MongoDC is happening on June 26 at the Wooly Mammoth Theatre in Washington DC. At MongoDC many attendees are just learning about or evaluating MongoDB to see if it is the right fit for their use case, while others are in development or in production and are looking for a little more depth. A lot of your are also interested in best practices to optimize your use of MongoDB. To help you plan your day, here’s a curated list of talks for you to attend based on what you’d like to get out of MongoDB.
MongoLab is excited to offer free hosted databases running on MongoDB 2.1!

Here's a common myth that I've heard before: ...MongoDB design is easy because its schema-less.â€œ I disagree with this. It's true that a thoughtful design will yield
During Part 2 of this BeerShift series, we went over all of the required dependencies required for the BeerShift application to run. We installed Titanium Studio, Xcode, the Android SDK, and the OpenShift client tools. We also signed up for OpenShift and created an application for our backend REST services and added a mongo database.
In this blog post, we will go over the backend REST services and get everything up and running on the OpenShift cloud. We will also register for a brewerydb.com API key and add it to our application so that... Read More >
