We’re seeing a lot of interesting case studies about migrations from relational databases to MongoDB. Do you have a similar story? If so, we’d love to hear from you in our May developer blog contest.
Contest Rules The rules are simple: tell us what database you started with, and describe why and how you made the switch to MongoDB. Do it all in a detailed blog post. Here are some questions you might consider answering, just to get you started:
How far along was your application when you starting thinking about migrating?
We are very excited to announce that Red Hat will distribute a MongoDB cartridge as part of its OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service offering, launched today at the Red Hat Summit in Boston.
OpenShift is a PaaS platform for developers who build on open source. It redefines the PaaS market by providing a new level of choice in languages, frameworks and clouds for developers to build, test, run and manage their applications.
This year 10gen will be participating in Red Hat Summit, held in Boston May 3-6. If you are interested in learning more about MongoDB, please stop by our booth in the Cloud Pavilion on Tuesday or Wednesday. Nosh, Ben, and Meghan will be there.
In addition, Nosh will be giving a short presentation on MongoDB in the Cloud Pavilion on Wednesday, May 4th at 12:40pm. We look forward to seeing you there!

HackNY is a non-profit, and this year the organization hopes to expand.... Read More >
