Hi, my name is Vishy Karra and I recently joined 10gen as VP, Engineering. I'm writing to share my thoughts on why I joined 10gen.
I have spent most of my adult life thinking about and working on database issues - through my graduate studies at UW-Madison and then in the industry first at Sybase and then Oracle. A big part of the reason I left Oracle 7 years ago to join VMware was my view that database technology had matured to the point that no major innovation was required.
We’re seeing tutorials from the MongoDB community about introducing MongoDB with Ruby… with the OpenShift or CloudFoundry platforms… with Spring… on using MongoDB’s MapReduce or geospatial indexing features. Are you a MongoDB expert who has a tutorial to share? If so, we’d love to hear from you in our July developer blog contest.
The rules are simple: share your knowledge of MongoDB by writing a tutorial or updating a tutorial that you have already created. Do it all in a detailed blog post, with step-by-step instructions for building an application with... Read More >
On July 7 we will be hosting a free webinar about developing web applications with MongoDB. This one-hour session will walk you through building a simple location-based checkin application using MongoDB. We’ll cover MongoDB’s document-oriented data model, the MongoDB query language, using the map/reduce framework, and deployment strategies and architecture.
Topic: Building your first MongoDB Application Date: Thursday July 7, 2011 Time: 1:30pm ET / 10:30am PT Presenter: Nosh Petigara, Director of Product Strategy, 10gen

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!
MongoDB is made in New York City, and while 10gen has since expanded to the west coast, we love being part of the New York tech community. That’s why we are so excited to support HackNY.
HackNY connects talented students with startups in New York. We have had a lot of fun introducing MongoDB to the next generation of student hackers at the HackNY hackathons. We participated in the first summer fellows program last year, and look forward to hosting summer fellows in the future.
HackNY is a non-profit, and this year the organization hopes to expand.... Read More >
