This is the second part of a blog series that details how to develop a mobile application that is backed by MongoDB and a PaaS. MongoDB makes a great companion to this mobile application given its ability to shard and the nature of being able to store JSON documents with little data manipulation required. In this blog post, part two of the series, we will go over the required components and software in order to develop cross platform mobile applications for the iPhone and Android operating systems. We will also install and configure the backend systems, including mongodb,... Read More >
Online music distribution has continually been a hotbed of innovation. But last year, when giants like Spotify were making their entry into the US market, a small startup in New York City took over the desktop music scene. Turntable.fm, a listening party for the web, powered by MongoDB, was an overnight success, and captured the screens and headsets of the New York City tech scene. A year later, we sat down with Billy Chasen to discuss his team’s decision to use MongoDB in their stack and get some advice on best practices for MongoDB.
Hello everyone! Here’s what’s going on in the MongoDB world:
We're accepting more Masters into our MongoDB Masters program for stellar MongoDB contributors, evangelists and community members. You can submit MongoDB Masterminds here. We’re closing this round of nominations of June 15, so send in your nominations now!
We’re excited today to announce a partnership with Pentaho to bring Pentaho’s data integration and business intelligence capabilities to MongoDB users. With a set of connectors we’ve worked on jointly, you’ll now be able to use the Pentaho Business Analytics suite to analyze data in MongoDB. This rich tool set will help you quickly integrate MongoDB into your existing environments and leverage a comprehensive set of business intelligence capabilities.
If you’re an enterprise architect, you can use Pentaho’s scalable data integration framework to transform and load across MongoDB and other data stores in private data centers... Read More >
As developers get started with MongoDB, one of the initial challenges is figuring out how to best model data. On the user forum and at our events, the community is asking lots of schema design questions.
We need you to share your expertise! We want to hear stories on how you’ve modeled data in your MongoDB app, what tradeoffs you made, and the insights that you’ve had. This is an opportunity for the community to learn about schema design from real world examples.
Write a detailed blog post on your personal or company blog about how you designed... Read More >
This is the first in a 4-part series by Grant Shipley, Cloud Evangelist for Red Hat’s OpenShift Platform-as-a-service. Grant’s series will cover the development of “Beershift”, a mobile app for iPhone and Android built using Titanium, OpenShift and MongoDB. MongoDB makes a great companion to this mobile application given its ability to shard store JSON documents with little data manipulation required. In this blog post, we will go over the background of the application and discuss the features we plan to build.
I started developing iOS based applications shortly after the arrival of the iPhone on the market. Having... Read More >
This is a guest post by James Chesters, Community Manager for Skills Matter
MongoDB blew through London last week like an Oxfordshire twister — bringing talks and a practical tutorial to the community. Skills Matter’s Progressive NOSQL Tutorials offered three days of NOSQL talks and hands-on workshops, and wearing the MongoDB mantle was 10gen’s own Chris Harris, along with David Mytton of Server Density.
Chris Harris presented on MongoDB and Document Databases, answering burning questions like “What is a document database?” “Why was MongoDB created?” and “Why did they call it that?” before moving on to schema design,... Read More >
