Welcome and Introduction

7:00pm - 7:45pm

Schema Design

Craig Wilson, Software Engineer, MongoDB

MongoDB’s basic unit of storage is a document. Documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures, meaning that we have several viable alternatives to the normalized, relational model. In this talk, we’ll discuss the tradeoff of various data modeling strategies in MongoDB using a library as a sample application. You will learn how to work with documents, evolve your schema, and common schema design patterns.

7:45pm - 8:30pm

Data Access for MongoDB

Ron Bennatan, Principal Engineer,

The MongoDB data model and interface is heaven for developers - so it's easy to start. As MongoDB becomes the basis of more of your applications you need to give an easy way for all members of the team to access the data. Learn about a data access layer for MongoDB that allows analysts, data scientists, application support, QA engineers, ... everyone - to access data within MongoDB using simple searches, using conventional tools (such as Excel), and using Web Services/REST APIs.
