November 6th
United Kingdom, London

Register Now / Sponsor This Event

Wondering why everyone is so excited about MongoDB? Want to learn how to start using MongoDB to build and manage modern applications? Already a power user but looking to deepen your skills? Looking to mingle with the engineers who build MongoDB and fellow MongoDB enthusiasts?

If you said "yes" to any of the above, then MongoDB London is the event for you.

We'll start the day with fast-paced and highly-technical sessions for people new to MongoDB, and then jump right into the technical deep end.

  • You'll hear from our Co-Founder and CTO about the future roadmap for MongoDB.
  • You'll learn how to get the most from MongoDB in technical sessions from our key engineers.
  • You'll get great ideas, and a few hands-on tips, from MongoDB customers, across a variety of interesting use cases.

Along the way you'll meet other Architects, Developers, Ops people and Technical Business Leads from the Seattle area, all of whom share an interest in developing applications they could never build before, all with MongoDB.

Please register below for a highly-productive day of learning and fun. Admission includes access to sessions, 1x1 time with a MongoDB engineer during Ask the Experts, lunch and refreshments.

Time Development Focus Operations Focus Case Studies
8:00am - 9:00am Coffee and Registration
9:00am - 9:40am Dev Jumpstart: Build Your First App with MongoDB
Speaker to Be Announced, MongoDB
New to MongoDB? This talk will introduce the philosophy and features of MongoDB. We’ll discuss the benefits of the document-based data model that MongoDB offers by walking through how one can build a simple app to store books. We’ll cover inserting, updating, and querying the database of books. This session will jumpstart your knowledge of MongoDB development, providing you with context for the rest of the day's content.
Ops Jumpstart: MongoDB Administration 101
Speaker to Be Announced, MongoDB
New to MongoDB? We'll provide an overview of installation, high availability through replication, scale out through sharding, and options for monitoring and backup. No prior knowledge of MongoDB is assumed. This session will jumpstart your knowledge of MongoDB operations, providing you with context for the rest of the day's content.
9:45am - 10:15am Welcome to MongoDB London
Eliot Horowitz, CTO and Co-Founder, MongoDB
10:25am - 11:05am MongoDB for the Internet of Things
John Page, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB
Where data comes from physical sensors and monitoring tools it comes thick and fast - the so called 'Internet of Things' is one of the fastest growing sources of "Big Data"; Data that is too large to process using traditional methods. In this session we will connect up nearly 5,000 sensors in the auditorium that you, the audience, can interact with during the presentation to give audience feedback. We will then show the evolution of the schema design for processing this data : from a traditional approach implemented correctly in MongoDB through to making use of the unique properties of MongoDB to efficiently produce realtime and retrospective analytics of how the session went.
To Be Announced 3D + MongoDB = 3D Repo
Jozef Doboš
3D Repo (, winner of the MongoDB Innovation Award, is a non-linear version control system that enables coordinated management of large scale 3D models over the Internet. It is currently the only cloud-based architecture able to support maintenance and transmission of 3D models and associated metadata as well as rendering on the scale required by the industry. With MongoDB we can deliver significant improvements in the engineering workflow that supports collaborative design not possible otherwise. Instead of architects, engineers and constructors sharing massive files in a costly and time consuming manner, they can simply point their web browser to a shared online 3D repository. With our system, all stakeholders are able to examine their projects virtually, even on mobile devices. During the presentation, we will demonstrate the management of massive 3D models in a repository built directly atop of MongoDB. We will also demonstrate our online web-browser viewer capable of rendering 3D models directly from the DB without the need to install any plug-ins or firewall exceptions.
11:15am - 12:00pm Socialite, the Open Source Status Feed
Asya Kamsky, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB
Building a complete social networking platform presents many challenges at scale. Socialite is a reference architecture and open source Java implementation of a scalable social feed service built on DropWizard and MongoDB. We'll provide an architectural overview of the platform, explaining how you can store an infinite timeline of data while optimizing indexing and sharding configuration for access to the most recent window of data. We'll also dive into the details of storing a social user graph in MongoDB.
To Be Announced How MongoDB is Used in FinServ
Jim Duffy, Business Architect for Global Financial Services, MongoDB
More coming soon!
12:00pm - 1:00pm Lunch
1:00pm - 1:50pm MongoDB and Hadoop: Driving Business Insights
Speaker to Be Announced, MongoDB
MongoDB and Hadoop can work together to solve big data problems facing today's enterprises. We will take an in-depth look at how the two technologies complement and enrich each other with complex analyses and greater intelligence. We will take a deep dive into the MongoDB Connector for Hadoop and how it can be applied to enable new business insights with MapReduce, Pig, and Hive, and demo a Spark application to drive product recommendations.
Run MongoDB with Confidence: Backing up and Monitoring with MMS
Sam Weaver, Solutions Architect, MongoDB
MongoDB Management Service (MMS) is the application for managing MongoDB, created by the engineers who develop MongoDB. MMS provides visibility into the performance of your cluster, alerting when key metrics are out of range and backup and recovery of your mission critical data. This session will provide you with an overview of MMS, including installation and setup and a walk through of metrics and alerts. Then we'll compare and contrast the various different backup strategies, with a deep dive on using MMS to back up your MongoDB data.
Lightning Talk: Pure Storage
Craig Halliwell, Manager, Emerging Alliances, Pure Storage
High performance systems at scale can challenge storage infrastructures. Today, many MongoDB customers are addressing this by moving to all-flash shared storage platforms, which can dramatically reduce latency. Hear from the experts at enterprise storage provider Pure Storage on how 3 leading online SaaS providers have improved performance, become more efficient, and simplified their MongoDB infrastructure with all-flash storage.
2:00pm - 2:50pm Lightning Talk: Jaspersoft
Ben Connors, Worldwide Head of Alliances, TIBCO Analytics
MongoDB analytics that bring real value to the data are becoming more important to successful MongoDB deployments. This presentation will review various approaches for MongoDB analytics, including batch, real-time, and extended functions, including the pros and cons of each. It will include a brief demonstration of how to apply these techniques to example MongoDB data.

4:00pm - 4:50pm To Be Announced Diagnostics and Debugging
Asya Kamsky, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB
You've hit some bottleneck in MongoDB. Now what do you do? How do you figure out what part of your system is causing the problem? MongoDB offers a number of tools for diagnosing performance issues and monitoring areas of your application and infrastructure that may need additional resources or attention. These include mongostat, mongotop, various parts of MMS and mtools. In this talk we will walk through a number of performance scenarios and use these tools to diagnose problems and common (and not so common) pitfalls in your MongoDB cluster.
