Online Conference: Deep Dive with MongoDB

Online Conference: Deep Dive with MongoDB

Wednesday July 11th 3:00pm UTC

Recordings of the sessions as well as the Q&A sessions are now available.

Talks:

Building Your First App

Asya Kamsky, Senior Solutions Architect, 10gen

  • This talk will introduce the features of MongoDB by walking through how one can build a simple location-based checkin application using MongoDB. The talk will cover the basics of MongoDB's document model, query language, map-reduce framework and deployment architecture.

Schema Design with MongoDB: Principles and Practices

Antoine Girbal, Solutions Architect, 10gen

  • One of the challenges that comes with moving to MongoDB is figuring how to best model your data. While most developers have internalized the rules of thumb for designing schemas for RDBMSs, these rules don't always apply to MongoDB. The simple fact that documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures means that we have a lot of viable alternatives to the standard, normalized, relational model. Not only that, MongoDB has several unique features, such as atomic updates and indexed array keys, that greatly influence the kinds of schemas that make sense.

Replication and Replica Sets

Asya Kamsky, Senior Solutions Architect, 10gen

  • MongoDB supports replication for failover and redundancy. In this session we will introduce the basic concepts around replica sets, which provide automated failover and recovery of nodes. We'll show you how to set up, configure, and initiate a replica set, and methods for using replication to scale reads. We'll also discuss proper architecture for durability.

Introducing MongoDB into Your Organization

Edouard Servan-Schreiber, Director for Solution Architecture, 10gen

  • Description: Adoption of MongoDB has accelerated tremendously among developers in the past 18 months, and many large enterprises have now deployed MongoDB in reliable and large scale production environments. However, for many developers, it remains a challenge to convince production teams and business stakeholders to adopt an open source technology that has not been certified yet by their IT teams. This session will provide you with the compelling arguments to reassure business and production teams such as:
  • Public customer references and real-world case studies (migration, and adoption stories)
  • Deployment support and practices for robustness
  • How MongoDB contributes to your company’s business value
