Welcome and Keynote

Max Schireson, CEO, MongoDB; Robert Ames, SVP, In-Q-Tel

10gen and the In-Q-Tel Big Data Portfolio

9:50am - 10:30am

Schema Design

Gary Murakami, Ruby Evangelist / 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.

Social Content Management with MongoDB

Sandra O'Keeffe, Architect, Rivet Logic

We will provide an overview of the architecture and design of a lightweight content management system built on MongoDB. Ideally suited for managing social content -- creating a blog site, a discussion forum, or adding user generated content to an existing website -- Crafter Social is an open source Java app built on MongoDB. Our talk will focus on design considerations and MongoDB's unique features that make it perfectly suitable as a highly-scalable, multi-tenant social object store. We use MongoDB to store social objects of all types: user comments, threaded discussions, blog entries, and more. The document-oriented approach of MongoDB provides the foundation for social content management applications that need high-performance, high-scalability, and rapid speed of development. We also cover our design approach for user profile management, which supports configurable (on-the-fly) profile attributes, roles management, and pluggable authentication.

10:35am - 11:15am

Replication

James Kerr, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB

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.

Understanding MongoDB Storage for Performance and Data Safety

Mathias Stearn, Software Engineer, MongoDB

MongoDB supports write-ahead journaling of operations to facilitate fast crash recovery and durability in the storage engine. In this session, we'll give an overview of durability with MongoDB, demo journaling, and discuss journaling internals.

Coffee Break

11:30am - 12:10pm

Fun Teaching MongoDB New Tricks

Robert Moore, President, Allanbank Consulting, Inc.

MongoDB is the trusted document store we turn to when we have tough data store problems to solve. For this talk we are going to go a little bit off the path and explore what other roles we can fit MongoDB into. Others have discussed how to turn MongoDB’s capped collections into a publish/subscribe server. We stretch that a little further and turn MongoDB into a full fledged broker with both publish/subscribe and queue semantics, and a the ability to mix them. We will provide code and a running demo of the queue producers and consumers. Next we will turn to coordination services: We will explore the fundamental features and show how to implement them using MongoDB as the storage engine. Again we will show the code and demo the coordination of multiple applications.

Capacity Planning

Gary Murakami, Ruby Evangelist / Engineer, MongoDB

Deploying MongoDB can be a challenge if you don't understand how resources are used nor how to plan for the capacity of your systems. If you need to deploy, or grow, a MongoDB single instance, replica set, or tens of sharded clusters then you probably share the same challenges in trying to size that deployment. This talk will cover what resources MongoDB uses, and how to plan for their use in your deployment. Topics covered will include understanding how to model and plan capacity needs from the perspective of a new deployment, growing an existing one, and defining where the steps along scalability on your path to the top. The goal of this presentation will be to provide you with the tools needed to be successful in managing your MongoDB capacity planning tasks.

12:15pm - 12:55pm

Sharding Overview

Edouard Servan-Schreiber, Director for Solution Architecture, MongoDB

Sharding allows you to distribute load across multiple servers and keep your data balanced across those servers. This session will review MongoDB’s sharding support, including an architectural overview, design principles, and automation.

Backup and Recovery Strategies and Options

James Kerr, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB

Come learn about the different ways to back up your single servers, replica sets, and sharded clusters.

Whiteboard Session

Text Search Live Demo

Eliot Horowitz, CTO/Co-Founder, MongoDB

Text search is one of the most requested features for MongoDB. 10gen is working on an experimental text-search feature, to be released in v2.4. This talk will go through the native implementation of text search in the server.

Building social IRC bots with Node.js and MongoDB

Ryan Jarvinen, Open Platform Advocate, Red Hat

Improve your team's productivity and encourage participation with social IRC bots! Find out how to create scoreboards, encourage positive communication by awarding points, and bring your bot to life using OpenShift, Red Hat's free auto-scaling Platform as a Service. We'll power our bot using an OpenShift "gear", then add a MongoDB for memory, and teach it to speak using a javascript-based IRC library for node.js.

Federal Track: MongoDB for Spatio-Behavioral Data Analysis and Visualization

John-Isaac Clark, CIO, Thermopylae Sciences & Technology

T-Sciences offers iSpatial - a web-based Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) to enable integration of third-party applications with geo-visualization tools. The iHarvest tool further enables the mining and analysis of data aggregated in the iSpatial platform for spatio-temporal behavior modelling. At the back-end of both products is MongoDB, providing fundamental framework capabilities for the spatial indexing and data analysis techniques. Come witness how Thermopylae Sciences and Technology leveraged the aggregation framework, and extended the spatial capabilities of MongoDB to tackle dynamic spatio-behavioral data at scale.

Aggregation Options in 2.2

Mathias Stearn, Software Engineer, MongoDB

In version 2.2, we introduced a new framework for aggregating data to complement MongoDB’s built-in map/reduce capabilities. The aggregation framework makes it simple to do tasks such as counting, averaging, and finding minima or maxima while grouping by keys in a collection. After introducing the syntax and usage patterns for the new aggregation system, we will give some demonstrations of aggregation using the new system.

Federal Track: MongoDB with GeoServer

JP Prochazka, Software Engineer/ Integrator, RadiantBlue Technologies, Inc.

This presentation will dive into a development team’s use case for choosing MongoDB as their spatially enabled NoSQL solution. The talk will also cover how the integration of GeoServer can expand the accessibility of your data. GeoServer is the open source implementation of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards and a core component of the Geospatial Web.

Visualizing MongoDB Objects in Concept and Practice

Craig Vitter, Software Engineer, IKANOW

Do you have a database full of JSON objects crying out for visual analysis? In this talk we will describe the different visualization concepts that apply to objects and showcase open source technologies that provide that capability (for free) and give you the basic tools you need to get started. Topics covered will include: - A quick overview of JSON objects (properties, ways to reference other objects, etc.); - Simple examples of working with JSON via JavaScript; - How to turn JSON documents into visual feasts using tools like the GoogleMaps API and D3.js library.
