The MongoDB team is thrilled to be part of SCALE's 10-year anniversary conference in Los Angeles this year. Southern California Linux Expo has grown to a three-day mega-conference, attracting thousands of open source enthusiasts from around the world.
Meghan Gill, who supports community development and outreach for MongoDB, will present The Care and Feeding of an Open Source Community, discussing the developer-based outreach strategy that helped MongoDB to become a well-known project in the open source world. First made available in 2009, downloads of the document-oriented database software now exceed 100,000 each month. You can meet Meghan and other members of the 10gen team at the MongoDB booth during SCALE.
Because the MongoDB community has grown tremendously in Los Angeles, we're also hosting a full-day MongoDB conference on January 19, timed so that SCALE attendees from out of town can stop in to learn more about the document-oriented open source database. MongoDB Los Angeles will be the first full-day MongoDB conference in Southern California. Presentations include:
-Building Your First MongoDB Application (Antoin Girbal, 10gen)
-Using Spring and MongoDB with CloudFoundry (Josh Long, VMWare)
-Indexing and Query Optimizer (Kevin Hanson, 10gen)
-N2M: node.js and MongoDB as the modern stack for the real-time web (Jason Hoffman, Joyent)
The LA MongoDB User Group meetup will be held on the evening of January 18th, featuring a presentation from 10gen.
We're excited that the event will be co-located with SCALE, one of the premier events in the open source world. Don’t forget to register for MongoDB Los Angeles!
