Daniel Roberts, Solutions Architect at 10gen, will offer an introductory overview of MongoDB at the first Thames Valley (Reading) MongoDB User Group Meetup on March 28th. Experienced MongoDB users, developers new to NoSQL, and students are all welcome to attend the talk, which will be hosted at the Amen Corner offices of HP.
The main topic areas to be covered during the meetup include:
Creating schemas for a document-oriented DB
Scaling with MongoDB (replica sets, master/slave, auto-sharding)
Interesting features for developers (geospatial indexing, capped collections, file storage, upserts)
Attendees will learn how trading off a few traditional features of databases (notably joins and transactions) helps MongoDB to achieve much better performance. Can’t make it to Wednesday’s meetup? Join the group to hear about subsequent meetups, guest speakers, and more.
