Simple Java Web Apps with MongoDB

Scott Hernandez, Software Engineer, MongoDB

November 11 2011

We will take an extremely hard and challenging topic, to quickly (20 minutes) build an app with Stripes, Guice, Morphia and the MongoDB driver. In this fast-paced demo we will build an app from start to finish. It won't be the next great social network app with viral marketing and a mobile presence but it will flex the power of MongoDB (ever so slightly) and show how all the pieces fit together with Java; most of the concepts are directly applicable to any language/platform. The last 30 minutes will be an interactive question and answer period; We can add more features to the demo app and explore any areas in MongoDB which might need some light shed on it. No area will be off-limits; nor will any ideas be outside the scope of this interactive coding session. If we have time we can replace the single MongoDB instance with a sharded, and replicated cluster of nodes to show how the application continues to function without any changes.
