Countdown to MongoDB World 2019: T-10 Weeks - The Hackathon and The First Sneak Peeks

With ten weeks to go before we open the doors at MongoDB World, we wanted to give you a taste of what's going to be going on in some of the tracks. First, a quick reminder of when and where - the conference is running for three days, June 17th to the 19th, at the Hilton Midtown in New York City. Make sure you have that marked in your diary while we tell you about the Hackathon and what's going on at the conference.

Announcing the MongoDB Diversity and Innovator Scholarships for 2019

Diversity is a core value of MongoDB and to make sure that there is diversity, it is essential to create real opportunities. That's the idea behind our Diversity and Innovator Scholarship programs which have been in place since 2014 and 2016 respectively. These scholarships are now open for applications and nominations until April 19th.

MongoDB World 2018 drew MongoDB community members from across the globe. At the event, attendees were able to meet with experts, connect with one another, and have a good time at the daily closing receptions.

If you weren’t able to attend and followed the #MDBW18 hashtag, chances are you found yourself dealing with a bit of FOMO. But just because you missed out on the in-person experience doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the learning.

From the keynotes to the panels, we filmed the majority of this year’s sessions. Now, you can view them at your convenience.


P.S. If you’d rather learn about these topics in person, check out our upcoming events. MongoDB.local might be coming to a city near you for a one-day, educational conference. First up? Chicago, Austin, and DC.

Learn more about transactions at MongoDB World

In February, we announced that MongoDB 4.0 will support multi-document transactions. Curious to know what this will look like? Aly Cabral, Product Manager at MongoDB, is excited to share an early version of the syntax:

Each feature we build is with users like you in mind. When you attend our events, you’re able to connect with the people who work on the database you use every day – like Aly. In sessions, Birds of a Feather meetings, and one-on-one in Ask the Experts, you get to ask questions, share ideas, and be heard.

Additionally, you learn tips and tricks from power users and companies that will allow you to optimize your deployments. To get your hands on new tools to accelerate your development goals, join us at MongoDB World, June 26-27 in NYC.
