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.

SixPlus has been dubbed the OpenTable for groups. Their website and app helps you find and book the best private and semi-private spaces for private group dining events of six or more people.
View the MongoDB World 2018 sessions
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. View All Sessions Enjoy! P.S. If you’d rather learn about these topics in person, check out our upcoming events .

Two Days Left to Apply for a MongoDB World Scholarship
Since welcoming the first Diversity Scholarship recipients in 2014, each year I look forward to meeting the new class of Scholars at MongoDB World .

This year, I’m excited to share that scholarship recipients located outside of the tristate area will also receive a complimentary 3-night hotel stay at the NY Hilton Midtown. We recognize the cost of a hotel room in New York City can be significant, and hope this removes another barrier that may prevent some applicants from attending. In addition to a complimentary hotel stay, scholarship recipients get*: Complimentary admission to MongoDB World Complimentary admission to a workshop Invitation to a lunch session with other Scholars Speed mentoring with MongoDB speakers at the event A MongoDB certification voucher applicable for both developer and DBA certification exams Six-month access to on-demand MongoDB University courses Lifelong membership in the online MongoDB Diversity Scholars community A feature in a blog post Members of underrepresented groups in tech** qualify to apply for a scholarship.
