Ten Years On, Still Going Strong - The MongoDB-User Community

This February is the ten-year anniversary of the creation of the mongodb-user group, a group which has been and still is the backbone of the MongoDB community. From its early days as a founder-supported channel for help and feedback, it has evolved through various forms from a nexus for support question to now, where it is a space where the MongoDB user community can share their knowledge - and that's a lot of knowledge with thirty-four thousand topics.

Monkigras is a small conference in the UK with a big reputation.
