Announcing the MongoDB.local SF Session Agenda

Allie Tsuchiya

At MongoDB.local SF, you can choose from 20+ technical sessions, jumpstarts, and tutorials tailored to a variety of interests and experience levels. MongoDB engineers will cover topics including schema design, analytics, microservices, performance, and more. With the conference less than one month away, it’s never too early to start planning your educational agenda. Check out this sample agenda highlighting top sessions taught by the experts:

Jumpstart: Your Introduction to MongoDB

New to MongoDB or need a refresher? Start your morning with this jumpstart session to get up to speed on key MongoDB concepts. In this talk we will cover MongoDB foundations that attendees can use to begin their journey in creating new apps. By the end of the talk, members attending should feel prepared for the rest of their time at MongoDB.local SF with essential information on how MongoDB works.

Building Your First App with MongoDB Stitch

Come learn more about MongoDB Stitch – our new Backend as a Service (BaaS) that makes it easy for developers to create and launch applications across mobile and web platforms. Stitch provides a REST API on top of MongoDB with read, write, and validation rules built in, plus full integration with the services you love. You’ll walk away from this Beginner Level session knowing how Stitch can kickstart your new project or take your existing application to the next level.

It’s 10:00 pm: Do You Know Where Your Writes Are?

MongoDB 3.6 delivers three new features to help you develop resilient applications: retryable writes, a cluster-wide killOp command, and zombie cursor cleanup. This new cluster-wide concept of user state is the quiet magic that allows you to know, with certainty, the status of your operations. In this Intermediate Level session, we will describe the above features in depth, discuss when and how logical sessions can be used by applications and administrators, and show you how we implemented sessions for large, distributed systems.

Powering Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, and MongoDB

Organizations are building their applications around microservice architectures because of the flexibility, speed of delivery, and maintainability they deliver. Want to try out MongoDB on your laptop? Execute a single command and you have a lightweight, self-contained sandbox; another command removes all trace when you're done. Replicate your complete application for your development, test, operations, and support teams. This Intermediate Level session introduces you to technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, and Kafka, which are driving the microservices revolution. Learn about containers and orchestration – and most importantly, how to exploit them for stateful services such as MongoDB.

Powerful Analysis with the Aggregation Pipeline

Think you need to move your data "elsewhere" to do powerful analysis? Think again. The most efficient way to analyze your data is where it already lives. Complete your day with this Advanced Level session to learn MongoDB Aggregation Pipeline best practices. The MongoDB Aggregation Pipeline has been getting more and more powerful, and using new stages, expressions, and tricks we can do extensive analysis of our data inside MongoDB Server.

You can check out the complete list of sessions here and customize your own MongoDB.local SF agenda. Don’t forget to schedule one-on-one consulting with a MongoDB expert and get your swag between sessions. After a full day of MongoDB education, join us for a cocktail reception to celebrate with the team that builds the database.
