News from MongoDB.local NYC

Steve Jurczak

After a triumphant return to live events with a three-day blowout in 2022, we decided to spread the love in 2023 with a series of smaller MongoDB.local events hosted in cities all over the world. On June 22, we held our first big event in New York's Javits Center. And, since it's New York City after all, it seemed like a good time to break some news.

Keynote session

There were developer jumpstarts and expert sessions beginning at 8 a.m. So, by the time MongoDB CEO Dev Ittycheria took to the Build Stage at 10 a.m. for the day's keynote address, things were already well underway.

Ittycheria's speech underscored a consistent theme: that the real world is not static, that every business is driven by software, and since businesses operate in real-time, software has to be real-time, too. Whether that means breaking down relational data silos or streaming data for event-driven architectures, the drive for smarter, faster applications shows no sign of slowing. Other keynote presenters included MongoDB Chief Product Officer Sahir Azam, who announced the private preview of MongoDB Atlas Stream Processing and the general availability (GA) of MongoDB Relational Migrator.

Breaking product news from MongoDB.local NYC

MongoDB's Relational Migrator is now available to help organizations transition away from legacy databases and streamline their transition to MongoDB. Relational Migrator tackles some of the most common challenges in migration projects: effective data modeling, migrating data, and modernizing app code.

Though Kotlin has historically been known for Android development, about half of Kotlin developers are using the language for server-side use cases. To that end, we are delighted to announce that the official MongoDB server-side Kotlin driver is now generally available.

Other updates from MongoDB.local NYC

MongoDB is thrilled to announce the public preview of our new Vector Search capability designed to meet the demands of data in all forms. AI applications rely on vector search to satisfy queries like “give me movies that feel sad” or “give me images that look like…” This new feature unlocks a whole new class of capabilities.

Responsive, event-driven applications bring digital experiences to life for customers and accelerate time-to-insight and action for businesses. At MongoDB .local NYC, we announced the private preview of Atlas Stream Processing. It enables the processing of high-velocity streams of complex data with a few unique advantages for the developer experience.

At .local NYC, we also rolled out a new feature that enables companies to install the Atlas Kubernetes Operator and export existing deployments through the MongoDB CLI for simpler infrastructure management and provisioning.

Last, but not least, was the announcement of MongoDB Atlas' new resource tagging functionality. You can now organize and manage Atlas resources with improved efficiency by applying tags to categorize database deployments based on your business needs.
