#World 2016#Events#Company

MongoDB World 2016 was the biggest MongoDB conference to date. Members of the global MongoDB community came together over the course of three days to learn through sessions, workshops, and one-on-one sessions with the team that builds MongoDB.

Check out our most popular sessions below:

Financial Transaction Management and Analysis: Distributed Ledgers, Blockchain + MongoDB

Blockchain is a decentralized, distributed ledger and the underlying technology powering the most disruptive applications in finance, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Blockchain allows users to safely validate transactions without need for an intermediary 3rd party. While blockchain promises major upheavals in fintech, we need integrate blockchain with MongoDB to produce truly performant, innovative and robust financial applications.

Reusing Tests for Fun and Profit

MongoDB is well-known for its flexibility and for a rich feature set that users have come to know and love. With so many ways to use MongoDB, it's impractical to enumerate and test all possible configurations and workloads an application might run. How do the engineers at MongoDB then ensure that the database behaves correctly no matter what our users throw at it?

ETL for Pros: Getting Data into MongoDB the Right Way

Many applications require processes that load large amounts of data into MongoDB. It is easy to get these processes wrong, resulting in hours or days of loading time when it could be done in minutes. This talk identifies common mistakes and pitfalls and shows design patterns that can dramatically improve performance. Topics include: How to turn rows and columns into complex documents, doing efficient joins, tuning the bulk loading process. The patterns introduced here can be used with any tool or programming language.

NOW TV and Linear Streaming: Scaling MongoDB for High Load Events

NOW TV’s customer base has tripled year on year, and linear event streaming has become a greater and greater percentage of their viewing. This talk will take you through the lessons we learned following one unfortunate event in 2014 which led NOW TV to catastrophic failure, and the improvements and scalability challenges we were faced with when preparing for the same event just one year later.

Bringing IoT to AXA

Our “Connected Home” solution aggregates events from the AXA France IOT partners' APIs, in order to set up new customer services for insurance products. AXA France is a “country-pilot” for IOT opportunities. To build this application, we needed a flexible architecture that could evolve with our agile methodology, frameworks and DDD practices. In this talk you’ll learn more about our architectural evolution with MongoDB, from IaaS, to on premise and into the cloud. We discuss: Why we decided on MongoDB with Ops Manager and Node.js as our language of choice, why we chose different hosting options during different phases of project development, and how we work with the MongoDB team to follow their roadmap, get the features we need right away, and get the most out of our relationship.

Enabling IoT at Proximus

Proximus is one of the biggest Telecom companies in the Belgian market. This year the company began developing a new IoT network using LoRaWan technology. The talk details our development team’s search for a database suited to meet the needs of our IoT project, the selection and implementation of MongoDB as a database, as well as well as how we built a system for storing a variety of sensor data with high throughput by leveraging sleepy mongoose. The talk will also discuss how different decisions around data storage impact applications in regards to both performance and total cost.
