The MongoDB team is very excited about how the developer community is building around MongoDB, and we wanted to share some numbers.
These are download numbers for the core server for January through March. It is exactly the number of downloads of the core database from downloads.mongodb.org minus all bots (all known plus anything with bot in the user-agent) and all other crawlers we determine. We use these numbers internally, so we do try and keep them accurate.

We are very excited about these numbers – please spread the word and help us continue growth of MongoDB!
MongoSF is Sold Out
In three weeks over 200 developers will gather in San Francisco to learn about, discuss, and hack on MongoDB at the first conference dedicated to Mongo. The multi-track conference includes sessions on schema design, administration, sharding, replication, and more, led by the 10gen developers working on the database. Also on the MongoSF agenda are several presentations on real-world deployments of MongoDB. Emmett Shear, the CTO of Justin.tv , will lead a session on event logging. Tony Tam of Wordnik - which is storing 1.2TB of data in over 5 billion records - will discuss moving from MySQL to Mongo. As Ryan Angilly recently blogged , he will talk about the process of getting MongoDB up and running in short order at Punchbowl Software . Michael Bryzek will explain how Gilt Groupe , one of the fastest-growing startups in the country, is using Mongo for real-time analytics. John Nunemaker and Steve Smith of Ordered List and RailsTips fame plan to showcase their OM MongoMapper and their Mongo-powered CMS Harmony App . 10gen is excited to be co-sponsoring MongoSF with Hashrocket and Dreamhost. Hashrocket developed Mongoid and recently completed a million-dollar project in which they built a pharmaceutical application with Mongo. Dreamhost provides Linux-based web hosting and offers instant configuration and deployment of MongoDB. If you didn’t register in time, there is still opportunity to attend. We’re looking for 4 volunteers to help with the event. Also, please add yourself to the waitlist - we’ll provide information on recordings, slides, and other resources from the event. MongoSF Volunteers Responsibilities Arrive early to conference for short orientation Assist with setup and registration Monitor one “track” of the conference Keep time and give speakers warnings (e.g. 5 minutes, wrap up, etc.) Set up and manage A/V and recording (bonus if you can lend us a camera for the day!) Direct attendees to the appropriate rooms and answer questions Benefits Access to sold out conference and after-party MongoDB polo shirt Invitation to dinner with the speakers and 10gen team the night before the conference To apply Email firstname.lastname@example.org one paragraph about why you’d like to volunteer!
MongoDB at AWS re:Invent 2020
While 2020 has been a challenging year, it has also given rise to new levels of innovative collaboration and agile thinking. Where better to experience both than at AWS re:Invent 2020? At MongoDB, we’re excited to partner with AWS on this free, 3-week virtual event, providing unlimited access to hundreds of sessions led by Cloud experts. Although we’ll miss the grand, buzzing halls of the Venetian Hotel and the celebratory sounds of slot machines this year, it’s still important to approach AWS re:Invent with a focused plan. Think of this year’s event as an opportunity to curate your own perfectly tailored experience. Check out this page for details of our fresh new lineup of deep-dives, targeted jam sessions and — of course — the annual MongoDB late-night party. Here are some of the highlights. AWS Jam — "Excel isn't a database!" Imagine this: It's your first week in a new job, and the VP of sales has already given you an important data task. The good news? From the start of the year, all your current sales data has been stored in MongoDB Atlas — allowing operational and analytical workloads to run on the live data set. The not-so-good news? That wasn't always the case. For years before they switched, their database (well, ”database”) of choice was… Excel. Fortunately someone took the initiative to export that data in CSV format and store it in S3, but now the sales team needs your help to analyze that data — and they need it fast. In our “Excel isn’t a database!” Jam Session, you’ll test and upgrade your skills by connecting MongoDB Atlas Data Lake to CSV data that’s been languishing in an S3 bucket. Then you’ll run an aggregation to complete the challenge and claim points. Game on! This jam session will be available on-demand for the duration of AWS re:Invent Databases & S3: Auto-archiving Breakout Session Databases are built for fast access, but this can also make them resource-intensive. As data grows, you may want to optimize performance (or cost) by migrating old or infrequently used data into cheap object storage. But this presents its own problems: automating the archival process, ensuring data consistency during failures, and either querying two data stores separately or building a query federation system. In this talk, you’ll learn about how we approached these problems while building Online Archive and Federated Query features into MongoDB Atlas, lessons learned from the experience, and how you can do the same.
