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!
Atlas Charts Adds a Dedicated Hub for Managing Embedded Charts and Dashboards
Since the release of the Charts Embedding SDK in May of 2020, developers have been exploring powerful new ways to visualize and share data from their MongoDB Atlas clusters. Embedding charts and dashboards is a valuable use case for Charts users and the new Embedding Page streamlines the embedding experience for first time users and veterans alike. Everything you need on one screen Don’t worry if the concept of embedding within the MongoDB Charts platform is new to you. The Getting Started tab provides configuration guidance, and links to video references, code snippets, live sandboxes, and other resources to help you get started. But just as your applications may evolve according to your needs, your embedding requirements may also change over time. Once you have set up an embedded dashboard or chart, the Items tab acts as the landing page. Think of this as a live snapshot of your current embedding environment. You’ll see a list of all of your charts grouped by their dashboards, be able to search based on title or description, and filter the list to show only dashboards. Within each row, you can view a chart or dashboard’s embedded status, see which type of embedding is enabled, view and copy the embedding ID, and access the full suite of embedding settings available for each item. This means that you can add filters or change your embedding method without having to know exactly where every chart or related setting lives. This approach also lets you operate with confidence on one single page. How cool is that? Authentication settings The Charts SDK allows you to configure unauthenticated embedding for dashboards or charts, making for a painless way to share these items in a safe and controlled environment. Depending on your use case, this setup may be a little more flexible than you’d like. The Authentication Settings tab contains authentication provider settings, giving project owners a single source of truth for adding and maintaining providers. Our focus for this feature is on simplicity and consolidation. We believe wholeheartedly that if we can enable you to spend less time hunting down where to configure settings or find resources, you can focus more on what really matters and build great software. For more information on authentication options, read our documentation . New to MongoDB Atlas Charts? Get started today by logging in to or signing up for MongoDB Atlas , deploying or selecting a cluster, and activating Charts for free.
