Thank you to the 2000+ in-person attendees, 2,000+ live stream viewers, and 30+ sponsors who attended MongoDB World. For those of you who were unable to attend, we’ve gathered our favorite highlights into our Extend the Experience microsite.
Leading up to MongoDB World, we told you something giant was coming. We were excited to announce and demo MongoDB Atlas, our new database as a service. MongoDB Atlas makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale your MongoDB deployments in the cloud.
We also introduced the general availability of our new, native MongoDB Connector for Apache Spark. With the combination of MongoDB and Spark, developers can seamlessly build data driven applications. You can learn more by reading our announcement or join our webinar at the end of the month.
