Nominations for the 2016 MongoDB Masters Program are Open
January 15, 2016
We’re excited to announce that nominations for membership in next year's MongoDB Masters program are now open. New members will be announced in June and will be invited to participate in the MongoDB Masters Summit held before MongoDB World.
What is the MongoDB Masters program?
The Masters program is a special effort to gather a group of experts outside of MongoDB for the sake of sharing knowledge, educating other users, and serving as leaders in our community. The folks we're looking to attract have both real world experience with MongoDB and exceptional expertise within their domain.
How will Masters be chosen?
MongoDB Masters are our best community advocates and MongoDB experts. This year we will be choosing MongoDB Masters based on their work in the Advocacy Hub.
What is the MongoDB Advocacy Hub?
Advocacy Hub is a portal designed to engage our most enthusiastic users in a personal fashion. The Hub is a place where they can learn more about MongoDB but also increase technical skills and understanding. Members of the Hub, who we call Giants, complete challenges and earn points for participating in the community. We’ve already seen a great amount of interest in the short time since its launch. This year, we are using the hub to identify and reward our best advocates, and put new candidates on the path towards becoming a Master.
Anyone in the MongoDB Community can join the Advocacy Hub through our open sign up. Those who excel on the Hub will become contenders for the MongoDB Masters Program.
You can nominate a MongoDB Master by joining the Advocacy Hub and completing the “Nominate a Master” challenge. You can nominate yourself if you’d like to be a Master. It will only take you 3 minutes. Once you’re done, have a peek around and see the other technical challenges that you can complete to learn more about MongoDB.
We look forward to seeing your nominations!
Community participation provides us with the feedback required to make our product better, for users to share experiences, and for the expansion of knowledge and expertise around MongoDB. We’re looking forward to seeing your nominations and announcing the next Masters!
Become an active member of our community.
