With six weeks to go before MongoDB World 2019, learn how you could be giving to a good cause when you buy your pass this week, get ready for the next weekly challenge, and catch up with the latest talks that have made it into the schedule.
Give Back Week
If you haven’t registered for MongoDB World, the bad news is that you’ve missed the early bird rates. The good news is that if you register this week, you’ll get a discounted ticket and 10% of your ticket price will be donated to Black Girls Code.
That means you get to go to MongoDB World’s three days of information rich talks, sessions and events for less and you get to help fund an organisation dedicated to empowering girls of color between 7 and 17 to become STEM innovators, community leaders and future builders, all through exposing them to computer science and technology.
Head over to the MongoDB World site and register; the discount is automatically applied to all types of ticket. The donation to Black Girls Code is based on that discounted price.
The first week of Eliot’s MongoDB World Weekly Challenge was a great success - you can read up on how the challenge was solved in this post - Solving The Aggregation Rock Star Challenge. If you get over to the challenge's web site you’ll see the next challenge is tomorrow and involves charting a holiday for engineers.
There’s still talks being added to the schedule as we finalise speakers and subjects.
- Starting up: If you are looking for a quick introduction to the world of MongoDB, check out Don't Panic - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the MongoDB Galaxy, designed specifically to get you started. If you’re looking to get started with the official MongoDB Go driver, there’s Get Going: An Introduction to the Official MongoDB Go Driver to jump start your development.
- Scaling up: If you are working at scale, you may want to hear Sharding: Stories From the Field or look at how MongoDB Cluster Design: From Redundancy to GDPR can help you to build out a cluster that suits your needs.
- Experience: Talking about real world experience, there’s The Journey of Migration from Oracle to MongoDB at Rakuten and MongoDB Implementation at T-Mobile, where MongoDB users are talking about how they use the database.
- Education: MongoDB can both power learning platforms and be taught on them. Learn how in A Tale of Two Use Cases: Innovative MongoDB Solutions for Code Schools.
That's it for T-6, the countdown to MongoDB World 2019 continues with T-5 next week!
