10gen at DrupalCon Munich

DrupalCon Munich came together last week with over 1800 Drupal fans from around the world. The 10gen booth had stickers, t-shirts, and — of course — MongoDB mugs aplenty to share with attendees. From 10gen's perspective, we are interested in how Drupal and MongoDB work together, and what we can do to help make their integration better. Derick Rethans gave a Birds of a Feather session on Wednesday on Practical MongoDB with Drupal, and was co-hosted by Drupal expert, Károly Négyesi (known to the community as chx ). Chx and Derick together were able to give advice on the MongoDB module for Drupal, as well as the EntityFieldQuery module. Wednesday evening had Derick doing more work directly with the MongoDB community when he gave a talk for approximately 30 people at the MÃÂ_nchen MongoDB User Group on “Indexing and Query Optimisation” in MongoDB, covering what is indexing, understanding different types of indexing, and working with indexes. It was well received, and feedback on the talk was complimentary. You can see the slides from the talk here: http://derickrethans.nl/talks/mongo-drupalcon12.pdf Thursday afternoon was the highlight of DrupalCon for us. Anyone who visited the 10gen stand over the previous two days or who had come along to the previous day's BoF had heard about Derick's Introduction to MongoDB talk, and it gave attendees a firm grounding in getting started with MongoDB. The slides from this talk can be seen here: http://derickrethans.nl/talks/mongo-drupalcon12.pdf DrupalCon 2013 will be held in Prague, and we plan to have a MongoDB presence at the conference again. With the improvements heralded by Drupal 8, along with increased awareness in the community of how MongoDB can be used with Drupal, we expect next year to be an even bigger success. 10gen returns to Munich this October for a full-day conference dedicated to MongoDB. MongoDB Munich comes to the city on October 16 — tickets are available here .

Forward Intel uses Mongo for ...causalâ?? analytics

This was originally posted to the Forward Intel blog Forward Intelligence Systems has chosen MongoDB to serve as the backend datastore to support DataPoint , a new analytics system designed to reveal deeper meaning behind typical business intelligence data. Endless tables, graphs and charts are replaced with simple decision-aiding ...plain English analytics“ to help make the job of the business analyst and company owner quicker and easier. DataPoint is designed to run on top of existing analytics systems like Google Analytics, Piwik, Open Web Analytics and HubSpot. Using the hosted solution, users simply connect their analytics account to their DataPoint profile and the application does the rest. DataPoint will import the data from multiple sources and will identify trends and patterns, removing the guesswork out of why a web site may have seen a decrease in traffic in the month of July. Using Bayesian math, DataPoint determines the causal relationship between an event and its most likely cause. MongoDB is a powerful semi-structured database engine built to withstand the increased traffic that today's web applications endure. It is fast, light-weight and extremely scalable, making it a clear and convincing choice for large scale business intelligence and analytics systems. Mongo stores data using a key/value paradigm within entities known as ...documents“, and queried using simple and straight-forward syntax similar to that of Structured Query Language (SQL). Mongo is schema-less, which means database developers are not confined to the typical column and row structure of relational databases. Dynamic data structures are essential for managing big data applications. Further - and critical to its power and flexibility - Mongo contains support for MapReduce, which is an engine that allows for rapid processing of large amounts of data. Implementing algorithms designed to chug through incredibly large volumes of data simply would not be feasible without Mongo's batch processing support. ...At Forward Intel, we're incredibly excited to start using MongoDB,“ said the company's CEO, Steve Adcock. “Mongo's recent award of over $40 million to further its development ensures that it is here to stay, and we are confident that Mongo will serve us quite well.“ Tagged with: analytics, production uses, mongodb good, MongoDB, Mongo, NoSQL, Polyglot persistence, 10gen
