Yuri Finkelstein, an Enterprise Architect on the team, will provide a technical overview of this mission-critical project and its underlying architecture and discuss why the team chose MongoDB for project Zoom. MongoDB and Meteor: an Architecture for Real-time Web Apps, Matt DeBergalis, Architect, Meteor Meteor is a new JavaScript application platform -- specifically designed to work with MongoDB -- for building modern real-time web applications. These applications, like live analytics dashboards or those that show live data feeds, all have a way to send real-time updates to connected users when documents in their database change. Meteor and MongoDB offer an elegant architecture for managing the flow of data in a realtime app using the familiar MongoDB APIs. This talk will dig into the architecture of a realtime app built on MongoDB. Matt will cover tips and tricks for using MongoDB in a realtime app and demonstrate some of the design patterns they’ve developed. A Year of Monitoring Production Deployments with MongoDB , Simon Maynard, Co-Founder, Bugsnag Bugsnag is a fast growing error monitoring service for web and mobile applications that is processing millions of errors every day, and was designed from the ground up to utilize MongoDB and its strengths.
