A very short interview with Tomislav Zorc, organiser of the Munich MongoDB User Group

Every month we bring you interviews with members of our MongoDB community — including organisers of MongoDB user groups from around the world The Munich MongoDB User Group is the first and the largest MUG in the German speaking area, and is sponsored and run jointly by comSysto and 10gen. So far, the group have had more than 10 meetups aiming for monthly meetups with lightning talks, pizza or sandwiches and cold drinks. Tomislav Zorc and Bernd Zuther, software engineers for comSysto, will be giving a talk, Pizza “Quattro Shardoni” with comSysto” at MongoDB Munich on October 16 . A very short interview with Tomislav Zorc, organiser of the Munich MongoDB User Group What are the biggest challenges you have running the Munich MongoDB User Group? Running this meetup and meeting likeminded people is great fun, so we can not really talk about challenges. We are continuously working on the extension of our reach and recognition, since there are still plenty of people out there that should know about and visit the Munich User Group. How do you find your speakers for the group? Finding good speakers has proven to be the easiest part, our talk pipeline is full for this year! The comSysto crew and our clients are working on thrilling MongoDB projects that we want to share with the world. 10gen and their partners have also sent several excellent speakers. How have you helped and encouraged the user group to grow? We are promoting the group through our own network, many social media channels like XING, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, related local User Groups, as well as through our company newsletter. 10gen has also provided great help with the promotion. What advice would you give to someone who was starting their own user group? Find great speakers with moving topics and just talk about them. Invite people from your network (colleagues, clients, partners) to speak. Work closely with 10gen. Use and communicate through other social media. Provide snacks and cold drinks. Network and enjoy meeting great people! Aside from your work and MongoDB, tell me about something you are passionate about? We love FC Bayern MÃÂ_nchen, good beer, great jokes, all kinds of data (just make it big), parallel processing, electronic gadgets, everything digital… The Munich MongoDB User Group next meets on Oct 15.
