Announcing the Winner of the Schema Design Blogging Contest
MongoDB schema design continues to be a hot topic on the user forums, IRC even at conferences. At the end of May, we launched a blogging contest to give the community more real-world examples of MongoDB schema design. We got some great posts and 10gen’s engineers have chosen Ryan McGeary’s post on MongoDB Schema Design at BusyConf which has some great insights how you can build out your data model. Here's a common myth that I've heard before: ...MongoDB design is easy because its schema-less.â€œ I disagree with this. It's true that a thoughtful design will yield a longer term gain in easier development, but it can be tricky to conjure up with such a design…MongoDB's speed and scalability are wins, but for us, it's not as important as the win we get from rapid development. Rapid development comes from the ability to represent richer data models that more closely match the business problems and the patterns of access. Thanks to Ryan and all the other authors who submitted excellent blog posts and stay tuned for the next blogging contest!

MongoDB Community Awards to be Presented at MongoSV
At MongoSV , 10gen will present awards to peer-nominated community members for their contributions to the MongoDB project. Whether they've used MongoDB to build innovative applications, worked to expand and connect the MongoDB user community, or improved the MongoDB codebase, we consider our contributors to be part of the extended MongoDB family. Through November 25th, we're accepting award nominations for the following categories: Innovative Application Award This award recognizes a company or individual who has built an innovative application using MongoDB. In the submission form, tell us what the application does and describe specifically how MongoDB enabled its success. Community Champion Award This award recognizes an individual for their efforts evangelizing and growing the MongoDB community. Nominees should be actively engaged in the MongoDB community through events, social media, the user forum, and/or blogging. Tell us how the nominee has influenced developers and encouraged adoption of MongoDB. Core Contributor Award This award recognizes a community member for significant contribution to the codebase of the MongoDB core server, language drivers, or tools. Contributors to the documentation are also eligible. In the nomination form, explain the contribution and how it has impacted development for other MongoDB users. The 10gen team will select three finalists in each category, all of whom will be invited to MongoSV as our guests. Members of the MongoDB community will be invited to cast their votes from November 27 through December 5, 2011. Nominations are open to anyone in the MongoDB user community, although 10gen team members are not eligible for the award. Finalists for each award will be selected from the pool of nominees by 10gen, but the final vote is up to you—the user community.
