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. In this talk, CTO Simon Maynard will discuss hints and tips from two years of running production MongoDB deployments.

Derick's MongoDB and PHP American Road Trip

This was originally posted on Derick Rethans’ personal blog Some time ago, my friend Ligaya Turmelle suggested that I should come and talk at the JaxPHP/JaxWeb , the PHP and web developers usergroup in Jacksonville, Florida. And while I was there, why not visit a few other user groups too? At all the meetups, 10gen (my employer) has kindly provided some swag - and rumours go that I get to buy you guys and girls a drink as well. In the end, after discussing with other web/PHP usergroups in the Southeast of the US, we came to the following schedule: Boca Raton, Florida - SoFloPHP - Tuesday, September 18 The first stop is the South Florida group (SoFloPHP) in Boca Raton. On the evening of the 18th, I will introduce MongoDB for PHP developers: This talk introduces MongoDB for developers who aren’t familiar with it with a detailed introduction of how to work with MongoDB from PHP. The talk will cover the basics from installing the PHP driver and connecting to mongoDB to creating, inserting, querying for, and updating documents. We will also briefly touch on aggregation, geospatial indexes, GridFS and running database commands. I will focus on schema design and indexes, although I will also quickly cover the basics. Orlando, Florida - The Orlando PHP User Group - Wednesday, September 19 After South Florida I will be making a stop at the Orlando PHP User Group . The abstract: This talk introduces MongoDB for developers who aren’t familiar with it through a detailed introduction of how to work with MongoDB from PHP. Derick will cover the basics: from installing the PHP driver and connecting to a MongoDB server to creating, inserting, querying, and updating documents. He’ll also cover some accepted best practices in schema design and indexing. There is also a related MongoDB event in Orlando, on September 6th there is an `evening with MongoDB’ . Jacksonville, Floria - JaxPHP/JaxWeb - Thursday, September 20, JaxPHP/JaxWeb As other user groups are invited as well, I will keep my presentation as language agnostic as possible, and focus on schema design and indexing. Atlanta, Georgia - Atlanta PHP User Group - Friday, September 21 I then leave Florida and head to Atlanta to talk at the Atlanta PHP User Group . In Atlanta, I will give a similar presentation as at the other user groups. Nashville, Tennessee - Nashville PHP User Group - Monday, September 24 In Nashville, I will speak after the weekend at the Nashville PHP User Group . In this location, my talk focusses on: An introductory presentation covering the do’s and don’ts, best practices and design schemas for MongoDB. Holiday! After the five user group appearences, I head to the North West of the USA for some R&R - after three weeks on the road (I speak at PFCongres before traveling to the USA) - I think I will need one! Best of luck to Derick on his travels!

Nominations Open for the MongoDB Masters Program

Last year, 10gen launched the MongoDB Masters program, to encourage the exchange of knowledge and expertise amongst MongoDB community evangelists and open source contributors. After almost nine months working on the program, 10gen will be adding more MongoDB Masters to its roster for the 2013 Calendar year. What does it take to become a MongoDB Master? All of our masters have vastly distinct backgrounds, but two qualities make a MongoDB Master: A Commitment to Open Source MongoDB has a wealth of contributors from the open source community who support the growth of the MongoDB ecosystem. This includes development of MongoDB tools and patches and contribution to the free support forums. A Dedication to Evangelizing MongoDB These include bloggers, speakers, authors, MongoDB User Group (MUG) organizers and supporters who are dedicated to educating the community on MongoDB fundamentals and best practices. Our goal of this program remains the same: to honor the work of our community and foster the exchange of knowledge between and among 10gen and community leaders. MongoDB Masters have the opportunity to partake in the MongoDB Masters summit in Santa Clara, held before MongoSV in December, get two free tickets to the MongoDB Day of their choice and participate in workshops and online events with 10gen staff and fellow masters. 10gen is currently taking nominations for our second round of MongoDB Masters until June 15. If you would like to nominate a friend, colleague, or a user you follow on Github, please refer to the nomination page on the 10gen site.
