The team at Google has kindly offered to host us for the evening at their offices in the Wynyard quarter. Complimentary drinks and snacks as well as some SWAG will be available, proudly sponsored by the team at MongoDB.

Lance Wolters (linkedin) - Lance is a Principal Engineer at Figured, a dynamic farm financial reporting and performance insights SaaS platform. In this talk, he will share how Figured leverages the power of MongoDB aggregation pipelines to generate reports for over 30,000 farms, from a collection containing around 700 million documents. Lance will showcase the challenges his team faced and how they overcame them using MongoDB’s robust and flexible aggregation framework. If you’re interested in learning how MongoDB can help manage and process large datasets efficiently, you won’t want to miss Lance’s presentation.
