06:30 PM - 07:15 PM: “Unveiling the Power of Mongo Aggregation Framework in Logistics Automation”

Coyote Logistics is a third-party broker that connects thousands of customers (shippers) with qualified carriers (usually truckers) willing to transport the shipper loads. A significant portion of qualified truckers are matched to pre-existing rates based on load route (origin and destination) and other requirements (such as hazmat, oversized load, etc.).

Bart will demonstrate using the Mongo aggregation framework to efficiently automate the process of matching carriers and rates to load requirements. This will include several common aggregation operations, as well as some more advanced and relatively recent ones, such as bitwise filtering (to match multiple Boolean fields in 1 step), $Function, $Facet and $Lookup. Bart will also discuss 3 distinct ways to perform aggregations in C# and show how one of these techniques can be used to dynamically create efficient pipelines on the fly, based on varying requirements.

07:15 PM - 07:30 PM: Bringing AI into your Apps with MongoDB & your relational workloads to MongoDB with confidence.
