MongoDB 101 and Gaming Mombasa

Check out what happened

About this event

MongoDB Community will be in Mombasa exploring MongoDB technology basics, cloud technology and the impact it has on building games.

One of the very interesting developments in tech is in Gaming . And with the evolution of the Internet, and with more capable devices and technology, comes the advent of online gaming. One of the things MongoDB does very well is store unstructured data, which is ideal for Games and Gaming Backends. We shall explore this concept in brief.

The NoSQL and Document Storage for MongoDB allows very high flexibility when it comes with storing, retrieving and analysing highly unstructured datasets - which also makes it an ideal technology in the development of Games. In this series we will examine the role MongoDB can play as a backend server in the ever evolving world of Games.
