We had a fantastic time at the Seville MUG — a job well done by our Developer Advocate @Diego_Freniche, José Luis Franconetti (who spoke about going from zero to production with FastAPI + MongoDB Atlas), and Antonio Llamas from The Bridge (who gave an intro to the MERN stack).

Kudos to @Shane_McAllister, who gave an intro to MongoDB at a user group event in Dublin!
