How to Secure MongoDB Data Access with Views


Sometimes, MongoDB collections contain sensitive information that requires access control.

Every month, all across the globe, we organize, attend, speak at, and sponsor events, meetups, and shindigs to bring the DevRel community together. Here’s what we’ve got cooking:

Our MUG Hyderabad was a great event with all speakers coming from the community. MUG Leader Yashraj Kakkad came up with a fantastic idea to run an interesting networking session, where people were divided into random groups to know each other. We had an open mic discussion at the end to share our experiences with MongoDB. Thank you to our MUG leaders, Jayant Acharya and Archy Gupta. We’re also very grateful for our speakers:

MUG Mexico was also a smashing success! We had a great time rebooting in-person and even raffled tickets to .local Mexico. Thank you to our leader and speaker, Alejandro Mancilla.

Community Champion Kevin Smith hosted a Learn MongoDB Workshop for the dotnet York user group.

We were recently in SoCal for .local, where we demoed a game we’ve been hard at work on: Leafsteroids! All of you played hundreds of sessions — many congrats to the winners.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us at our Toronto Inaugural MUG. Our Community Champion and MUG Leader, Chris Dellaway, did a stellar job, as did speaker and MongoDB employee Alex Bevilacqua.

Don’t forget that on May 31, we’ll be holding an Atlas Search webinar with a live Q&A at the end! Also, there’s a DevPost Google + MongoDB hackathon in progress — be sure to check it out!

Community Enthusiast and MUG Leader Sumanta Mukhopadhyay is leading an exciting virtual session on Why and Where to Use MongoDB. It’s happening tomorrow — mark your calendars!
