Big congrats to the folks behind the Dallas MUG. They celebrated the one-year anniversary of their meetup. They even brought a cake!

MongoDB Principal Developer Advocate @Karen_Huaulme spoke about adding AI and machine learning to your data application.

Confluent’s Britton LaRoche spoke about data migration practices to keep your data in sync while you move from Oracle to MongoDB.

If you caught a recent episode of the AWS Big Dev Theory Podcast, you might’ve seen a familiar face: MongoDB Community Champion @Nuri_Halperin, who was a guest on the live stream. Nuri discussed data modeling’s importance for developers and key patterns like one-to-one and one-to-few relationships while walking viewers through a live game demo.

Check out the replay! And don’t forget to check out the chat, as well. It has some awesome questions, comments, and links.

Additional thanks to our own @Michael_Lynn, who moderated.

Community Champion and Beanie creator @Roman_Right was a guest on the Talk Python to Me Podcast where he discussed migrating to Pydantic 2.0 for Beanie.
