For the Future
2021 is a special year for the MongoDB Champions. As the inaugural year of the program, we are working closely with our first group of Champions to further refine and define this program. We want to ensure that we are providing the resources and benefits that our Champions find the most valuable.
Because our community program is quite new, this first cohort was selected based on their contributions to our user groups program, our forums, our events, and past MongoDB programs. Future cohorts will likely be a combination of these factors of contribution to the community and community peer recommendations. More details will be provided in the future.
