10:20am - 11:00am

Building Your First App with MongoDB

Yutaro Mori, Member of Technical Staff, MongoDB

This talk will introduce the philosophy and features of the open source, NoSQL MongoDB. We’ll discuss the benefits of the document-based data model that MongoDB offers by walking through how one can build a simple app to store books. We’ll cover inserting, updating, and querying the database of books.

AWS Japan - Customer Use Case

Introduction on how MongoDB is used on the Amazon Web Services Japan cloud platform. MongoDB is offered through AWS Marketplace.

11:10am - 11:50am

Schema Design

Duraid Madina, Technical Services Engineer, MongoDB

MongoDB’s basic unit of storage is a document. Documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures, meaning that we have several viable alternatives to the normalised, relational model. In this talk, we’ll discuss the tradeoff of various data modelling strategies in MongoDB using a library as a sample application. You will learn how to work with documents, evolve your schema, and common schema design patterns.

TBC - Customer Use Case

12:00pm - 1:00pm

Lunch Break

1:10pm - 1:50pm

Replication & Replica Sets

Ian Daniel, Technical Services Manager APAC, MongoDB

MongoDB supports replication for failover and redundancy. In this session we will introduce the basic concepts around replica sets, which provide automated failover and recovery of nodes. We'll show you how to set up, configure, and initiate a replica set, and methods for using replication to scale reads. We'll also discuss proper architecture for durability.

Insight Technology - Customer Use Case

Database oriented System Integrator. Majority of customers are SME, Enterprises with large database clusters. Recognising MongoDB as a leading NoSQL database, and seeing a growth in market demand.

2:00pm - 2:40pm


Richard Kreuter, Consulting Manager, MongoDB

Sharding allows you to distribute load across multiple servers and keep your data balanced across those servers. This session will review MongoDB’s sharding support, including an architectural overview, design principles, and automation.


David Hows, Technical Services Engineer, MongoDB

MongoDB Enterprise includes Kerberos support for integration into existing enterprise security systems, as well as role-based privileges to provide more granular security for your cluster. This session will introduce you to the security features available in MongoDB.

2:50pm - 3:30pm

Indexing & Query Optimization

David Hows, Technical Services Engineer, MongoDB

MongoDB supports a wide range of indexing options to enable fast querying of your data. In this talk we’ll cover how indexing works, the various indexing options, and cover use cases where each might be useful.

Performance Tuning and Monitoring using MMS

Stephen Steneker, Community Support Manager, MongoDB

MongoDB Monitoring Service (MMS) is a free cloud-based service provided for monitoring MongoDB deployments in real time. MMS ensures that you have visibility into the right metrics to manage and optimise applications during development and in production. In this talk, you'll learn how to leverage MMS charts, custom dashboards, alerting and other features to track the performance of your system.

3:30pm - 3:50pm

Coffee Break

3:50pm - 4:30pm

Data Processing and Aggregation Options

Stephen Steneker, Community Support Manager, MongoDB

MongoDB scales easily to store mass volumes of data. However, when it comes to making sense of it all what options do you have? In this talk, we'll take a look at 3 different ways of aggregating your data with MongoDB, and determine the reasons why you might choose one way over another. No matter what your big data needs are, you will find out how MongoDB is evolving to help make sense of your data.

NRI - Customer Use Case

4:40pm - 5:20pm

Data Modelling Examples from the Real World

Matias Cascallares, Consulting Engineer, MongoDB

In this session, we'll examine schema design insights and trade-offs using real world examples. We'll look at three example applications: building an email inbox, selecting a shard key for a large scale web application, and using MongoDB to store user profiles. From these examples you should leave the session with an idea of the advantages and disadvantages of various approaches to modelling your data in MongoDB. Attendees should be well versed in basic schema design and familiar with concepts of basic schema design. No beginner topics will be covered in this session.
