Recap: NYC MongoDB User Group Meetup
Earlier this week, the NYC MongoDB User Group met at Buddy Media to learn more about how three different companies were using MongoDB. Trello, an online organization and collaboration app, uses MongoDB alongside Node.js, Redis, and Backbone to run highly-responsive single-page applications, allowing multiple users to share information almost instantly on virtual project boards. You can view the Trello presentation and slides online Michael Lysaght and Oleksii Iepishkin, of SecondMarket, presented their open source tool Mongeez, a tool that helps to deploy data changes in MongoDB automatically without losing consistency with the existing codebase. (Mongeez is available on Github). SecondMarket helps to connect investors with alternative investment opportunities in over forty asset classes. Last but certainly not least, Erik Lubow and Russell Bradberry presented SimpleReach, a realtime analytics tool which uses recommendations to suggest content to online readers. SimpleReach uses Node.js and MongoDB schema design to enable dynamic collection creation and realtime data delivery. Photos from the meetup are available on the MongoDB Flickr page, and video footage from all three presentations can be found online. Not in NYC?
