Get Ready for MongoDC

MongoDC is happening on June 26 at the Wooly Mammoth Theatre in Washington DC. At MongoDC many attendees are just learning about or evaluating MongoDB to see if it is the right fit for their use case, while others are in development or in production and are looking for a little more depth. A lot of your are also interested in best practices to optimize your use of MongoDB.
