2. Host a White Board Session at the MongoSV Community Forum
This year, MongoSV will have an afternoon dedicated to open whiteboard sessions in the Community Forum. 10gen co-founders Dwight Merriman and Eliot Horowitz will be hosting whiteboard sessions in the community forum, but there will be a number of other white boards and tables for the community to host their own un-sessions at the conference.

With multiple tracks and 40+ sessions, there is a lot to experience at MongoSV.
