Get Ready for MongoDB Berlin

With Christmas and New Year celebrations long gone, and the cold weather dragging on, we all need a little something to look forward until the sunshine returns. Thankfully, MongoDB Berlin is right around the corner - with more than 300 users and contributors attending, and over 20 sessions taking place thanks to 10gen engineers and MongoDB users, you'll have lots to look forward to at the event on February 26th 2013.

On The Agenda

This year's MongoDB Berlin conference offers over 20 unique sessions, led by a great mix of 10gen engineers and experienced MongoDB Users from the community. Some highlights to look out for include:

  • Building Your First App with MongoDB by Thomas RÃÂ_ckstieß, Technical Support Engineer, 10gen. A great introduction to the philosophy and features of the open source, NoSQL MongoDB.
  • MongoDB for Official Documents in Bavaria by Christian Brensing, Senior Developer, State of Bavaria. Hear about the improvements we have achieved with the migration of the Bavarian Government's document template application to MongoDB, problems we had to solve underway and unit testing of the persistence layer in order to keep our quality level.
  • Chat in Space with Benjamin Paillereau, Product Manager, eXo Platform. See how easy and efficient it is to use MongoDB for a Chat application.
  • MongoDB for Java Developers: Schema Evolution and Schema Maintenance by Timmo Gierke, Head Architect, Hypoport AG. In his talk, Timmo will present solutions for (Java) Developers to get their data into MongoDB and make data migration explicit, straight-forward and testable.
  • Upload files to MongoDB GridFS with Symfony2 and combine them with ORM entities by Dennis Coorn, with Applicatie ontwikkelaar, IPPZ B.V. Learn how you can save an uploaded file directly to GridFS with Symfony2, and how you can combine the ODM document seamlessly with an ORM entity.

A full overview of talks and sessions at MongoDB Berlin is available on our events page.


We are offering two in-depth, hands-on MongoDB workshops a day before MongoDB Berlin. These workshops are perfect for jump-starting your knowledge and use of MongoDB. Each session is led by a 10gen engineer and limited to 15 students to ensure each student receives individual attention from a MongoDB expert.

In addition, all workshop attendees are invited to attend the free interactive lab presented by OpenShift during the lunch break. You can find the full workshop schedule here.

New for Berlin in 2013

Ask The Experts: MongoDB Berlin will also include 'Ask The Experts' sessions - 15 minutes, one-on-one, with 10gen engineers to help answer your toughest MongoDB questions.

Choose Your Language: Talks at MongoDB Berlin will be offered in both English and German. Want to know which is which? Look for the (DE) abbreviation after the talk title to identify the presentations auf Deutsch.
