MongoUK: Learn directly from the developers building MongoDB and production users at SAP, Telefonica, and more

On 19 Sept, come join the third MongoDB conference in London. We are again partnering with Skills Matter, hosts of MongoDB training and the London MongoDB User Group. Given the interest in our last MongoUK event, we’ve expanded the conference to four tracks at a larger venue to accommodate more attendees, more advanced sessions, and more community presentations.

MongoUK will be a full day, multi-track conference dedicated to MongoDB, with sessions from both 10gen engineers and production users of MongoDB. MongoDB creator and 10gen CTO Eliot Horowitz will lead several sessions on advanced topics, including journaling and the storage engine, schema design at scale, and the project roadmap. MongoDB engineers will also be leading white board sessions throughout the day to answer your tough questions about MongoDB’s architecture and internals.

Over the past year or so, we’ve seen greater adoption of MongoDB among European companies. MongoUK will highlight several of the more interesting deployments and community contributions. Here are some of the key sessions:

  • SAP will introduce their Java Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) Offering, for which MongoDB was selected as the core content management component
  • The research and development group at Telefonica will present on data intensive processing and storage using MongoDB
  • The Guardian has been using MongoDB in production for five months now and will discuss the good and bad choices that they made in their deployment
  • The National Archives, who just released a public API for 11 million records, will talk about migrating from SQL Server to MongoDB
  • Christian Kvalheim of XING will introduce the node.js driver for MongoDB, a community project for which he is the primary developer
  • London startup UberVU will present their application, which is a large-scale, sharded deployment of MongoDB on AWS
After the conference, be sure to stick around for the Great MongoUK Sharded Pub Crawl. We’ll visit five traditional pubs, where you can meet the founders and engineers behind MongoDB. Registration for the conference includes admission to the pub crawl. If you can’t make the conference, you can sign up to attend the pub crawl only for free.

Special thanks to our sponsors, VMware Cloud Foundry, Server Density, and Skills Matter, as well as our community partners, the London and Bristol MongoDB User Groups.
