E-Commerce and MongoDB at Backcountry.com
June 01, 2015
Gustavo Leiva, Software Developer & Engineering Manager at Backcountry.com
The talk will describe the results we got by adopting MongoDB in key areas of our business. Backcountry.com is a midsize company in constant evolution looking for growth in a extremely competitive ecosystem. We try to be agile and target fast prototyping and data-based decisions. Our dev stack used to heavily rely on Postgres and Oracle, but in a short period of time we were able to introduce MongoDB in a key set of applications and we've seen positive results. We're less dependent on monolithic applications and we're progressively moving to Microservices. By choosing MongoDB as one of our main technologies, our dev teams became more productive as well as mature. They see beyond relational approaches and explore more options to tackle different problems.
