Thanasis Efthymiou "wanted to work with computers" since the childhood days he couldn't afford (and never got) an 8088. He enjoyed four years developing telecom SW in Siemens, and another two years of QA in banking and mobile marketing applications. Since 2009 he is a Service Delivery Manager in Upstream and Persado, launching more promos than he can remember around the globe. His every day struggle is pursuing operational excellence and that's why he prefers automating tasks using various programming languages. When his queries won't run, he prefers cycling.

    Very nice meetup with very nice and interesting people. It looks like many of them had something to say and it would be nice to share some of their experience with all the rest. Idealy, we should have new members talking each time and expand to less strict issues like 'best practices while working with any database' , 'regular expressions usage' and things like that. Maybe we can also schedule a 15 minutes brainstorming in the middle of each meetup with more abstract ideas and free conversation related to mongo, projects (if they're not confidential :P ), problems, hidden features and things like that. Thanks again!

    Content-wise it was rather lackluster. However, compared to other meetups I enjoyed the audience engagement and overall atmosphere. I find this important when building/maintaining an active community through meetups - content interest is always subjective.
