18:45 MongoDB basics by Thanasis Efthymiou (45')
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.
