We are very fortunate to have Rob Moore presenting this month's meetup. He is the author of the MongoDB Asynchronous Java Driver and was a speaker at Mongo DC 2013. Here is his synopsis for the talk:
MongoDB 2.6 will be one of the most impressive releases of MongoDB to date. The list of new features is impressive as is the list of things that can't be seen. In this talk we will take a whirl-wind tour of what is new in MongoDB 2.6 but instead of just focusing on how you can leverage those capabilities we will also be talking about what was discovered while upgrading the MongoDB Asynchronous Java Driver to support those features.
I am hoping for a lot of audience participation and questions. Come prepared with question on your favorite new (or old) feature and we can discuss how it works and interacts with the driver. To get us started I will have a set of topics I plan to discuss but will come prepared with a stack of backup slides in addition to just a virtual whiteboard. If you have something you want to talk about already then submit a comment to the meeting page. If you need topic ideas then see the release notes for MongoDB 2.6.
Topics I plan to cover (but this list is subject to change based on your input):
* Cursors Everywhere! - What does that really mean?
* Security – Part I: SSL for real
* Security – Part II: Authentication
* Security – Part III: “Field” Level Security
* Wire Protocol – Whats That?
* Geospatial – Things just got a lot better, and a lot more complicated.
