Overview of Sharding Features in MongoDB 2.4

MongoDB 2.4 is out! Come for an overview of changes and new features.

Jeff Yemin will show you all the new features in MongoDB 2.4

Kelly Stirman will give an overview of Sharding in MongoDB with particular focus on the new Hash-based sharding feature in MongoDB 2.4.

Sabin Thomas from Rakuten Loyalty will give us a brief overview of their use of MongoDB.


It's a bit tricky to find Rakuten, so here's how:

Rakuten's office is in the South Station building. Facing the main entrance to South Station, head to the left side of the building. Enter the building on the side lobby underneath the number "2" sign hanging over the entrance. If there isn't someone to greet you and let you in at the door, dial the 5-digit code "52923" on the keypad to dial reception. Take either elevator to the 4th floor.

We will try to put up signs and keep someone posted at the entrance to make things easier.

    I am truly sorry that you weren't able to make it in. We have been in this new space for a very short time and are still working out all the bugs with our entry system. This feedback is helpful as we will need to find a way to ensure this type of thing doesn't happen again. Thanks for letting me know!

    I came late @7.00pm due to traffic. I dialed the number a couple of times and no one was there to answer from Rakuten. Hopefully, it will be better next time..

    Both new features of Hash-based sharding and text searching sound very interesting to me.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
