MUG #4: Big Data Week. Merciless MongoDB

Merciless MongoDB

Our first speaker confirmed for April is the awesome Adi Chikara, Product Innovation Lead for Localstars: offering automated advertising for website owners.

Localstars have been using MongoDB as their content delivery system "Merciless". Merciless has been live since 2011, and along the way has moved from PHP to node.js, with the latest alpha release using MongoDB geoSearch for Geo targeting.

Our second presentation of the evening comes from Iάσων "Iason" Μπακογιάννης on "Feature Vector Proximity using MongoDB",the local winner of the recent MongoDB London Hackathon. Iason will be showing how the geo-location capabilities of MongoDB can be used to locate places (restaurants) near a point in space (x,y), but what if we use this built-in feature of MongoDB to find the proximity of a document to other documents existing in multi-dimensional space?

Thanks this month goes out again to our generous venue sponsors: 81 Leonard St a stunning gallery space available for exclusive hire!

Food as you have come to expect is courtesy of the best burritos in London: Poncho No 8. Poncho will be providing their now-famous mini-burritos. Arrive on time to make sure you get yours!

Don't forget: vote on what you would like to hear about at future MUGs here:
