8:30pm Lightning talks

Norberto Leite (Portugal) Calling the Gods of JS 

A quick talk on how I ended up liking ( not loving ) javascript after starting to work with MongoDB

Henrik Ingo (Finland) Translating losslessly between XML and JSON
You have XML documents and want to store them in a MongoDB database.

John Page (Scotland)TBD

Sam Weaver (England) Many Mistakes Saved - how to keep mongodb backed up
Easy backup and point-in-time restore of your data with MMS - the mongo management service.

Marc Schwering (Germany) The 4th. Industrial Revolution
What a solar panel, a car, a fridge and a process management system has in common.

Massimo Brignoli (Italy) Changing the web development paradigm
In the age A.M. (Ante MongoDB) the web apps development was trying to reduce the time to market fighting against the slowness of the relational schema design. P.M. (Post MongoDB) the paradigm is changed and web companies can adopt the true agile approach of a rapid app development using different flavours of frameworks. Meteor is one of them.

James Tan (England / Singapore) Vagrant + MongoDB

Arthur Viegers (Netherlands) A marriage made in heaven: Node.js and MongoDB
The web has moved from consumption to real-time interaction. Users around the world want to interact with each other, and they want to do it in real time. What's more, this interaction needs to happen at massive scale, supporting hundreds, thousands, even millions of users.

Jon Rangel (England) Faceted Search with MongoDB

Dan Roberts (UK) Eating ticks.
How to consume bucket loads of ticks with MongoDB.

Paul Done (UK) Coming to MongoDB from the Oracle world - Same But Different MongoDB Beginner Level: As a recent new user of MongoDB technology myself, there's a few mental shifts I have had to make, both technical and non-technical, having come from an Oracle-centric world. Hopefully, some of these insights are useful to others, facing a similar situation.

Matt Bates (UK) PracticeMinder: mining open NHS prescription data with MongoDB and friends
The UK NHS provide open access to a number of datasets, including every prescription, presented at the GP practice-level. PracticeMinder was a winning hack at a recent NHS Hackday that exploited this open data and developed web-based visualisations. Developments that will be featured in this talk include time series schema, pre-aggregate number crunching with mongo-hadoop and Elastic Map-Reduce and Aggregation Framework pipelines for real-time analytics for web-based visualisation.

    Really good meetup! The 10 min limit is a really good idea in order to provide as much content as possible in a limited amount of time.
