Matthias Brantner presents "Do More with MongoDB and JSONiq"


Matthias Brantner presents "Do More with MongoDB and JSONiq"

We have invited Matthias Brantner of 28msec to discuss MongoDB and JSONIQ. Followed by a healthy Q and A.


  • 7:00 pm: meet, greet & eat
  • 7:15 pm: intros
  • 7:30 pm: main presentation


Matthias will present JSONiq: the SQL of NoSQL. But this is not your grandma’s SQL. It is a high-level query language that enables NoSQL developers to productively develop and execute complex queries on top of MongoDB. JSONiq supports novel concepts purposely designed for JSON data. However, JSONiq doesn't throw out the baby with the bathwater. It supports complex SQL-like query processing features such as joins, grouping, transformation, full-text, or updates without giving up on scalability.



Matthias Brantner studied Information Systems at the University of Mannheim in Germany from 1999 until 2004.

In 2007, he acquired a PhD from the University of Mannheim, based on his research on "Rewriting Declarative Query Languages". He is the CTO of 28msec Inc and has published a number of papers in academia and in industry

We're in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall on the east side. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.

We recommend you park at the mall. They will charge $1/hr for up to 3 hours and then $1 for every 15 minutes (details). Our building is a short easy walk: Exit from the mall parking garage up to ground level, head east, pass the Lens Crafters, and you'll be able to enter the west side of 1801. Then just hit the elevators to go all the way up to floor 14, and we're in Suite 1450.

In a pinch, if you park in the parking garage for Gateway West, we may be able to score you parking validation. However, we cannot promise it and therefore prefer you use the mall parking. So if you choose this option, please be ready to pay out of pocket.



If you need a ride or can offer a ride, please post a comment underneath this meetup
