What's So Great About: MongoDB

What's So Great About... MONGODB

This topic is part of our ongoing, "What's so great about" series.  The presentation requires no prior knowledge of the topic, but it is primarily targeted to developers with coding skills.  However, we do welcome startup founders and business people who want to find out more about the topic and gauge developer interest.  By the way, recruiters and business people are always given a chance to introduce themselves at the start of our meetings.

Nuri Halperin will be presenting, and TrueBridge Resources will be providing food & bevs - thanks!  RSVP ASAP to be counted in the food order!

"MongoDB"  -  I ran into Nuri at the IMVU event and he told me he had been working with MongoDB and was very, very happy with its advantages of a straight relational database.  Unlike an RDB, MongoDB is an object database, so there is much, much less data access coding populating objects and then saving object data back to the db.  It also scales really well.  I played devil's advocate taking the part of SQL Server, but Nuri convinced me that MongoDB is well worth taking a serious look at.  So I invited him to speak at our January meeting. 

Nuri has presented before at LADUG and his talks have been very well attended and well received, so RSVP early.  He is thorough and hits right at the points developers and architects care about most.  Nuri gives a great overall coverage of a topic but can also handle deep technical dives no problem.  

FYI, our sponsor, TrueBridge Resources, is a new breed of technical recruiter - I really like the way they're trying to change the way the process works - if you're looking for work bring your resume - they also book contracts so freelancers bring your resume as well.  TrueBridge has told me they intend to outdo the usual pizza and coke, so come on time and don't eat first!


Detailed directions:  BlankSpaces is on the west (ocean) side of 2nd Street in Santa Monica, just north of Santa Monica Blvd.  Your best bet is to park in a Santa Monica Parking structure or a commercial lot.  If you park at a meter or find a free spot, be sure to check the signs out carefully so you don't get ticketed.

    I had seen the 10Gen presentation on MongoDB and it was mainly about internals, but tonights presentation showed MongoDB in use and really put it (and NoSQL) in perspective. I went home and install MongoDB and have been playing with it, looking forward to trying it in a project.
