The Sophia-Antipolis MongoDB User Group starts 2013 with a joint meeting with the Riviera Scala Clojure group, meeting at Auditorium Mistral, Amadeus.
Ross Lawley from 10Gen, the company who takes care of MongoDB will introduce us to MongoDB and how to work with it in Scala.
Some of you who were in Riviera Dev 2011 would never forget Bodil Stokke, one of the star speaker of the conference. And guess what! She's back, this time with Clojure Script presentation.
MONGODB , SCALA and JVM LANGUAGES
MongoDB is a scalable and high performance NoSQL database. As a document-oriented database, MongoDB provides a unique advantage over the traditional SQL and other NoSQL databases - document structures enable more agile development, and MongoDB has been designed with scalability built in. Ross Lawley, from 10Gen -- the MongoDB company -- will introduce us to MongoDB in more detail, in particular integration with JVM languages like Scala and Java. The presentation will provide: an overview to general features of MongoDB, such as the structure of the data and how to manipulate it; some basics around the high availability and scalability features; and, of course, how to develop against the database from Java, Scala and the rich JVM ecosystem
Today, I will start with very quick overview of Clojure and what makes it different with ClojureScript. Then, let's join pre-existing Node infrastructure to client-side ClojureScript tools and see if we can build a fully functional 100% CLJS web application.
Bodil is a developer, frequent speaker and occasional teacher of web technology and anything that favours s-expressions. Her current obsession is development workflow, and her current experiment to that end is the Catnip editor for Clojure. She lives in Oslo, Norway in a wary relationship with her pet Roomba.
