    Hi everyone.

    Great to see you all last night, and special thanks to Stennie and Jed for joining us from Sydney, and to new MongoDB team member Arj for sourcing the refreshments.

    And a reminder: I have a few vouchers for a free eBook from our group sponsor O'Reilly - drop me an email if you're interested.

    In addition, you can use the code "DSUG" for 50% eBooks and 40% off print books from O'Reilly at any time - see the banner ad in the "Our Sponsors" section :)

    Might I suggest:­

    Next meeting currently slated for August - hope to see you all then.

    Hi Jed, Thank You for great run on Keystone. I tried it and it worked fine until I get stuck with non valid login and from what I can see from users collection I have to logon as [masked] but I can't uncrypt the password. > db.users.find()
    { "isAdmin" : true, "email" : "[masked]", "password" : "$2a$10$YdLiHjCNfU8gdjfKsrASK­eupY6edDgM.4dOHHZqr0pCXMjXwBUZ9."­, "name" : { "first" :
    "Admin", "last" : "User" }, "_id" : ObjectId("537e88fca8f737441ad­50dd3"), "__v" : 0 }

    Any idea about the default admin password ?

    • Mai D.

      It's fixed with password "admin" which is from 0.0.1-admin.js under keystone/updates
