The October MongoDB User Group meeting will be part of the DataWeek activities and co-located with Strata Conf!
Now, How Do I Report and Analyze Against MongoDB?
James Dixon, Pentaho
MongoDB presents many benefits and holds great promise but it’s ultimate success will be based on mass adoption. This requires a whole product approach where data management and business analytic professionals that are accustomed to working with relational sources can just as easily work with MongoDB. In this session, Pentaho will present examples illustrating how one graphical design tool can be used for both environments with no coding involved.
Exploring public datasets and APIs with MongoDB and Analytica
Nosh Petigara, Analytica
With its JSON-based data model, MongoDB is the ideal database for storing and analyzing data from public APIs. In this session, we'll use a few different examples to show how one can import data from public APIs directly into MongoDB using tools built into MongoDB or simple command line scripts. Next, using some examples from twitter, foursquare, and the NYTimes APIs, we will go through how you can explore, analyze, and visualize these datasets to extract useful (and often surprising!) conclusions. For this session we'll be using MongoDB's aggregation framework as well as Analytica, a new tool for analyzing and reporting on data in MongoDB.
