November MongoDB User Group

We'll have the team from NYC Health discuss their MongoDB use case and the team from SNAP Interactive to discuss their recent work with MongoDB and Facebook's Real-time API.

  • The DOHMH (NYC Department of Mental Health and Hygiene) uses MongoDB for their internal document management system called DocSpace. The team will discuss

-the system

-how they came to adopt MongoDB

-migrating from a relational DB to a document-oriented one

-the advantages and disadvantages we’ve encountered and how we have managed them

-Next steps with MongoDB

  • SNAP Interactive will discuss how they use MongoDB to scale Facebook's Real-time endpoint. In building AreYouInterested.com, SNAP Interactive wanted to instantly update people's profiles based on users' individual "likes". In this talk, Mike and Justin from SNAP Interactive will go through how they configured MongoDB to handle thousands of user profile updates.
  • Brett Didonato will be presenting Giftivo, a tool that generates gift suggestions for friends and family based on their interests. He'll showcase how they're using MongoDB.
  • Aidan Feldman will be showing off Mongoid Locker, the gem for super-simple queuing with MongoDB and Ruby
