Hi all -

Hope that you had a nice holiday. We have two great meetups coming up.
Please see details and RSVP instructions below. If you have already
RSVPed for the January meetup, please RSVP again. (When trying to edit
the meetup I managed to delete it and lost all the RSVPs! Sorry about
that.)

December 14: Scaling foursquare with MongoDB
RSVP at http://www.meetup...­
Harry Heymann, the Engineering Lead for foursquare, will present on
scaling foursquare with MongoDB. Before joining foursquare, Harry
spent five years at Google where he worked on Google Payments,
Dodgeball and various backend advertising systems. Previously, he held
roles at Microsoft and Intel. Harry has a bachelor's degree in
engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. In addition to pursuing
his obvious interest in mobile technologies, Harry is currently
obsessed with exploring the Scala programming language.

January 11: Sailthru - Next-Generation Email With MongoDB
RSVP at http://www.meetup...­
Presenter: Ian White, CTO & Co-Founder, Sailthru. Sailthru started out
as a MySQL-powered transactional-mail service. Moving entirely to
MongoDB has allowed us to build complex user profiles to power
behavioral-targeted mass emails and onsite recommendations. How and
why we made the move, and how we use MongoDB today.

Thanks,
Meghan
