7:00pm -7:15pm Welcome and Introduction
7:15pm -7:45pm Schema Design
Chad Tindel, Solution Architect, 10gen
MongoDB’s basic unit of storage is a document. Documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures, meaning that we have several viable alternatives to the normalized, relational model. In this talk, we’ll discuss the tradeoff of various data modeling strategies in MongoDB using a library as a sample application. You will learn how to work with documents, evolve your schema, and common schema design patterns.
7:45pm -8:15pm Data Processing and Aggregation Options
Mike O'Brien, Software Engineer, 10gen
MongoDB scales easily to store mass volumes of data. However, when it comes to making sense of it all what options do you have? In this talk, we'll take a look at 3 different ways of aggregating your data with MongoDB, and determine the reasons why you might choose one way over another. No matter what your big data needs are, you will find out how MongoDB the big data store is evolving to help make sense of your data.
8:15pm -8:45pm MongoDB at Giant Eagle
