Mongoose: MongoDB for NodeJS
Nathan White of LearnBoost will be presenting on Mongoose. LearnBoost is a free and amazing gradebook web app that leverages MongoDB for its data storage needs. LearnBoost is the creator of Mongoose, a JavaScript async ORM for MongoDB that is flexible, extensible and simple to use. Check out the LearnBoost blog for more details.

Presentation Overview:


  • Why LearnBoost selected MongoDB.
  • Very brief intro into nodejs.
  • Why we created Mongoose
  • Unique Features
  • Ease of use
  • Live coding sample (build a simple app in literally minutes).

Monitaur
Gerad Suyderhoud will present on Monitaur. Monitaur is instant server monitoring. Set it up in under 30 seconds (seriously, it's that easy), and rest assured your server is staying healthy. Monitaur was built in 48 hours for Rails Rumble. MongoDB bridged the gap between the Rails 3 website and the Node.js metric collection + real-time comet server.

    Dave: I agree with your comments. Its a tough judgement call with releases, especially when it deals with the data layer. As you saw last night we have hundreds of tests already integrated. Now the focus is on the documentation and packaging. This will transpire on or before Dec 1.

    Talk was fun. However, the venue could use a microphone.

    Sorry about engaging in the SSH key discussion. Def would have been better to take it offline.

    Also, mongoose, as Nathan said in his presentation, latest is publicly available, it's not just the master branch on github: https://github.com/learnboost/mongoose/tree/1.0

    Also, Visnu's slides are at: http://public.iwork.com/document/?a=p272158132&d=monitaur.key if anybody is interested.

    Its a great venue and incredibly well organized. One thing perhaps could be communicated to all parties is:
    a. presenters please use most of the slide space and use larger fonts. it makes no sense to hear what presenter can only read.
    b. some attendees come in while video taping the presentation and audience randomly panning and pointing their camera for their own documentary objectives. Its both distracting for us and self serving from person with the camera. We aren't there to be video tapped for random gratification. Unless of course, its organizer or the presenter doing to video.

    There was something of a lag between what is committed and in public view for Mongoose and what was presented - I am not complaining, but I would ask the Mongoose people to let us know when the version presented is accessible by the general public. There were a lot of great features in it and I'd like to give them a try when they are released and documented.

    I would like to remind people that when they have specific concerns that aren't part of the general topic, its best to ask the speaker after the conference about them so as not to stall out the flow of the presentation. I've often found speakers quite willing to address specifics after the talk is given, but public speaking is a lot harder than it looks.

    Very informative - some promising projects in the pipe.

    IMHO, instead of use sponsors for pizza and drink, it was better if there was a radio microphone with a small amplification system. In same cases, it was really impossible to hear (and understand) what people said.
