This meetup will be hosted by AKQA. A big thanks to them for hosting our meetup! The capacity is more limited than usual, so please RSVP to reserve your spot.
A member of the development team at AKQA will present about how they use MongoDB. We will also have the following talk from Assaf Arkin:
'MySQL to NoSQL to MongoDB'
"In this presentation I'm going to cover our path from MySQL-only to NoSQL-only architecture, why we chose MongoDB and how we use it successfully in production. I'll talk about the implications of performance, keeping business logic outside the database, client-side joins and aggregates, why we don't need transactions, how/when we use advanced features like map/reduce, and how you scale app/database pairs."
Afterwards we'll head to Steff's at 141 2nd St for drinks (on 10gen!).
