TechCrunch Disrupt finalist Weotta uses MongoDB

Join us at thee new 10gen CA office for a User Group meetup and special office opening celebration!

TechCrunch Disrupt finalist Weotta uses MongoDB

Weotta does for places & events what Pandora does for artists & songs. MongoDB has enabled Weotta to create a flexible, fast, and simple back-end for the complicated processes they have to do every day. They are in the midst of building smart local data api's for developers to build the next generation of local products, all based on their MongoDB datastore. To showcase the capabilities of Weotta at TechCrunch Disrupt they created the Weotta itinerary generator.  You tell it what you have in mind and it algorithmically generates relevant itineraries in real-time tailored to you and your occasion. Read more at and view the launch at

Weotta was founded by Grant Wernick and Jacob Perkins, who will be speaking about what MongoDB has enabled them to create.

Aggregation Framework Preview

Chris Westin, 10gen

In the upcoming 2.2 release of MongoDB, 10gen is expecting to include the new aggregation framework. Chris, the architect of the aggregation framework, will give a brief talk on how this new features parallels SQL group-by functionality, without having you write custom JavaScript.

    Enjoyed talk but too much time was spent on Weotta's BP & product and not enough on mongoDB and what they did with it.

    The new MongoDB aggregation framework seems quite useful, allowing one to specify pipelined operations like $match, $group, $project, and $sort. It was also interesting to hear about how Weotta uses NLP and MongoDB to generate custom itineraries.

    Thanks to 10gen for organizing the event. I was so impressed with the aggregation framework that I wrote a blog post on it.

    Awesome ambience at 10gen office. All presos were good .. very informative for curious minds. Good food (almost like light dinner for non-veg lovers. sorry veggies -:( )
    projector was blocking the view sometime 3/4 the screen for many of us. Good crowd.

    It was an excellent combination to have Weotta talking about a real world use case and then also have a 10gen engineer talking about the new Aggregation Framework feature.
