  • The Convergence of Cloud, Mobile and Social (Rackspace/ObjectRocket) - Alan Perkins, APAC CTO for Rackspace

The convergence of cloud, mobile and social is changing the way we are consuming technology, in effect personalising big data and creating communities of like-minded individuals that can share and leverage that data to enhance their own experiences. Join us at the next Sydney MUG to hear from Rackspace about the latest innovator to do that – an iconic Australian brand. By leveraging the very best technologies in Rackspace’s new service offering ObjectRocket, MongoDB, and Rackspace's Cloud, they will deliver to the market a first of its kind technology.

  • Q & A / Ask the Experts

Open discussion on any relevant questions you might have related to MongoDB or tonight's talk.

    FYI, the tools I demo'd were RoboMongo ( and JSON Studio (

    For other interesting tools see: and a quick roundup from one of our earlier meetups:

      A few follow-up points for JSON Studio questions:
      - there is extra profiling/logging data available (I hadn't worked out how to view that yet!):­
      - it is designed to also be used as a data access layer via HTTP requests:­

      I still haven't discovered all the features of the tool suite yet :). There are some UI quirks, but it seems a very promising addition for your MongoDB toolbox.

      Thanks for coming Deshan! Note: for those who don't know, Deshan started a MongoDB User Group in Colombo, Sri Lanka before he relocated to Sydney this year:­.

    Really great - case studies are always really good to hear. Both from a technical but also a commercial perspective

      The group is always keen for more tech talks :). If anyone else would like to volunteer to share their MongoDB story/demo/experience, please get in touch with me. Open to talk proposals of any length (i.e. from 5-10 minute lightning talks and upward!).

    If I may, I'd like to share an app I built with a mongoDB backend. Witsical is designed to publish a 4 question survey, tied to a simple handle (aka a wittle). It's great to get a quick feedback from an audience or get the pulse of a team. I created a "mongodb" handle and 4 questions about the meetup. Here is the link to answer the questions:

    You can also download the iPhone and Android app and simply type "mongodb" to access and answer the questions. I built this app in less than two days. What I really like about MongoDB is that the schema is driven by the code, and not the other way around like it is the case in the SQL world.

    Hey Stennie, how about an overview of the new features in MongoDB 2.6 ....

    2 · April 9, 2014

    • Stennie

      We'll definitely being doing a talk on "What's new in MongoDB 2.6" as well as a preview of the upcoming "MMS Automation" at a future MUG. Not sure if that will be this month or next yet, as we also have some other volunteers for talks. I'll be updating the agenda & announcing once our talks are confirmed :).

      FYI, MongoDB 2.6 + MMS Automation will be covered in the May meetup .. so if you want to RSVP early:­ ;-).
