- 7pm: "NoSQL, Distributed Databases and MongoDB" presentation from Bryan Reinero, 10gen developer (visiting from Palo Alto)
- Q & A session
Should be a great opportunity to meet other MongoDB users as well as some of the new 10gen Australia support team ;-).
Bryan Reinero (10gen): NoSQL, Distributed Databases and MongoDB
The arrival of non-relational, distributed databases are changing the way we think about and design our data tiers. MongoDB is an open source, document-oriented database, capable of large scale, high availability data access and failure recovery. MongoDB's non-relational data model offers many advantages, including greater agility through flexible schemas and easier horizontal scalability. We'll explore the benefits and challenges of NoSQL data stores with examples in MongoDB, and discuss strategies for data consistency, query performance and infrastructure.
MongoDB Q & A
Group discussion on MongoDB features and experiences.
