DataBase Seminar - May is for Mongo

The May Database Seminar will be on THURSDAY, May 16. We'll be at Engine Yard. Since this group hasn't been big on food, we'll just have some light refreshment once again.

Dan Crosta will talk about MongoDB (from "humongous")  an open source document database, and (according to the MongoDB folks) the leading NoSQL database. Written in C++, MongoDB features: Document-Oriented Storage, JSON-style documents, Full Index Support, Replication & High Availability, Auto-Sharding, Querying, Fast In-Place Updates, Map/Reduce, and GridFS.

"Dan is Lead Developer at Magnetic, an online advertising company based in New York City and Buffalo, where he wrangles over 4 billion online ad auctions per day. Before joining Magnetic, Dan was a member of the Python programming team at 10gen, the MongoDB company, where he worked on the MongoDB Python driver, internal tools and applications, training, consulting, and developer evangelism. In his free time, Dan goes skiing or wonders when it will next be ski season."

Come one! Come all! Please do rsvp.

Looking ahead, Dave Parfitt will be talking about Riak in June. I'm thinking we may take July and August off. We are considering a DBA's view of Object Relational Mapping for a future date. I am thinking about a talk on data modelling. We are also looking for more topics and speakers. Please comment on all of this and offer suggestions. We are also still looking for sponsors.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
