MongoDB and Node.JS - December FCIP Meetup

  • Dec 6, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Nathan White who has worked with and will be talking with us about MongoDB and Node.JS.

MongoDB is a scalable, high-performance, open source NoSQL database. MongoDB tries to find the sweet spot in terms of scalability & performance while providing a featured rich toolset traditionally found only in RDBM systems.

Node.js is a platform build on Google Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

Nathan will be talking about using MongoDB with Node.JS


- Why MongoDB?
- The world is not flat. (Solving problems with objects not tables)
- Basic MongoDB setup & administration
- Why Node.js?
- Event based architecture. (Thinking asynchronously)
- Intro to Mongoose: A ODM for managing and modeling MongoDB in Node.JS
- Why model a schema-less DB?
- Solving real world problems (Live Coding)
- Questions & Answers.

There will be a MongoDB book giveaway at the end of the talk. (along with plenty of stickers).

RSVP Today!
And join us at Coopersmiths after the Meetup for a beverage and continued conversation. All are invited.

    I wanted to thank Nathan for his presentation last Thursday.

    I felt so inspired that I used Node.JS to create a simple web server to solve a problem that I was working on.

    I am responsible for a distributed system of computers that is managed from a central server. Node.JS gives me a simple way to have each remote give up data via http requests. Now I can manage all the remote machines easily from a central server.

    Great stuff. Made me wish MongoDB and NodeJS were around when we started our project. Bummed to have to leave early :(

  • David E.

    Great information and exposure to Node and Mongo.

    Great stuff. I'm constantly amazed at how diverse the software field is. I love to see how others architect applications in different, creative, cool ways. Thanks Nathan!

    Thanks for the excellent talk on MongoDB and Node.JS. It gave me a lot of good ideas to follow up on.

    Thanks to Nathan for the great presentation. I was excited to see and learn about NodeJS. I have 8 tabs open now trying to read up on all the various new buzz words thrown out!

    Great introduction to MongoDB and NodeJS

    Great presentation. Got me excited about MongoDB. (Was already excited about for Node.js, but got good info about it, too.)

    Really excited to be presenting in my home town. Look forward to meeting all of you.

    I know it is a trek for most, but we are doing a "Introduction to Riak" talk tomorrow at a Boulder meetup:

    October 24, 2012

  • Ron Z.

    Who in the group is experienced with MongoDB and would like to give a presentation on it? I'm looking for a volunteer.

    I like Jared's suggestion of him doing a talk on Riak in the same session to compare and contrast.

    October 22, 2012

  • Dr. Neal K.

    I've heard good things about MongoDB and want to learn more.

    October 20, 2012

  • Daniel W.

    I second this. I'd love to get a better understanding of the advantages/disadvantages of a document database. How Mongo compares to alternatives such as Couch. And which scenarios a document database would be best suited for (as opposed to a relational).

    p.s. Meetup needs some way to vote on these ideas.

  • Jared M.

    If someone wants to talk about MongoDB, I would be more than happy to talk about Riak. We could have a friendly comparison of each.
