PTCH and MongoDB 2.2
This month we'll have an update on what's new in the 2.2 release and a look into an interesting new mobile, social consumer app being developed by PTCH, a DreamWorks Animation-backed startup.
Richard Buckingham and Hans Ku from PTCH, a DreamWorks Animation-backed startup, will discuss the development of their new mobile, social app built entirely on MongoDB. For more details you'll have to come yourself...
Antoine Girbal, Solutions Architect at 10gen will give an overview of MongoDB 2.2 release, featuring the aggregation framework, TTL collections, tag aware sharding and more.
If you're interested in giving a lightning talk, please email francesca [at] 10gen.com!

Fellow data lovers -- Tim Chklovski, chief scientist & founding engineer, Eva Ho, an ex-Googler, along with Bill Michels, former GM of Yahoo BOSS, have joined him in this ambitious project.
Factual is in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall on the east side. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.
We recommend you park at the mall. You get 3 hours free and our building is a short easy walk: Exit from the mall parking garage up to ground level, head east, pass the Lens Crafters, and you'll be able to enter the west side of 1801. Then just hit the elevators to go up to floor 14, and Factual is in Suite 1450.
