MongoDB: An Introduction
Software Engineer, 10gen
Sridhar Nanjundeswaran from 10gen will be joining us for our July meetup. His talk will cover an introduction to MongoDB, as well as use cases and comparisons with SQL and other NoSQL solutions.
MongoDB is a scalable, high-performance, open source, document-oriented database, which has many high profile success stories, including Foursquare, craigslist, and Intuit.
Our friends at factual have been gracious enough to host again, so if Century City is at all convenient, come socialize and learn about MongoDB!
Directions and Parking
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.
I recommend you park at the mall. You get 3 hours free at the mall, 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 all the way up to floor 14, and we're in Suite 1450.
In a pinch, if you park in the parking garage for Gateway West, I may be able to score you parking validation. However, I cannot promise it and therefore prefer you use the mall parking.
