Having postponed our event on mobile-web, we are super-excited to welcome Will Shulman, from MongoLab, who generously offered to fill our August 31st slot and show us how to persist our mobile app data in the cloud using a super-scalable and amazingly developer-friendly MongoDB back-end. Build your next mobile back-end with MongoDB! MongoDB is one of the fastest growing NoSQL databases and an excellent alternative to MySQL as a server-side backing store for mobile applications. MongoDB's JSON-style storage model and mobile-friendly features (like built-in geo-spatial indexing / search) make it a great tool for mobile developers and a great topic for our Android group. Will Shulman, CEO and co-founder of MongoLab will introduce the group to MongoDB, discuss its applicability to mobile apps, and show us how to use MongoLab's cloud-based data service to make off-device data storage a snap. Pizzas/drinks will be sponsored by Imtiaz Hussain from [x]Cube Labs. As before, we'll be giving away books and other swag to the lucky winners.
