Building your first app with MongoDB and Java

6:00 - 6:50 Networking & Light Dinner (Thanks Google!)

6:50 - 7:00 Visualising GC by Ben Evans, London Java Community

7:00 - 7:05 How Not to Measure Latency by Gil Tene, Azul Systems

7:05 - 7:15 Announcements

7:15 - 8:30 mongoDB Talk by Bryan Reinero, 10Gen

8:30 - 8:45 Q&A


This talk will introduce how to build your first Java application with MongoDB by walking you through a simple location based application. The talk will cover the basics of MongoDB's document model, query language, aggregation framework and deployment architecture. New features, fixes and improvements in the latest release will also be covered, including an overview of the new MongoClient object, which adds in journaling by default. At the end of this talk, you should feel ready to get started with MongoDB and play with it in other JVM languages.

Bryan Reinero is a consulting engineer at 10Gen where he also spent some time working on the MongoDB Java Driver. Bryan has also worked Software Engineering Manager at Valueclick, leading the design and development of large scale online marketing applications for advertising, retargeting, real-time bidding and campaign optimization. Earlier Bryan developed data analysis and signal processing software at NASA Ames Research Center.

    It was a good talk. I appreciate the lecture didn't go through the API but focused on the basic concerns of mongodb.

    Thanks to Van for organizing the meetup, and for letting me announce a job opening at my startup Alohar Mobile. I am looking for a Java engineer to join our team. We're building a platform to enable Predictive Siri-type apps. Our reference app, Placeme, has received great reviews in TechCrunch, Scoble's blog, Gigaom, Forbes, and WSJ. My cofounder built Google's "Blue Dot" location service, which is used by many mobile apps. We have funding from Tim Draper & David Cheriton (first investor in Google). If anyone is interested, here's a link to the job announcement:

      can slides be posted?

    • Van R.

      Will ask presenters, we are getting some video recorded, but, it was a surprise volunteer and no good setup for audio recording. So, we will see if it is usable or not.

    As active EG Member of the Java Money and Currency API (JSR 354) I would love to know, if this MongoDB issue about decimal number precision should be fixed any time soon?

    When I exported this event to Yahoo Calendar, it became 2 AM. Is that a meetup problem?

    January 5, 2013

    • Scott D.

      Google calendar imported okay ... possibly your Yahoo calendar misinterpreted the time zone (or where you are) ?

      Unclear, but, doors open at 6pm US Pacific time. =)
