6:30pm - 7:00pm - Networking

7:00pm - 7:15pm - Welcome and Introduction

7:15pm - 7:45pm - Schema Design

Gary Murakami, Ruby Evangelist / Engineer, 10gen

MongoDB’s basic unit of storage is a document. Documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures, meaning that we have several viable alternatives to the normalized, relational model. In this talk, we’ll discuss the tradeoff of various data modeling strategies in MongoDB using a library as a sample application. You will learn how to work with documents, evolve your schema, and common schema design patterns.

7:45pm - 8:15pm - Common MongoDB Use Cases

Chad Tindel, Solution Architect, 10gen

MongoDB works differently than other databases. It's document data model, range based partitioning, and strong consistency model are well suited to some problems, and less well suited to others. We will go through real world use cases of MongoDB that take advantage of these unique features. We'll cover specific customers using MongoDB, how they implemented their solution and how you can build similar solutions for your own organization.

8:15pm - 8:45pm - TBA

    This was a very informative talk. It definitely increased my interest in NoSQL databases in general and MongoDB in particular.
