Feb 2010 LA WEB DEV meetup

LAWEBDEV,

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight. Here are our speakers for the evening:

1) Alex Sharp
Introducing MongoDB
MongoDB is a new schema-less, document-oriented blazing-fast database engine
written in C++ that is easy to setup and start using today. We'll cover the main features of
MongoDB, some of the differences in concepts and philosophy from traditional relational
databases, and some common use cases. In addition, we'll demonstrate how easy it is
to install and start using.

2) Ron Evans
Going Mobile
From iPad to Android, the mobile space is heating up by the day. But
the hardware and the OS are not the only playing fields with a lot of
action. We'll review all the current platforms, and learn about some
of the open source multiplatform mobile frameworks that are
revolutionizing mobile applications development.

2) Ari Lerner
Forget everything you know about application deployment
Beehive takes a fresh look at application deployment, scaling and virtualization. It is an open-source application deployment framework whose goal is to provide a stable, scalable, fault-tolerant application in an unstable environment. Written in Erlang and Ruby, Beehive provides a distributed router that sits in front of a mesh of client instances and makes it easy to support continuous deployment. Tonight, we'll cover the 5 questions: why, how, when, who and most definitely what, as well as get into the technology that makes it work.

More to come. Will Jessup

    The meetup was great for those that were looking for hard core programmers. The problems were with the presentations. The mac laptop went offline for a while. Then when it got back online, the battery gave out. The gentlemen were not able to properly present their ideas. This was awful for the presenters that had valuable information for those that were willing to participate.

    Nice group of people in a good venue with excellent sponsor support. However, the presentations were a little lacking in objectivity and substance. I didn't really believe that the people up there were qualified to talk about what they were talking about. Regardless, kudos for a successful event.

    Great info, venue, and presentations. It's always a worthwhile event. I've been reading about Mongo lately and working with PhoneGap for the last few months. Great to see both promoted.

    If any of you can develop iPhone apps or iphone-friendly web apps, I have one 90% done, but it's difficult, books hotel rooms and XML interfacings and more to come. Not for a first timer, two overseas companies have already stolen tons of money trying to learn on my dime. Time to go local. If you are qualified and interested, I'd like to meet you at this event. Please email in advance: brad at bradkauffman.com ... Thanks!
