Welcome to new and old members!
For our first 2014 meetup, we're in the MongoDB offices in Latin Hall, Golden Lane.
This meetup is going to cover the MongoDB 2.6 release and provide a open questions and answers session with Asya Kamsky ( http://askasya.com / @asya999 (https://twitter.com/asya999)), principal solution architect at MongoDB. Asya will help answer where MongoDB will 'fit' for your application and is an expert in designing plus troubleshooting. There will be two ligthning talks on open-source projects developed within MongoDB, a project on geo-location and the MEAN stack, and a project on learning MongoDB through the console.
These talks will be of interest to novices and to experienced MongoDB veterans.
Note: Please do not arrive any more than 20 minutes earlier to the venue and we will be starting promptly at 18:30 with the pizza!
