How we store data in mongoDB? This talk will help to figure out behind the hood and show how mongoDB handles operations like db.collection.insert(doc) or db.collection.remove(doc).

20:30 - "MongoDB Production Deployment Scenarios" by Nuno Barreto

We intend to cover how to decide on number of shards for a collection/database, number of replicas inside a replica set, shared vs non-shared storage and types of storage on a Production scenario.

    Congratulations to MongoDBLX!

    Loved it. About the delayed start (it was a little) maybe in the next ones the organizers can be less flexible and give only a 15 minute tolerance. The talks were adequate to a 6th meetup.

    Hello João, I am not a MongoDB user yet but we are considering it for some projects where we have loads of data collected each second. The topics were well structured for knowing what we have to deal if we start using MongoDB and also to take some ideas if you are already using it, so I don't share your opinion but understand if you expected something different. Cheers.

    Talks got hugely delayed and the topics were a bit unfit for the audience.

      Hi João, this meetup exists about 2 years and we already have done some introductory talks (and I can point to our last meetup em 2013), about the delay this happens too in the best conferences in the world, if you need resources to start in mongodb I'm here to help you, ok, you are always welcome ;) cheers
