Hi all,

On September 15th we will host another MongoDB User Group Meetup. This meeting will include two speaker sessions, networking time and refreshments. Please see the full agenda below.


19:15 - 19:45
Speaker Session 1 - Big Data solutions: from complexity to simplicity
Samuel Cozannet, Canonical

Big data solutions should not mean long and complex setups and operations. In this talk we'll look at Juju. Juju is a language that makes it easy to model complex Big Data stacks in an abstract manner and then deploy, and integrate them at scale on any public or private cloud.

Samuel Cozannet is a simplicity technology enthusiast. A solution-oriented, get-things-done professional. He has a track record in product and program management, and a passion for innovation. He believes technology can make the world a better place. Most of his time and energy is spent driving the adoption of IoT and Big Data technologies in companies and enterprises of all sizes and industries. Follow Samuel on Twitter (@SaMnCo_23).

19:45 - 20:15
2nd talk - MongoDB 3.2 feature “Document Validation"

One of the most attractive things about MongoDB is its flexible data model, relieving developers from having to spend months creating a sophisticated data schema at the start of the project and ops from spending weeks rolling out incremental schema changes across thousands of production servers. However, most applications reach a point where they need to impose *some* constraints on what’s stored in a collection (for example, every document must include a user-id) and traditionally that work has all had to be implemented in the application.
This session takes a deep dive into the MongoDB 3.2 feature “Document Validation” which lets you move much of the schema checking down into the database. Learn what it does (and what it doesn’t) and how to make use of it.

Andrew is a Principal Product Manager working for MongoDB. He joined at the start of this summer from Oracle where he’d spent 6+ years in product management, focussed on High Availability. Andrew is based near London and so hopes to make regular appearances at the London MUG. He can be contacted @andrewmorgan and over the coming months his blog ( ( should start featuring more MongoDB content.
