This is a past event

Location image of event venue


Learn how to build powerful backends without application servers using MongoDB Stitch, straight from MongoDB CTO Eliot Horowitz. Stitch is a Backend as a Service that lets developers 1) perform CRUD operations directly against their database with a REST API; 2) declaratively specify field level security on their data, and 3) compose server-side logic and external services with hosted functions.

Four live-coding demonstrations of Stitch in action will get you up to speed. First, Eliot will demonstrate querying and inserting data into Stitch by adding comment capability to a static blog. Second, he’ll demonstrate the power of Stitch's declarative ACL rules by letting commenters and owners edit comments. Third, he’ll show off services integration by letting people comment via SMS, with Twilio. Finally, we’ll put it all together with an IoT powered 2-factor door security system, demonstrating Stitch orchestrating a complex architecture of devices, logic, and services.
