Mongeez, SimpleReach and Trello at the January MongoDB User Group

Mongeez at SecondMarket - Michael Lysaght VP of Engineering, SecondMarket

Have you ever heard an engineer say, "I don't know why it doesn't work, it works on my machine"?  Have you had to wait for SysOps to run a data change across multiple environments, and realize they forgot to run it somewhere?  Managing your data modifications can be a major headache, especially for larger teams. Automating these changes has improved productivity and deployment consistency at SecondMarket who have open sourced a tool called Mongeez to help resolve this issue. This tool, loosely based on liquibase, automates deployment of mongodb data changes whilst maintaining consistency with your codebase. Michael Lysaght & Oleksii Iepishkin will talk about the problem and their solution.

Schemas for Real Time Analytics with Node.js- Eric Lubow and Russell Bradberry, SimpleReach

SimpleReach powers the Slide, a recommendation powered content discovery technology for websites. Eric Lublow will discuss how SimpleReach builds schemas in MongoDB and Node.js for powerful, real-time data delivery. Topics will include: 

   * Dynamic collection creation    * Updating (Increments over sets)    * Schema    * Next gen schemas for dynamic filters

What's in the Trello- Brett Kiefer, Fog Creek

Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. Brett Kiefer will discuss how Trello uses Node.js,, MongoDB, Redis, and Backbone to create a responsive single-page app.

    It was quite inconsistent:
    - First presentation (Trello) was great, really clear with a real demo (in the browser) and then we got to see some code and really understan how everything worked
    - Second (Mongeez) was quite a failure, I don't think the audience got a good picture of their product
    - Third one (simple reach) was good but too fast. Don't know if he was running out of time, but I found the product interesting. However, he went to fast covering the technical aspects of it

    It was my first meetup with the MongoDB group and overall a good experience. I look forward to the next one. Organization and venue were great!

    Most of Trello's presentation was pretty boring.

    Trello is well implemented. It is interesting to find out WebSocket doesn't work well in IE and traditional polling would be a better approach for scalable applications.

    Mongeez brought up an idea of keeping track of transactions in XML and building an inheritance structure to manipulate the index.

    SimpleReach shared the idea of storing multiple indexes for aggregated results using various filters. I found this approach very valuable and can easily be applied to existing applications.

    Trello team was great, though little light on the mongo. Nice to see the inside workings of the app. Would love to have focused completely on details of what they did wrong -- an anti pattern talk

    The Trello team did a great job explaining their architecture.
