Here are the details for the September MongoDB User Group.Inside MongoDB: The Internals of an Open Source Database
Tuesday, September 21 at 6:30pm
Hosted by Engine Yard
The architecture of MongoDB is as interesting as its applications - blending ideas from RDBMSes, key/value stores, and large distributed systems like BigTable, in addition to employing some unique innovations of its own. In this talk we'll describe and discuss MongoDB's data format - BSON, the insert path, the query optimizer, auto-sharding, replication, and more. The talk will be of interest to developers interested in MongoDB and looking to learn more about what's going on "under the hood", as well as anyone interested in distributed systems and the design decisions that go into creating a system like MongoDB.
