Sydney MongoDB Meetup - 30 April, 2013

Agenda

The Journey to MongoDB : Trajectory Pattern Mining in Australian Instagram

This talk will discuss the work of the Advanced Analytics Institute (AAI; http://analytics.uts.edu.au) and a social media analytics case study inspiring ongoing MongoDB development will be presented.

Researchers at the institute are required to be "work ready", and having MongoDB skills is a critical success factor in big data analytics.

  • Key AAI speakers: Suresh Sood and Xinhua Zhu


Special Guest: Ron Avnur, VP Services and Product Management at 10gen, visiting from the US.

    Very interesting presentation of a very useful implementation of MongoDB. Quick quotes : "Mongodb gets the job done", "MongoDB is the natural choice when dealing with JSON API".

      This month's meetup will be a talk from Suresh & Xinhua (from UTS Advanced Analytics Institute); no laptop required. We'll assemble from 6pm and expect to start the talk around 6.30pm. The talk will be followed by Q&A and some food/grog as well as general discussion. Should be plenty of opportunity to ask any MongoDB-related questions and any feedback would be helpful to plan future meetups.

    is mongodb or any nosql data type faster to process results than any SQL relational database ?
    so far as targeting or grouping results via queries, which is the more efficient or accurate - nosql or sql type database ?

      Hi Stennie, hanks for your reply. before SQL became the standard, experimenting with flat file, s was the way we managed data. if NoSQL is a new substitute for this, then thats ok, the most important thing i consider is this data can be accesed and modified concurrently. we used various locking mechanisms to do this for flat files. is that how NoSQL works ? Another important one is data replication. SQL services manage that well. How does NoSQL take care of this ?

      Jim, mate. Nosql is the general term for many different DB systems which do not use sql language. Each of them has their own replication mechanism, most of them even do not need replication. Moreover, concurrency is the core feature of each as they are designed for high scalability and loads. :-)
      Again, please, stop asking newbie questions. It's impossible to answer them in this thread.
      Just try it!

    @Stennie,Vasyl.

    Not attacking anyone here. My last post was regarding a databse with 10 million records & 20 tables, for reading / modifying data contatined which is better , quicker or more efficient to process queries ? I got no answer to this just "leave him, hes in his comfort zone" thing..

    Well i do try out new things, if i see if it works for its purpose.

    You say NoSQL is better than SQL ?

    All i want to know is how? please provide some examples of your own experiences ?

    Also found syntax for SQL to be more natural and easier to understand than NoSQL.

    Came across a table that outlined syntax equivalents for each side of SQL ( SQL vs NoSQL) and saw NoSQL to be much more complex or "scientific", base level syntax arguments...

    Is there a natural language equivalent for NoSQL ?

      thx for the reply. was hoping to hear some success stories as feedback as far as moving from sql to nosql though. but anyways thx again.

      @Jim: the discussion you are looking for is much longer than a question on a meetup event page :). I would encourage you to experiment, to come along to the meetup, and to discuss your questions in online communities such as StackOverflow and the mongodb-user Google discussion group: https://groups.google....­.

    What is the topic of this meet up

    • Stennie

      If people are afraid or unwilling to try/learn new approaches, I don't think you can (or need to) force them. Leave them in their comfort zone, and get on building your own awesome projects. You can support someone on their journey, but only they can decide when they are ready to start. Success stories and curiosity may eventually win them over; overzealous advocacy will likely scare them away.
