Intro to MongoDB

For our inaugural meetup, we will have Daniel Roberts, Solutions Architect at 10gen, offer an introductory overview of MongoDB, the high performance, document oriented non-relational database. 

MongoDB – from "humongous" – is an open source, non-relational, document-oriented database. Trading off a few traditional features of databases (notably joins and transactions) in order to achieve much better performance, MongoDB is fast, scalable, and designed for web development. The goal of the MongoDB project is to bridge the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and highly scalable) and traditional RDBMS systems (which provide rich queries and deep functionality).

This talk will cover:
Getting started - CRUD and the JavaScript shell
Creating schemas for a document-oriented DB
Scaling with MongoDB (replica sets, master/slave, auto-sharding)
Interesting features for developers (geospatial indexing, capped collections, file storage, upserts and more)

Thanks to HP for generously offering their space for this meetup.

    Very Informative, good access to 10gen people, pity it wasn't better attended - may get better attendance if held later

    Very useful - good to understand the level of knowledge of MongoDB from the group. Daniel was an excellent presenter who was able to use real customer insight and examples to help explain how MongoDB is used.
