This talk will introduce the philosophy and features of the open source, NoSQL MongoDB. We'll quickly dispense with the marketing slides and get into document design, writing a basic application, replication and sharding. And since MHVLUG is so near to his heart, hel'll dive into how to build MongoDB and how he approachs some debugging scenarios.
Mike Grundy was one of the original instigators of MHVLUG, and is now a Member of Technical Staff at 10gen, the MongoDB company. He's previously presented on Open Hardware and The Gimp.
Lightning Talks What I did this summer: Rhodecode and git - Al Jachimiak Eyefi - (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqCZOhvNYfQ) Sean Dague Location: Rockefeller Hall 200, Vassar College
MHVLUG returns to Rockefeller Hall for the[masked] Vassar Academic year. The best parking on site is the north lot of campus, which is accessible off of Collegeview Ave in Poughkeepsie. Once you are parked in the north lot walk south along North Drive. Rockefeller Hall is on the right, somewhat set back, as you walk down the main stretch. Enter the hall and go to the second floor. Room 200 is at the top of the stairs. The room will be open at 5pm, and people are welcome to come early.
When in doubt, use the map for reference.
