Greg Brockman is a MongoDB expert, and has been leading development at Stripe where they use MongoDB to power their event processing system.

Monster is Stripe's in-house framework for producing and consuming events. Whenever a user logs in, whenever a payment is received, whenever a cron job runs, an event is logged into our MongoDB event store. These events update aggregate totals, feed into fraud algorithms, and can be analyzed as a changelog of the system. In this talk, we'll discuss how MongoDB's unique features make it easy to implement Monster. Steven Citron-Pousty is an evangelist at OpenShift and will be sharing how to use JEE6 and Mongo on OpenShift - easy enough for your grandma
