January 2012 Meeting

Building a First Application on MongoDB

NOTE DATE CHANGE! – because this is a joint event with the Atlanta MongoDB User Group, we will be meeting on the third Thursday of the month, January 19th.

Presentation by Richard Kreuter

This talk will introduce the features of MongoDB by walking through how one can building a simple location-based application using MongoDB. The talk will cover the basics of MongoDB’s document model, query language, map-reduce framework and deployment architecture.

Richard has wrangled code in bioinformatics, websites, compilers, airfare search, among other randoms. About half a career ago, while boggling at a hairy bioinformatics database schema, he often asked to himself, “Why are we trying to shoehorn as-yet-unstructured facts of cutting-edge science into a data model meant mostly for plumbing parts and payrolls?”.
