It was great attending the MongoSV conference last week. The conference was packed with attendees from a mix of backgrounds, showing lots of interest in scaling with MongoDB. There were some good technical talks from 10gen about their database. I especially liked the hands on intro by CEO Dwight Merriman, and the hand drawn slides to describe mongo’s internals by Mathias Stearn. It was good to hear Brendan McAdams describe some level of Hadoop integration, though it feels like there’s a lot more work required to get to a robust solution.
Thanks to Meghan Gill for encouraging us to come!
