  • Scaling with MongoDB

    by Michael Schurter

    Urban Airship started using MongoDB in early 2010 and began migrating data off of it almost exactly a year later.

    This talk will detail the wins Urban Airship gained with MongoDB as well as the shortcomings that eventually led to other databases being preferred. The goal is not to encourage or discourage anyone considering MongoDB but rather to share one group's experience with the database while supporting an ever growing amount of data.

    For those who saw the first iteration of this talk at Update Portland, the slides will be updated, improved, and new data on sharding, replica sets, etc. will be added.

    At 9:00am to 9:45am, Wednesday 22nd June

  • No More Joins

    by J Chris Anderson, Roger Bodamer and Nuno Job

    For too long we’ve been taught that relational databases are the right tool for all jobs. While RDBMS are great for many projects what happens when a document database is the right tool for the job? When you turn to popular open-source document databases you find yourself having your relational background working against you. Exasperated developers end up asking questions like: how do I do a join or how do I group and query documents? What happens when I don’t have a table, a schema, rows or SQL statements?

    When you’re thinking documents you normally start by thinking about the questions that you want to ask and create your model around those questions. In this interactive discussion we explore how this ends up being more intuitive than in relational databases and normalization.

    Understand how people have been doing this for real life problems or, better yet, tell us your problem and let’s discuss how we can solve it using a document database.

    Bring your questions!
