A case study on how we built the community around MongoDB, with some lessons learned for anyone building community around open source
by Edward T Hall
Humanity is going head first into a wall of disaster, and pressing the accelerator. At the same time, we have the free tools that completely change the game. Nothing is happening though! Or it,s too slow. I will explain the emergence of a project that can help humanity harness the power of our inventive capacity, and will attempt to describe what I believe is the missing ingredient to catalyze the open source era.... it leads us to a very serious discussion of laser tag. I am sure you all will enjoy it at the very least :)
This intermediate-level talk will teach you techniques using the popular NoSQL database MongoDB and the Python library Ming to write maintainable, high-performance, and scalable applications. We will cover everything you need to become an effective Ming/MongoDB developer from basic PyMongo queries to high-level object-document mapping setups in Ming.

Recently the open source community (or a subset of it) has started to realize that in some ways it compares rather unfavorably with the mainstream IT industry. One such way is gender diversity: the industry's ~20% female staffing is six to ten times better than that of most open source communities.
Steve draws on his own and others' experience to suggest that there are many benefits to having the geek world better reflect the rich diversity of human society, and on the way offers his opinions on a variety of related and unrelated topics.
