This year, San Francisco was the destination for MongoDB Days 2014 and through the rainy weather and Los Angeles like traffic, hundreds of passionate developers, partners, and technology vendors gathered to hear about the latest release of MongoDB 2.8. In 2013 there was MongoDB Los Angeles, and naturally we were excited to see what has changed, and what we have to look forward to in the next update.
MongoDB Days is an annual event that gives MongoDB users with differing sets of experience (from highly experienced power users to those just getting into the NoSQL world) a chance to deepen and develop their skills, network with fellow MongoDB evangelists, and learn about the vast opportunities for those involved in the ecosystem.
The event was held in San Francisco at the Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF on December 3, 2014. The event gives everyone attending a chance to mingle with the engineers who build MongoDB and a chance to talk code, rub elbows and gush about the most exciting database around.
MongoDB Advanced Partner
For 2014, MongoDB introduced a Partner Track at the event to focus on the partners who are helping to grow MongoDB’s footprint in the marketplace and creating innovative solutions for companies such as eHarmony, MetLife and one of our own clients, FX Networks who used MongoDB for FXNetworks.com and Simpsons World (see picture below where Brendan Stefani, Account Executive, highlights our work as an example of enabling new apps and why enterprises choose MongoDB).
As part of our ramp up to MongoDB Advanced Partner status, I was excited to meet with other partners within the ecosystem to hear their success stories, challenges, and roadmap for 2015. MongoDB is investing in their channel development to work with the new and existing partners more closely and support them as they continue to bring exciting, innovative solutions to their clients.
