Abstract: MongoDB on Azure for Devs

Are you a developer? Do you want to make your site faster?  Think Mongo DB! I will start with why should you care about Mongo.   What makes them better at some things than old fashioned relational databases.  What are they worse at?  I will show you how to enhance existing sites with mongo db, and how to make fresh sites really hum.   I will show you techniques I use *in production* to make my web api 50% faster.   I will show you how a statically typed language can interact very well with a dynamically typed database (its true!).    You will walk away with not only a good idea of whether or not its a good addition for your project. But, examples and patterns for how to actually make it work for you. Learn Mongo. Learn Fast. Give your DBA some much needed rest.

Bio: A web developer since the mid ’90s and a lone dev since the turn of the millenia, Mark has a unique perspective on the problems of programming. From developing “The Daily WTF” style code in his early days, to independently synthesizing many common design patterns in his progression in a vacuum. Then came a new enlightenment and a realization of the community and its resources. This understanding of the pain of doing things the wrong way, leads to a fresh perspective. A smart sense of humour and some training from professional speakers make sure that any talk will be both interesting and informative.
