Meetup #2 was held on 19th March at Plugin@Blk71, and saw James Tan from MongoDB, and Khang Toh from Picocandy coming down to speak about MongoDB in production.
This being the first meetup at Plugin, a hotbed for startups in Singapore, saw a fair bit of people who had never use mongo before, and a couple who had only use mongo in toy apps before. As a result, James spent more time covering on the basics of MongoDB, and how a production system should look like.
After James’ talk, we went outside for pizza, which was kindly sponsored by MongoDB, and started mingling around with one another. After pizzas, we went back in to continue with Khang’s talk.
Khang gave a short talk about how he built a scalable resumable file upload server using Tus.io and MongoDB, which in my opinion, was a rather interesting way to handle this problem in a scalable way. His slides can be found below.
The next meetup will be held at HackerspaceSG once again, and please do join us at https://www.facebook.com/groups/mongosg/ for more updates.
