The MongoDB Open Source Hack Contest

Apr 28 • Posted 4 months ago

Some of the best MongoDB tools come from the Open Source community. Projects like the Node.js Driver, Mongoose and Meteor have become the backbone of many MongoDB apps and have helped support the developer community all over the world. We want to see more of what the community has built.

For the month of May, we’ll be hosting a worldwide hack contest for Open Source tools built on or connected to MongoDB. The winner of the contest will receive a ticket to OSCON, furnished by O’Reilly.

Guidelines:

  • All projects must be built with the MongoDB source code or on top of a MongoDB API, community or MongoDB supported driver
  • Any new drivers created should abide by the driver requirements listed in the MongoDB Manual
  • All hacks will be judged by MongoDB engineers

All entries can be submitted to community@MongoDB.com with the following information before May 31

  • Github or Bitbucket URL
  • Description of the project
  • How do users benefit from this application?
  • Why did you choose to contribute to MongoDB?

We’re looking forward to seeing your hacks come in!

Sep 30 • Posted 11 months ago

MongoDB Announcements
  • Faceted Search with MongoDB: Faceted search, or faceted navigation, is a way of browsing and searching for items in a set of data by applying filters on various properties (facets) of the items in the collection. Faceted search makes it easy for users to navigate to the specific item or items they are interested in. It complements more free-form keyword search by facilitating exploration and discovery and is therefore useful when a user may not know the specific keywords they wish to search on. Learn how to implement faceted search with MongoDB
  • From Relational Databases to MongoDB - What You Need to Know: In this webinar on October 17, we’ll take a dive into how MongoDB works to better understand what non-relational design is, why we might use it and what advantages it gives us over relational databases. We’ll develop schema designs from examples, and consider strategies for scaling out.
  • MongoDB World: MongoDB has brought together more than 20,000 developers, IT professionals and executives in communities around the world. Now, MongoDB World will bring together this community in one place. Join us June 23-25 in New York City.
  • MMS Backup Feature Update*: MMS Backup now includes the ability to exclude databases and collections, permitting you to adjust the backup service to your needs and tune costs.
