10gen Announces MongoSF Conference

April 30 Event in San Francisco to Focus on Using NoSQL Database MongoDB for Web Applications

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 18, 2010) -  10gen, the sponsor of the MongoDB project, today announced MongoSF, a full-day conference which will take place Friday, April 30 at Bently Reserve in San Francisco. Hashrocket, an expert web design and development group, is a co-sponsor.

"In 2009, NoSQL was emerging. In 2010, tools like MongoDB are being used for many serious production applications," said Dwight Merriman, co-founder and CEO of 10gen. "The goal of the MongoSF conference (and its 35 sessions) is to provide the detail engineers need in the real world to deliver robust production applications using MongoDB."

MongoDB is an open source, non-relational, document-oriented database used in production at companies including SourceForge,, GitHub, Business Insider, Boxed Ice and Disqus. The project focuses on combining high horizontal scalability and performance, a "schemaless" architecture that makes development easy and intuitive, and rich features, like dynamic queries and index support, not found in other NoSQL products. MongoDB features support for a range of leading languages including Java, Ruby, C#, PHP, Python, and more.

"When it comes to Web infrastructure, MongoDB combines the best of both non-relational and relational databases, making it a great choice for a primary operational data store," said Obie Fernandez, Founder of Hashrocket. "MongoSF will offer valuable insights into how MongoDB can be leveraged by developers of many different stripes and real examples of how the database can be useful in production environments."

MongoSF will include sessions on database features, development with MongoDB in a wide range of dynamic languages, in-depth examples of production deployments, and development workshops. Confirmed speakers include John Nunemaker (CTO, Ordered List) and Emmett Shear (CTO, among others.

Early bird registration for MongoSF costs $50 and runs through April 9. For additional agenda details or to register for MongoSF, visit:
