Pre-Aggregated Analytics And Social Feeds Using MongoDB [Video]

This week, we hosted a live webinar during which two ObjectRocket by Rackspace customers, Appboy and Untappd, highlighted how they use MongoDB and other data services on the cloud. Full video from the webinar is available below.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We received so many great MongoDB questions during the webinar, and we weren’t able to get to them all. With that in mind, we’re extending the Q&A session from the webinar to a Google Hangout with ObjectRocket founder Kenny Gorman. Kenny will be on hand to answer all of those questions, plus new ones, about MongoDB. Join us for the hangout Wednesday, February 19 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. CST.

Jon Hyman, co-founder and CIO of Appboy, an engagement platform for mobile apps, highlighted how it solved issues around pre-aggregated analytics and used statistical formulas on top of the aggregation framework to return results in real time as its data grew. And Greg Avola, co-founder and developer at Untappd, a social network for beer lovers, discussed how MongoDB and ObjectRocket helped Untappd address problems with serving its social feed and how it sustained high performance up to 5,000 to 6,000 queries per second, and used location indexes to enable geo-location search.

Here’s a full video recording of the webinar and a PDF of the presentation slides:

This webinar was the first in a series that will focus on MongoDB and other data services. Following each webinar, you will have the opportunity to tell us what other areas you would like to explore throughout the series.
