Congrats 10gen on a great event. It was a huge cheer for MongoDB.
During and after the event you can see the strong acceptance of Mongo from the NYC tech community. There are several big names and budding start-ups that have already jumped right in with MongoDB and I don’t see this trend letting up anytime soon.
So why the blog? I gave the talk on MongoDB and PHP Development. Yes, it’s an exciting topic! Don’t you click away and give LightCube a high bounce rate.
Looking back, I took a real cursory path on both topics. That’s not a bad thing but I feel its time to dig a little deeper. If given the opportunity to speak again I’ll probably present more complex examples of how I and others have changed the “M” in LAMP to MongoDB. If you haven’t already clicked play jump to slide 23 and about 10:20 in the video for the “juicy” part. That’s where I talk about creating a simple blog with the RAD PHP Framework Lithium and MongoDB. Otherwise, don’t miss my Yankee Stadium reference and the Magento EAV whack in the first few slides.
