I had the pleasure of speaking at CodeCamp NYC on Saturday, October 20th. Attached is the presentation I shared.
The talk covered a basic introduction to MongoDB, how it differs from Tabular Database Management Systems like SQL Server, MySQL, and the like. I also introduced MongoDB Atlas, the Database as a Service and MongoDB Stitch, the Backend as a Service.
Then, to help folks understand exactly how to begin, I provided a demonstration of MongoDB Atlas and showed exactly how to create a serverless application with MongoDB Stitch. The process takes less than 10 minutes. I created a GitHub Repository to share my application - feel free to fork, and share this.
If you want to see a more detailed demonstration of creating an application with MongoDB Stitch, check out my recent blog article on Creating a Data Enabled API in less than 10 Minutes with MongoDB Stitch.
I'd like to thank Steven Bohlen of CodeCamp for a fantastic experience, Microsoft NYC for hosting the event and all of the attendees and fellow speakers. I'm looking forward to future participation.
