Speaking at MongoSF Conference: Building a Streaming Analytics System with Mongo
I am excited to announce that I will be speaking at MongoSF 2011 with my fellow data wrangler, Tim. Our talk will cover how we used Mongo to build the PatternBuilders Analytics Framework. The official title for our talk is: Building a Streaming Analytics System with Mongo.
In a previous post, I talked about the impact our Social Media Analytics solution had on our deployment choices. Briefly, we wanted to make a beta version of our solution publicly available on the web and to do that, we needed to ensure sufficient capacity. Since we did not want to make a massive investment in the infrastructure to support it, we investigated the state of cloud servers. Long story short, as part of our move from our colo to the cloud we made a significant change in architecture, fully embraced some of MongoDB’s more advanced capabilities, and created a radically improved product – although the previous version was pretty cool too!
Tim, one of our wunderkind programming staff (and occasional guest blogger on technical topics – PatternBuilders Analytics Framework, correlation, and the wonders of .NET), and I will be talking about how we built a .Net based streaming analytics engine using Mongo. Specifically, we will be talking about:
- How we evolved our platform from a traditional Object Relational Mapping solution to a hybrid relational/NoSQL one.
- The features that made Mongo our choice for a NoSQL engine.
- Some performance numbers.
- How we integrated Mongo, RDBs, Silverlight, MSMQ and other technologies.
- How we turned these technologies into a seamless, easy to use, scalable product that analyzes big data sets in very complex and diverse domains, including Retail, Health Care and Social Media Analytics.
