New Beginnings

After a 3+ year break to build a startup, I’m jumping back into Arborian with both feet. You should expect to see some changes on the site, and more frequent blogging.

For now, I’ll leave you with a link to a talk I did at MongoDB World last year about Chapman, a high performance distributed task queue we use at my startup:

Chapman: Building a High-Performance Distributed Task Service with MongoDB

Schema Design at Scale

Slides from July Atlanta MongoDB User Group

[slideshare id=13755693&doc=schemadesignatscale-120725122529-phpapp02]

Want to learn how to design your app to scale? Like, _really_ scale? On a single master database? To a global audience? Come hear Rick Copeland tell the story of the MongoDB Monitoring Service (MMS), a free realtime monitoring platform available for all MongoDB users, worldwide. You’ll learn how 10gen used MongoDB’s document-based storage to open up MMS to any and all of their customers, worldwide, for free, storing minute-by-minute statistics for every server process they run, all on a single-master MongoDB deployment.
