MongoDB, Analytics, and Flexible Schemas at Appboy

In this talk, "MongoDB, Analytics, and Flexible Schemas," Jon Hyman, CTO and co-founder of Appboy, discusses how Appboy takes advantage of MongoDB's schemaless data modeling for analytic pre-aggregation. Jon will also discuss how Appboy uses the aggregation framework and statistical analysis to estimate results of ad-hoc queries over tens of millions of database documents. Furthermore, he will also cover other tips and hints that he learned from growing a MongoDB set up to support thousands of writes per second. This talk was recorded at the New York MongoDB user group meetup at Ebay NYC.
