How Stripe Handles Event Processing Using MongoDB

Today we have a talk from a recent SF MongoDB user group meetup by MongoDB expert Greg Brockman. Greg has been leading development at Stripe where they use MongoDB to power their event processing system.


Monster is Stripe's in-house framework for producing and consuming events. Whenever a user logs in or a payment is received or a cron job runs (you get the picture) an event is logged into the Monster MongoDB event store. These events update aggregate totals, feed into fraud algorithms or can be analyzed as a changelog of the system. In this talk, you'll hear how MongoDB's unique features make it easy to implement Monster.
