January 2014 - Toronto MongoDB Meetup

Hosted by Kevin Cearns and Nick Boccone at Bento Miso. Paul Oude-Reimerink and Chad Tindel from MongoDB Inc.

Walked through resources like Mongo University and Mongo Monitoring service, and then had a beginner-intermediate level QA session with the TenGen guys, talking about use cases, experiences as solutions architects, and some technical stuff. The meetup lasted about 2 hours, then we all walked out of the building like penguins because it was particularly icy that night.

I liked seeing the variety of skill levels in one room, and hearing from people who had experienced exactly the struggles I have.
