Featured Presentation

Getting Started with MongoDB in .NET

Speaker: Joe Feser

Summary: In this talk we will go over what is involved in setting up MongoDB on Windows and what is involved in working with it in C#. We will discuss: how to serialize / deserilize objects, how to query the data, and how to configure databases and containers ("tables"). Joe will demonstrate what an e-commerce ordering system would look like in MS Sql Server and compare how it would look in MongoDB, including the sample code. Joe will demonstrate how to create object structures for quick get and set operations. He will wrap up by discussing the challenges of migrating to MongoDB from Sql server including searching and indexing.

About Joe: Joe Feser has over 17 years of experience with Microsoft technologies, and has worked on a vast array of challenging projects. He works at Logical Advantage on a wide array of technologies including Html5, Knockout.js, Silverlight, and Sql Server. In 2008, he moved to Greenville, SC from Cleveland, OH to work for NCover. Since then, he has worked on a free timing profiler and many open source projects. He also spends a lot of time working with Microsoft Azure using the Service Bus, Sql and Compute technologies.
