MongoDB Stitch - the latest, and best way to build your app

In a recent 6 part blog series on the MEAN & MERN stacks, I stepped through how you can build modern applications on a stack of MongoDB, Node.js, Express, and Angular or React. What if there was a service that took care of everything apart from the application frontend (Angular, React, or other technology)? MongoDB Stitch is that service, it's a new backend as a service (BaaS) for applications using MongoDB. The purpose of this post is to introduce what MongoDB Stitch is and, most importantly, demonstrate exactly how you use it – both configuring your app through the Stitch back... (more)

The MongoDB Intern Series: From a Public University to a Private Company

For students studying computer science in public universities and community colleges, it can be difficult to land a dream internship. The supposition is that many organizations are so selective in their qualifications that they tend to only consider students from top private institutions to bring on as interns and ultimately hire. That was Joseph Pena’s initial thought when he first came across a job posting for the MongoDB Summer Internship Program. Joseph is going into his senior year at the University of Florida where he is a CS major and a member of the Association of Comput... (more)

Programmatic API Management of your MongoDB Atlas Database Clusters - Part II

In the blog post, "Programmatic API Management of your MongoDB Atlas Database Clusters", we introduced how to use curl to launch and edit a MongoDB Atlas cluster. The concepts in that post helped establish the groundwork for being able to launch MongoDB Atlas clusters with many of the popular DevOps automation tools available in the market. We recommend reading the post linked above as a prerequisite to what we will cover here — some common use cases with the MongoDB Atlas API. The GUI versus API While point-and-click actions in the MongoDB Atlas GUI are easy, they do not necessa... (more)

The AWS Refresher: Lambda, Kinesis, Step Functions & more

With the next AWS Summit just around the corner (literally and figuratively), we thought we’d recap some of our favorite AWS-related tutorials. 1. Using Kinesis for high-volume data streaming: This post was written in the run-up to AWS re:Invent last year but it’s still very useful for understanding how AWS Kinesis allows for efficient data ingestion. In this post, we walk you through initiating a sensor data stream with Kinesis and storing that data in a MongoDB Atlas cluster. 2. Building Alexa skills in the Amazon Developer Console: Part of our series on the modern app stack (M... (more)
