  • From Zero to Beta ... in 3 Months

Eddy from Wanderu will walk us through his experience for selecting a NoSQL solution to develop a Kayak-like consumer search site for buses and trains in record time and with limited resources. He will talk about the deciding criteria for going with MongoDB and the architectural choices and best practices along the way. He will touch on key technical features that were crucial in building the site, like geospatial indexing, schema-less development, and how MongoDB can be used as a launching pad to prepare for more specialized features involving a search engine or a graph database. Wanderu is a 2012 MassChallenge Finalist. Eddy Wong is the CTO at Wanderu, where he heads up engineering and is the resident advocate for NoSQL and Big Data technologies. Prior to Wanderu he held engineering positions at Hasbro, Maark, Allurent, Macromedia, Allaire and consulted for AT&T and Philips. He was also the Chief Architect at Open Sesame, a pioneer in personalization technology. Eddy has a BA in Computer Science and Mathematics from Ohio Wesleyan University and an MS in Computer Science from Brown University.
