Aaron Silverman, Doodle or Die
"Doodle or Die" is a popular online drawing game built on Node.js and MongoDB. It started off as an entry to the 2011 Node Knockout competition and after winning the category for "Most Fun" has continued to grow into a game that has thousands of players play each day who have produced millions of drawings. This talk will use Doodle or Die as a vehicle to showcase the many strengths of using MongoDB as a go-to database for small and midsize applications. It will also cover lessons learned as we used MongoDB to rapidly develop and scale Doodle or Die.
