We are very pleased to have MongoDB as Keystone Sponsor for EuroPython
2019. You can visit them at the most central booth in our exhibit area
on the second floor in the Congress Center Basel (CCB), and take the
opportunity to chat with their staff and learn more about the MongoDB

Please find below a hosted blog post from MongoDB.

MongoDB ❤ Python

MongoDB is the leading modern, general-purpose database platform,
designed to unleash the power of software and data for developers and
the applications they build. We have architected our database to cater
to the needs of modern-day applications from the ground-up with
built-in support for high availability through sophisticated
replication with self-healing recovery and horizontal scalability
through native sharding. MongoDB Atlas is our fully-automated
database-as-a-service offering, engineered and run by the same team
that builds the database. At MongoDB, it is our mission to make data
ridiculously easy to work with and we love, love, LOVE Python because
it helps us do exactly that.

To bring the power of MongoDB to the Python ecosystem, we’ve developed
PyMongo - the Python driver for MongoDB. With over 3 million downloads
per month, PyMongo is one of our most popular drivers. Our Driver team
also maintains Motor - an asynchronous Python driver for MongoDB and
PyMODM - our object-document mapper. While Python is an important and
popular tool for our users, it is also an integral part of developer
workflows across our engineering teams. Our Documentation team, for
instance, maintains the Giza library which is used to render the
entire official MongoDB documentation. Our Education team builds
MongoDB University with Django and uses PyMODM and MongoDB Atlas to
store application data. The University site has over 1 million
registered users and over 100,000 active users per month–all powered
by MongoDB. Python is also an integral part of our CI/CD process used
to test our core database and all drivers.

Join us at our workshop where we will teach you how to harness the
power of MongoDB Atlas to build a highly-available CRUD application
using Flask and PyMongo. You will learn more about MongoDB’s document
data model, how we ensure high-availability and best practices for
building applications using MongoDB. We will also showcase how to
build the same application in MongoDB Stitch - our serverless
platform. Bring your laptops!

MongoDB is proud to support the Python community. In the past, we have
sponsored conferences such as PyCon and PyGotham, and also hosted
meetups such as PyLadies. Drop by our booth (#10) to say ‘hi’ to our
awesome team and to learn more about Python at MongoDB! You can also
join the conversation with other MongoDB and Python community members
in our Community Slack Workspace. Register at
