Being busy and trying to prioritise your workload

I’m busy! I’ve noticed more and more that’s all people seem to say lately. As soon as you say hi how’s things? Or how have you been?

It’s all well and good to talk about technology to people daily which I do but I also needed to understand more of it in greater depth.

March Madness comes to a city near you

Before Christmas, I  announced that MongoDB was planning to celebrate its own version of “March Madness” called MongoDB March Madness, an event featuring 27 of our European MongoDB User Groups.  This is the second annual March MUG Madness, and we’re thrilled that the number of requests to take part has only continued to grow.  March Madness is an annual Division 1 college basketball tournament in the U.S. which leads up to the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Finals. MongoDB March Madness does not have much to do with the basketball game, however, since the event is happening in ...
