foursquare is a location-based social network that incorporates gaming elements. foursquare uses MongoDB to store venues, users, and user “check-ins” into venues. In this session, we’ll talk about how foursquare leveraged MongoDB to handle the rapid growth of the service, as well as lessons learned along the way. In addition, we’ll discuss some of the open source tools that foursquare built for using MongoDB with the Scala programming language.
