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 March, the name fits quite well!
March Madness for us is where we are going to send a MongoDB Engineer to each of our MUGs that requested to take part in the event! It’s going to be amazing! I wasn’t sure how many would take part in the Madness, it’s been a lot of fun to organise and even more to see the various engineers take part in the event, each bringing with them their own style and ideas to the MUGs so no two talks are alike.
It’s been great to see the MUGs tell their stories, show their previous events and want to take part in the madness. I hope this trend continues and even more take part next year! If you don’t know about MongoDB or want to learn more it’s a great opportunity to attend and meet some of our engineers.
