The start of the next generation.

21st April 2015 in London at Skills Matter

This SkillsCast was filmed at New Generation of Drivers

Its been a long time coming but the next generation of MongoDB drivers are starting to be released. As a driver team we've collaborated and started to design common themes across languages, to help normalize and clarify the behaviour of our drivers.

Using the new 3.0 Java driver as the example, we'll look at some of the new interfaces and design decisions that are helping shape these next generation of drivers.

In the second part of the talk we go reactive and introduce the new asynchronous java driver. We'll look at some of the challenges going asynchronous on the JVM and how this new driver is being used as the foundation for a new Reactive Stream Driver and a new Scala Driver.


The start of the next generation.
