My talk at APICon San Francisco on API Antipatterns.
APIs have become a part of the product ecosystem - and help the businesses by extending their developer base, and offering seamless integration with other services or products. Sometimes, the APIs themselves are the product. However, with so many APIs around, patterns emerge. Patterns are repeatable, reusable solutions to commonly occurring problems. Where there are patterns, there are also antipatterns.
In this session, I will talk about IGN’s Social Platform Architecture in context of MongoDB utilization. The talk will cover the social platform modules where IGN evaluated NoSQL solutions and picked MongoDB. These modules include activity streams, activity comments, notifications and other read/write heavy components. I’ll also discuss the deployment, monitoring and future plans regarding MongoDB at IGN beyond the Social Platform.
