Many user-facing applications present some kind of news feed/inbox system. You can think of Facebook, Twitter, or Gmail as different types of inboxes where the user can see data of interest, sorted by time, popularity, or other parameter. A scalable inbox is a difficult problem to solve: for millions of users, varied data from many sources must be sorted and presented within milliseconds. Different strategies can be used: scatter-gather, fan-out writes, and so on. This session presents an actual application developed by 10gen in Java, using MongoDB. This application is open source and is intended to show the reference implementation of several strategies to tackle this common challenge. The presentation also introduces many MongoDB concepts.
