In 2010, he started his career as a .NET web programmer. Four years later, he was given the opportunity to work on Java projects. We was thrilled by the idea of learning a new programming language so he jumped right in. Today, he loves developing cool apps in C#, Java, and JavaScript. In 2016, hecreated his blog and YouTube channel, where he publishes tutorials, tips, and thoughts on software development and technology. He is thrilled when his articles and tutorials help someone learn new things.

Hands-on lab: Spring Boot + MongoDB = ❤️

Q. Tell us a bit about yourself. What are your hobbies and interests?

I’m known as a passionate software developer, DevOps enthusiast and blogger who loves to share his experiences with fellow developers. When I am not coding, I really enjoy hanging up with my friends, reading something cool or swimming.

 

Q. Why did you select this topic for your session at Voxxed Days Bucharest 2019?

I had the chance to work with MongoDB since 2011. I used this NoSQL database with C#, Node and Java (Spring). I learned a lot from these experiences and I would love to share them with fellow developers.
Also, MongoDB is becoming the “de facto” NoSQL database for the enterprise, so learning to integrate it with Spring Boot apps is becoming more and more necessary.

 

Q. Who should attend your session? 

Developers who want to integrate MongoDB in Spring Boot projects.

 

Q. What are the key things attendees will take away from your session? 

The most important things that attendees will take away from this lab are:
– they will understand why MongoDB is so used in the enterprise world, how it differes from other NoSQL alternatives and how it compares to classic relational databases
– they will learn how to use MongoDB with a Spring Boot app for CRUD operations, advanced filtering and aggregations
– they will discover how to use an in memory version of MongoDB for integration testing

Most importantly, they will have all the knowledge to start using this information at work, in new or existing projects.

 

 Q. Aside from speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest, what are your other plans for this year?

I would like to finish my new Spring Boot Security course on YouTube, create a course on Pluralsight and get more involved in the current Java community.
