EuroPython 2019: Introducing MongoDB

We are very pleased to have MongoDB as Keystone Sponsor for EuroPython 2019. You can visit them at the most central booth in our exhibit area on the second floor in the Congress Center Basel (CCB), and take the opportunity to chat with their staff and learn more about the MongoDB eco-system.

Please find below a hosted blog post from MongoDB.


EuroPython 2019 Team


MongoDB ❤️ Python 

MongoDB is the leading modern, general-purpose database platform, designed to unleash the power of software and data for developers and the applications they build. We have architected our database to cater to the needs of modern-day applications from the ground-up with built-in support for high availability through sophisticated replication with self-healing recovery and horizontal scalability through native sharding. MongoDB Atlas is our fully-automated database-as-a-service offering, engineered and run by the same team that builds the database. At MongoDB, it is our mission to make data ridiculously easy to work with and we love, love, LOVE Python because it helps us do exactly that.

To bring the power of MongoDB to the Python ecosystem, we’ve developed PyMongo - the Python driver for MongoDB. With over 3 million downloads per month, PyMongo is one of our most popular drivers. Our Driver team also maintains Motor - an asynchronous Python driver for MongoDB and PyMODM - our object-document mapper. While Python is an important and popular tool for our users, it is also an integral part of developer workflows across our engineering teams. Our Documentation team, for instance, maintains the Giza library which is used to render the entire official MongoDB documentation. Our Education team builds MongoDB University with Django and uses PyMODM and MongoDB Atlas to store application data. The University site has over 1 million registered users and over 100,000 active users per month–all powered by MongoDB. Python is also an integral part of our CI/CD process used to test our core database and all drivers. 

Join us at our workshop where we will teach you how to harness the power of MongoDB Atlas to build a highly-available CRUD application using Flask and PyMongo. You will learn more about MongoDB’s document data model, how we ensure high-availability and best practices for building applications using MongoDB. We will also showcase how to build the same application in MongoDB Stitch - our serverless platform. Bring your laptops!

MongoDB is proud to support the Python community. In the past, we have sponsored conferences such as PyCon and PyGotham, and also hosted meetups such as PyLadies. Drop by our booth (#10) to say ‘hi’ to our awesome team and to learn more about Python at MongoDB! You can also join the conversation with other MongoDB and Python community members in our Community Slack Workspace. Register at or login at
