Technical Level: 

Steve Francia, VP of Engineering at OpenSky a NYC based social commerce company, will present on how OpenSky augments using RDBMS with MongoDB to develop the next ecommerce platform. OpenSky utilizes both traditional SQL solutions and combines them with NoSQL to overcome the limitations of each, increase development speed and scale quickly.

OpenSky uses MongoDB, Symfony 2, Doctrine 2, PHP 5.3, PHPUnit 3.5, jQuery, node.js, Git (with gitflow) and a touch of Java and Python. The OpenSky team contributes back to many of these technologies and employs core members of the Symfony 2 and Doctrine 2 teams. Check us out on github @
