MongoBaseball.NET v2.0 (now with more MongoDB!!)


You like baseball, you like MongoDB and you like .NET. Why not put them all together and achieve a zen-like state of being completely in touch with your data! This session will walk through some familiar and not-so-familiar baseball statistics and how you can crunch them using MongoDB’s aggregation pipeline. We’ll talk about MongoDB’s aggregation pipeline, the different components of the pipeline, and how they can be used together to calculate some SABR metric statistics. This talk will be mostly code and will alternate between the MongoDB shell and code using the C# driver.
This talk is updated from last year’s with the latest MongoDB 2.0 C# driver along with updated stats and some new calculations. If time permits, we’ll also look at some offline processing in order to calculate some of the more complicated statistics.
