We’re looking for speakers who can inspire and equip attendees by introducing them to new technologies, ideas, and solutions.


Take a look at our topics and see where your talks idea might fit:

  • How We Built It - Highlighting use cases, challenges, database migrations, cloud migrations, and teams building amazing things with MongoDB.
  • Designing Data - Schemas, modeling, transactions, data visualization, and everything related to designing data. Talks will cover data modeling and how to model data from tables to documents. 
  • Working with Data - Everything about working with data effectively: aggregations, change streams, triggers, and time series data. Talks will cover SQL/MQL comparisons and converting data from relational to non-relational.
  • Performance & Scaling - Strategies to scaling your data, your performance, your clusters, and your applications.
  • Security & Operations - Database security, encryption, compliance, and all about configuration, automation, and best practices for managing MongoDB deployments.
  • Web & Backend Development - Developing web apps, running backend services, using serverless resources, and connecting them all to MongoDB.
  • Mobile Development - App architecture, data sync, and robust data design patterns for the unique challenges and limitations of mobile platforms.
  • Make It Matter - Diversity & inclusion, accessible apps, mental health, and other non-technical subjects that are of interest to a technical audience.

Audience Level

When writing your proposal, please tailor it to a specific audience level:

  • Beginner - Engineers who are new to MongoDB. You’ll want to introduce key concepts, help them get started, and show them how to continue their learning journey.
  • Intermediate - These engineers have already built and shipped an MVP. They’re ready to dive deeper to learn about using MongoDB at scale.
  • Advanced - These engineers have built and maintained MongoDB applications at scale. They are veterans, but you’re going to teach them something new.

Your Submission

Our reviewers have to read through a lot of submissions. Here are some tips to make sure yours is successful:

  • Title - Your title should not be more than 80 characters long. Puns, creative wordplay, and “hooks” in titles are okay, but make sure that if all someone knew was the title, they still would have some idea what the presentation is about.
  • Description - Your description should be between 400 - 700 characters. Use the description to explain what the problem is. How did you solve it? Please give us tons of examples of what you’d talk about. 
  • Notes - You can use the notes section to explain the details of your talk in a bit more conversational way. Share your experience with the problem, give us the outline of your talk, or explain why MongoDB World would be less without your talk.
  • Be sure to review our free MongoDB University course for crafting conference abstracts.

Speaker Selection Process

The program committee consists of 30+ MongoDB employees and community members. Speaker information such as name and biography is hidden from the committee and we’ll grade the sessions based on the content. After the call for speakers closes, we’ll discuss the highest voted submissions and committee member favorites for each track. From there, we’ll put together the event program. All speaker submissions will receive an answer from us by end of February 2022. 

At MongoDB, we believe in fostering an environment where diverse perspectives can grow and thrive. We are intentional about increasing speaker diversity at our events by inviting speakers from underrepresented groups in technology. In the spirit of inclusion, we have listed a set of voluntary demographic questions. The information collected through these questions helps us to ensure a diverse speaker lineup and identify areas for improvement in our speaker recruitment processes. The questions are voluntary and you are not required to answer them.

MongoDB Speaker Scholarship

The Speaker Scholarship Program aims to help speakers from underrepresented groups in technology be on stage at MongoDB World. Speakers who are selected as part of this program will receive access, flights, and lodging for MongoDB World from MongoDB. All participants must follow the official rules here
