Tech in Motion's Tech Trivia Night

Oct 23, 2014 · New York, United States of America

Join us October 23rd for a night of networking, drinks and our first ever Tech Trivia Night! Bring a team or come alone and we'll find you some friends when you arrive. Brush up on your tech know-how, knowledge of startups and entrepreneurs in NYC, and of course, Tech in Motion! Sweet prizes will be rewarded to the winning team and you're not going to want to miss this event!
And of course, no Tech in Motion would be complete without a little networking. So if you're not a trivia buff, join us anyway for a little free amusement, drinks and snacks! 
Schedule:
6:30-7:00: Networking, drinks & appetizers
7:15-8:00: Trivia!

Trivia Details:
Four rounds, 20 possible points per round. There are no point deductions for wrong answers. Teams should be 2-5 people (as this is a networking event, we're happy to assign you a few teammates if you come alone)
Round 1: Logo Round. 10 questions, 2 points each. You will be given a sheet of logos and have to name the companies they belong to. 
Round 2: New York Tech Companies. 4 questions, 20 possible points. You decide how much each question is worth out of 2, 4, 6 or 8 points, but you must use each wager one time.

ObjectRocket by Rackspace: 
ObjectRocket was founded to tackle a serious deficiency in cloud infrastructure - the database. Currently, there just aren't any good options for developers, where the promise of performance and scalability are real. Most options are general purpose, on-demand oriented architectures that work great for generic elastic compute - but the database presents a unique challenge that existing clouds just don't account for.
We used the decades of experience we have building the systems that power some of the busiest sites on the net to create a scalable, reliable, and easy to use database architecture, and wrap it up in our unique POD architecture that can be seamlessly scaled on demand. It's specifically designed and built to run MongoDB at breakneck speeds with world class reliability.
We chose MongoDB as our core data store for a few reasons: First, we have a ton of collective MongoDB experience, but further, who doesn't want to create applications using a simple and wonderful JSON-style document structure; It's a developers dream.
We joined the Rackspace family in February 2013 because we love the team and the open cloud technology they’ve built. Database architectures, especially NoSQL databases like MongoDB, pose significant challenges for performance and scalability in the cloud—but our team addresses these challenges head on. Together, our technology and expertise help businesses build better apps, faster. 
Scalable, fast, reliable, automated MongoDB & Redis with Fanatical Support® Free trial: https://app.objectrocket.com/sign_up
