Switching to Mongo Atlas

Notic Meet used a Digital Ocean managed database (MongoDB) for a while, but recently we decided to switch to Mongo Atlas. We don’t have any valuable data, so switching was just a matter of changing the connection string and database name in the app settings in the C# project. Other than that, it did take a bit of time to figure out why we couldn’t add new documents, but all went smoothly.

Next on the list, now that the school holidays are almost wrapping up here in England (and recently in the US), is to start getting the first prototype ready. The backend is at a good enough place to move forward and anything that comes up can be adjusted as needed.

Although progress has been slow the last few months, we’re about to pick up speed again.
