Hey <<First Name>>,

Here are some things I thought were worth sharing this month:

MongoDB Object Array Lookup Aggregation 
It turns out looking up documents who's ID exists as a field on an object in an array is no easy task for MongoDB. Come with me on a journey as we delve into a six stage aggregation pipeline that does just that.

Timing Streams in Node.js 
I've been tasked with speeding up a Node.js stream-based pipeline. The first step of making something faster is figuring out how slow it is. Check out this small helper function I wrote to do just that!

Random Seeds, Lodash, and ES6 Imports 
Generating a stream of consistently random values can be incredibly important in some situations, but it can also be tricky to achieve. Check out how we can take advantage of ES6 imports to ensure consistent randomness from external libraries, like Lodash.

So, what have you been up to this month?
