Working on a Mongo Project

These days I am getting used to my new job and driving around all the time in Austin.

I am also working on something on my own time. I have a project on Github called dividend_champions. I am parsing some speadsheets in Ruby and uploading the results into Mongo using Mongoid. The spreadsheets are from the Dividend Champions series from the DRIP Investing Resource Center. They have data about companies that have raised their dividends for several years.

I am using Mongo because from 2008 to 2012 fields have been added. I figured instead of constantly making changes to the schema, it would be best to use something schema-less. When I am done I will work on some queries, both in the mongo shell and with Mongoid.
