Introduction to MongoDB

This MongoDB training class provides an intensive introduction to the premier open-source NoSQL document storage engine, MongoDB. The course guides the user through some of Mongo's most compelling use-cases while examining Mongo's feature set. Introduction to MongoDB employs a language-agnostic stance while exploring the features, capabilities, and common application uses of Mongo. The course does not concentrating on middle-tier connectivity using any particular language or platform, instead utilizing Mongo's own built-in JavaScript interpreter, and concentrating on learning Mongo querying using Mongo's json-based query language, efficiently indexing Mongo collections, and data processing with Mongo's built-in map-reduce capabilities.

This course is designed both for the enterprise developer or database designer/developer who wants to get a broad and accurate introduction to MongoDB.

What people say about our training

This was really helpful instruction for quick entry to the program! I highly recommend Webucator for future endeavors.

I was looking for an explanation of how Expression Web worked vs. my current software of Front Page and I got this in spades. PLUS I wanted to be refreshed on how to do CSS and I got that big time. I wanted to have an appraisal of a few of my current web pages I maintain, and I got that as well. Perfection all around.
