MongoDB Essentials Course Overview

The MongoDB Essentials course is designed to give delegates experience of installing and using the MongoDB database. This hands-on course introduces delegates to the concept of a document-oriented database then shows how to set up MongoDB for use. Delegates use the built-in shell and various APIs to build a database access application and manipulate data. We also investigate optimising queries using indexes and aggregating data with MongoDB functions.

Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.
