What You'll Learn

In this course you will learn how to set up your database and start exploring different ways to search, create, and analyze your data with MongoDB. We will cover database performance basics, and discover how to get started with creating applications and visualizing your data.

We'll start together with the ultimate basics, learning what a database is and recognizing what makes MongoDB different in the database space. Then you'll move on to working with data as you grasp the difference between BSON and JSON and start to import, export and query. Next you'll absorb how to create and manipulate documents with hands-on learning, and skill-up to mastering advanced Create Read Update Delete (CRUD) operations. By this time you'll be ready to work on Indexing, Data Modeling, and creating an Aggregation Pipeline.
