What You'll Learn

This course will teach you how to use MongoDB as the database for an ASP.NET application.

You will play the role of a back-end developer for an ASP.NET application, where your job is to implement the application's communication with MongoDB. Using the C# driver you will read and write data to the database, use the aggregation framework, manage the configuration of the database client, and create a robust application by handling exceptions and timeouts.

You'll add new features and functionality to the back-end for a movie-browsing application called MFlix.

Using the MongoDB C# driver, you will implement most of MFlix's functionality. This includes basic and complex movie searches, registering new users, and enabling commenting on the site.

You will also add more features to the MFlix application. This includes writing analytical reports, increasing the durability of MFlix's connection with MongoDB, and implementing security best practices.


We highly recommend taking M001 prior to taking this course.

A basic understanding of MongoDB's document model as well as familiarity with C# development environments will help you get the most out of this course.

What is the cost of an online course?

MongoDB University courses are free.

What do I need to take a course?

You will need access to a computer with: Operating System: Mac OS X 10.7+ 64-bit, Ubuntu 14.04+ 64-bit, or Windows 8+ (64-bit) Web Browser: Firefox 39.0+ or Chrome 43+ (Internet Explorer is currently not supported)

Do I need to be available during a certain hour of the day to watch course videos?

No. The course is self-paced and will be broken down into short pre-recorded video segments with periodic assessments to check on your progress.

What do I receive for taking this course?

You will receive a final grade but the grade won't be on your proof of completion. To receive a proof of completion, you will need to achieve 65% on graded material. There are three different types of assessments within the course: quizzes, labs, and a final exam. Quizzes don't count toward your grade but will help you check your understanding. The labs will comprise one half of your grade and the final exam/project one half of your grade. Unfortunately, due to a large number of students and in the interest of fairness, late assignments cannot be accepted.

Will I be able to get help?

Each course has an active online forum where students can help each other. In addition, the MongoDB engineers will monitor the forums and try to help.

Do I need to pay to use MongoDB Enterprise for this course?

Not at all! MongoDB suite of products are free for evaluation purposes and no need to worry about licenses.

Receiving a Proof of Completion
