Instructor: Caleb Thompson

Caleb is a Staff Engineer and Developer Educator at MongoDB. His passion is helping new developers fall into the "pit of success", regardless of their background or choice of tech stack. Naturally, he is a big fan of MongoDB for this reason (and plenty of others). His preferred language is C#, but has spent years coding in other languages. When he's not behind a computer, you're likely to find Caleb in, on, or occasionally under, a boat.

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.


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 You'll Build

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.

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