Course Description

This course provides an overview of document databases, how MongoDB fits into this world, and why it is so powerful.

Begin with a theoretical introduction to NoSQL databases and a look at how these differ from the traditional relational DBs. Delve into document databases, a specific type of NoSQL database, and cover their strengths and weaknesses. Next, you will look at MongoDB's architecture, how it achieves goals, such as read and write consistency, and where to apply it. You will then move on to MongoDB Atlas, the cloud-hosted version of MongoDB. Discover features, including real-time analytics and monitoring, and consider how these features allow a team to get up and running with a document database. Finally, sign up for an account with Atlas and provision a new cluster on the cloud. You will load your cluster with sample databases and connect the system from a local client application.
