Intro to MongoDB

Lauren Schaefer    Ken Alger   

Does NoSQL feel like a bunch of NoSense to you? If so, you don’t want to miss this workshop! We’ll walk you through the basics of how to use the open source database MongoDB.

We’ll begin with an overview of how data is stored in MongoDB and compare that to the table-based (relational) structure you may be used to. Then we’ll get hands-on! You’ll create a database and learn how to perform the basic CRUD (create, read, update, and delete) operations. Then you’ll load a large dataset into your database so you can see how to explore it and understand what schemaless data really looks like. We’ll wrap up with some tips and tricks, so you will leave the workshop feeling confident you’re ready to use MongoDB when you build your next app!
