If you’ve worked with JavaScript, chances are you’re familiar with the concept of an object. Objects organize a dataset through key value pairs. It’s a simple yet effective solution to creating data structures. MongoDB harnesses the power of the object as well as JSON to create, store, and manage your data in a lightweight manner. It’s also open source!

MongoDB is for application developers who:

  • Are looking to scale a database model quickly
  • Want to create lightweight data structures
  • Already work with JavaScript

This course has a prerequisite

Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of JavaScript equivalent to our JavaScript Programming Fundamentals class, including functions, objects, and data types, as well as the basics of HTML & CSS.
