  3. The MongoDB Essentials


The MongoDB Essentials course is designed to give delegates experience of installing and using the MongoDB database. This hands-on course introduces delegates to the concept of a document-oriented database then shows how to set up MongoDB for use. Delegates use the built-in shell and various APIs to build a database access application and manipulate data. We also investigate optimising queries using indexes and aggregating data with MongoDB functions.


Delegates will learn how to:

  • Install the MongoDB database
  • Use the MongoDB shell to access the database
  • Create,retrieve,update and delete data
  • Use aggregation queries
  • Appreciate the APIs used to interface with MongoDB
  • Understand the document based structure of the database
  • Use an API to develop applications
  • Optimise queries with indexes
