MongoDB Training (beginner to expert level)



  • Enthusiasm and determination to make your mark on the world!

MongoDB is a very popular NoSQL database that is fast and scalable. When scalability and speed are required, this database shines. It is a document database which imposes very little and has drivers for many programming languages. MongoDB is a general purpose, document-based, distributed database built for modern application developers and for the cloud era.

Uplatz provides practical training on MongoDB with focus on real-world scenarios and examples. This MongoDB training course will get you familiar with this unique database and arm you with the essential skills to start using mongo to power your software application. This course will teach you how to get mongo running, manipulate and query data, index for speed, and arm you with the essential skills required to start using Mongo.

As table-based databases struggle to cope with an ever-growing variety of data, this MongoDB training course will show you how its document-oriented nature will allow you to quickly build highly scalable applications. You will gain the skills to develop, administer, secure, and scale MongoDB-based applications, and acquire low-cost, data-driven applications with MongoDB as the back-end database.

This MongoDB course is designed to give delegates experience of installing and using the MongoDB database. It 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.

The course ends with some popular interview questions that you will face in a MongoDB database developer/architect/DBA job role.
