You'll practice using Mongo Query Language commands including CRUD operations and creating indexes for optimizing those operations. This course also introduces you to the powerful MongoDB Aggregation Framework and leads you through detailed examples as you design and build aggregation features into the course's hands-on web application coding project. You'll become familiar with MongoDB's powerful scaling capabilities as this course presents replication and sharding principles, practices, and design guidelines.
To a certain extent, it can seem as though different programming languages are only suitable for a specified set of tasks, like building apps or analysing data. If you feel as though you need to be fluent in several in order to get anywhere in the coding world, think again. Node.js is a very versatile (and very popular) language that, if you add it to your skill set, is guaranteed to open doors. Create real time web apps, build APIs, streaming applications or CPU intensive apps, and do it all quickly and efficiently.
