Learn everything you need to know to get started building a MongoDB-based app. This course will go over basic installation, JSON, schema design, querying, insertion of data, indexing and working with language drivers. In the course, you will build a blogging platform, backed by MongoDB. Our code examples will be in Java.
After completing this course, you should have a good understanding as to how applications are built on top of MongoDB using Java. This course should also prepare you to take the developer certification associate exam. Register for next exam session to become a MongoDB Certified Professional.
To take this course you should be familiar with Java. Knowledge of relational databases is not required.

How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
A very decent introduction to Mongo. The homework and mid-lecture questions were well chosen and fairly graded, as was the exam.
My initial impression was that there would be excessive time spent on additional, unrelated frameworks, like Spark and Freemarker. But this was wrong- only a very small amount of time as spent on them, and the class's focus was right on target, as far as I'm concerned.
I'm a Java serve developer integrating Mongo as our primary data store, for what it's worth.
