Free online MongoDB trainingFabian Piau | Tuesday January 1st, 2013 - 05:35 PM
10gen, the company behind MongoDB has finally decided to change its name to MongoDB to avoid confusion. 10gen Education is also renamed as MongoDB University. However, links are still valid and new sessions are organized every year.
Here we are, the new year is here, have you made your resolutions for 2013? What about following some courses on MongoDB? This is what 10gen is offering you.
I have done this training in late 2012. Very interesting and free, this is a really good way to learn NoSQL concepts. The training lasts 7 weeks. At the end of each week, you have some assignments to complete, the last week is dedicated to a final exam. The language used is Python but don’t worry, I’ve never used this language before and the training contains all the necessary explanations, there is no specific prerequisite.
To have a detailed overview of the training, you can download the syllabus.
There is also another training about administration of the MongoDB database. I did not try it, I was only interested in the developer version. New in 2013, the developer-oriented training will be adapted for Java developers, instead of Python.
The following are the dates of future sessions:
- MongoDB for Java Developers > February 26, 2013
- MongoDB for Developers (Python) > January 21, 2013
- MongoDB for DBAs > January 21, 2013
At the end of the training, if you reach a sufficient grade (>= 65%), you will receive a certificate of completion. Last but not least, note that courses are in English.
