Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning MongoDB Tutorial," a course designed for database administrators interested in learning MongoDB's NoSQL, document-oriented management system.
Unlike conventional, table-based relational databases, MongoDB is free and open source, and its unique design works with documents instead of objects, facilitating more efficient data interaction in certain types of applications. MongoDB's ability to be distributed and scalable works particularly well in cloud infrastructures.
Infinite Skills' Learning MongoDB Tutorial offers a comprehensive introduction to setting up and working with this powerful database framework, including installation, running queries, and database management.
Course author Doug Bierer has more than 14 years of experience in web development using MongoDB, PHP, Perl, Java and other programming languages. A contract developer since 1980, Bierer has developed websites for several Fortune 500 companies and small businesses. In addition to lecturing at the university level, he currently runs UnlikelySource.com and does contract work for Zend Technologies, the current home of the PHP language.
He then explores in-depth how to create, read, update, and delete operations, advancing into a chapter on data modeling, where he explains one-to-one relationships, one-to-many relationships, tree structures, and parent-child relationships.
The course closes with a chapter on MongoDB database management, covering topics such as security, user management, replication, troubleshooting, and backing up.
"MongoDB has all the advantages of NoSQL databases," Bierer explains, "meaning it does not have the overhead required to maintain complex relationships as we see with most databases."
Free demo videos and a full list of course contents can be found on the Learning MongoDB training page of the InfiniteSkills website: http://www.infiniteskills.com/training/learning-mongodb.html.
Infinite Skills offers its Learning MongoDB Tutorial either as a DVD or a direct download from the company website at a retail price of $99.95. All titles and formats are compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems. Shipping is available around the globe. Additionally, Infinite Skills tutorials are supported by project files which correspond to examples in the videos, allowing users to work alongside experienced instructors right on their computer or iPad.
