I finished the new MongoDB security course M310 this week. The course required quite a bit of Vagrant and networking knowledge that tripped up some folks taking the course. Next course starts February 14th.
- I was reminded recently of a project I did during a DevDays week at WebAssign in 2014. The engineering department wanted to move a large dataset into MongoDB, and my DevDays experiment was to demonstrate the Tungsten Replicator’s role in translating data from MySQL to MongoDB. It worked handily, but was ultimately not implemented because the development teams got bogged down in the Tungsten replication filters desired for data transformation.
I passed the certification test following the MongoDB coursework.
The courseware for MongoDB University is very good quality; some of the better courseware you’ll find for free online or at any university. If you’re interested in learning MongoDB, I wouldn’t point you anywhere else.
