  • The scope of the course is definitely introductory. It covers all of the basics of what you need to get started using MongoDB, but does not go very deep. I can see that this course could be quite challenging for someone who is new to programming.

    This was my first time-boxed MOOC. The hard deadlines were a key feature for me, because I tend to get really excited about a topic, dive in, burn out, and quit.

    I found myself completing the lectures and homework and being anxious to start on the next week's material. This pushed me into the forums where I was actually able to answer questions and help other students. That felt really nice.

    The guys at Mongo University do a great job explaining the basics (and not so basics) of MongoDB, how it compares to relational data bases (among other things) to a point where I could feel comfortable starting a project on my own using Mongo and being proficient with it.
