Instructor Justin Jenkins shows how to properly index data to increase performance in MongoDB, as well as how to integrate MongoDB with applications in Python, PHP, Node.js, and Golang. Learn about basic server administration, including new content on replication, sharding, security, and backup procedures. Make sure to practice your newfound MongoDB skills using the challenge and solution sets issued along the way.
