We believe that LearningLine is the most effective online training for developers, period. Today it gets even better. We are announcing the ability to preview any of our online courses, for free without entering any payment information.

I had a great time discussing these topics with everyone at DevWeek 2013. Thanks to all who attended my sessions. Here are the slides:
Important note: In order to run this demo, you must download MongoDB and start it on your local machine.
