I’m excited to announce that I will be teaching MongoDB for .NET developers from DevelopMentor in New York City at MongoDB Inc.’s headquarters on Times Square. The class is March 11, 2014 to March 13, 2014.
If you are interesting in learning MongoDB or bringing MongoDB and NoSQL to your team, this is the perfect opportunity. Not only is it an amazing class, you will have the opportunity to mingle with developers at MongoDB.
Space is limited, so register now.
Contact me directly and I can likely get you a discount on admission especially if you are sending more than one developer.
Here is a little info on the course, see the full course page for all the details.
This course is a deep exploration of building applications in MongoDB (the most popular NoSQL document-database). There are many benefits to choosing a NoSQL database over traditional RDMBSs such as SQL Server or Oracle. This course starts out by looking at why you should choose a NoSQL database in the first place. We will explore the native query language and capabilities of MongoDB. Then we will start working with MongoDB from our .NET applications and look at several topics that explore the advanced aspects of the MongoDB .NET API including MongoDB from .NET, Advanced serialization in .NET, Untyped API in .NET via BSON documents, and more. We will see how to leverage the immense scalability of MongoDB using the aggregation framework, replica sets, and sharding. You will discover how to store and manage files of virtually unlimited size in MongoDB using GridFS. We will discuss how to properly design your entities and documents (both natively and in C#) to take full advantage of what MongoDB has to offer. Finally, we will round out the course with a few topics that you will need to be successful with MongoDB including Server administration for developers and Security and permissions.
Note that some of the topics cover in this course are technology agnostic (for example the native query lesson is equality applicable to .NET developers as well as Python developers) and some are specifically optimized for .NET developers (for example Advanced serialization in .NET).
Why should you choose DevelopMentor’s MongoDB course? At DevelopMentor we have experience building and running large scale MongoDB deployments in .NET including our online learning platform LearningLine and develop.com itself. The course authors work closely with the MongoDB team and are in the MongoDB Masters program. We have been teaching MongoDB in our Guerrilla .NET course for several years. In short, we know what we’re doing with MongoDB and .NET and we’d love to share it with you.
