Mongodb Quick Start Guide
A fast paced guide that will help you to create, read, update and delete data using MongoDB
- Create secure databases with MongoDB
- Manipulate and maintain your database
- Model and use data in a No SQL environment with MongoDB
MongoDB has grown to become the de facto NoSQL database with millions of users, from small start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. It can solve problems that are considered difficult, if not impossible, for aging RDBMS technologies. Written for version 4 of MongoDB, this book is the easiest way to get started with MongoDB.
You will start by getting a MongoDB installation up and running in a safe and secure manner. You will learn how to perform mission-critical create, read, update, and delete operations, and set up database security. You will also learn about advanced features of MongoDB such as the aggregation pipeline, replication, and sharding.
You will learn how to build a simple web application that uses MongoDB to respond to AJAX queries, and see how to make use of the MongoDB programming language driver for PHP.
The examples incorporate new features available in MongoDB version 4 where appropriate.
