Excellent lecture. In short period of time, this lecture introduces me to MongoDB effectively. Just a bit of comment about inconsistency how to name collection. Sometimes it is plural and sometimes it is singular. I am quite confused in the beginning.

pretty clear for sb beginner like me, progressive tutorial with hand-on demonstration, just to note that in several moments, the bottom of the screen is hiden by the progress bar.

As a basic, very basic course it is fine, but it does not go in depth into the key concepts. Anyway, can't ask for much more being free.

Muy recomendable para un primer acercamiento o repaso al mundo del noSQL. Explicaciones claras y breves.

Informative course just to understand how mongodb works. Couple of things were not correct. Like, saying the difference between BSON and JSON is just that in BSON even key has quotation mark. This is true for JSON as well.

Short, simple and to the point. Clearly demonstrates the advantages of MongoDB (but not its disadvantages).

Good for beginners, Most interesting part of the course for me is, It has clarified the concept of BSON and JSON practically.

Console command cut off at one point. Also it would be better if you had shown creating a db from scratch rather than hand wave that you already made a "test" db.

In such a short session, I learnt on the basics of mongo database and about the key difference of usage as in the RDMS

No new information at all. All the information given could be easily found anywhere in the internet (stackoverflow or manual). And the way it is given is boring...

A good, beginner friendly course, though it left some details. It should have been more than 1 hour covering more details like how to delete a database and so on.

Sehr guter, verständlicher Kurs, aber mit 32min Dauer leider im Vergleich zu anderen Kursen sehr abgespeckt.

Content is good and instructions so far are easy to follow. May be add some exercises in between for some additional hands-on ( can be done alternatively by the learner himself but to add to that sense of achievement post learning, may be that would help) :)
