Introduction to MongoDB

MongoDB or you might hear people call it Mongo, is one of the most popular NoSQL database solutions to date.

It is open-source, free to use for personal and commercial use, and extremely flexible.

Programming languages such as Go ( I have a short example video of interacting with MongoDB using Go ), Javascript, and many others can interact with MongoDB using third-party modules, often being official modules from the MongoDB team.

You can read more about it here.

Here is a summary of some of its features:

  • Stores data as JSON documents in schema-less collections.
  • Uses Javascript as its query language.
  • Has a lot of feature parity with traditional SQL databases.
  • Boasts amazing horizontal scaling using replica sets.

Here is some additional information and tutorials about MongoDB from me:

Inserting Documents


I will be adding a lot of posts and tutorials around MongoDB in the future. As I post them, I will add them here.
