MongoDB for Python Developers

The MongoDB for Python Developers training course teaches Python programmers how to work with and leverage MongoDB to create big-data solutions.

Aimed at existing Python developers, the course skips any formal introduction of Python, and jumps right into MongoDB concepts. Once the MongoDB concepts are covered, the course then transitions into writing Python applications that leverage Mongo. The course concludes with an examination of commonly used related Mongo topics such as GridFS.
