Using MongoDB with Node.js

Video description

Using MongoDB with Node.js is the fourth title in Wes Higbee's explanation of all things Node. This course details how to store data - as documents - coming from your JavaScript apps into MongoDB.

There are two popular approaches to interacting with MongoDB: The native driver and Mongoose. In this video, you'll learn about both of these, when to pick one over the other, and something else equally important (and often neglected): How to write maintainable asynchronous MongoDB communications code. Web app developers with a strong command of JavaScript, those wanting to incorporate server-side programming into their development, and those wanting to better understand NoSQL database technology will appreciate this step-by-step guide to using MongoDB with Node.js. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.

  • Understand how the native Node.js MongoDB driver works
  • Learn to use the Mongoose ODM to communicate with a MongoDB server
  • Compare asynchronous coding styles: callbacks, promises, generators and async/await
  • Learn how to serialize JS objects to documents stored in MongoDB.
  • Explore basic CRUD operations with MongoDB.
  • Practice debugging, error handling, logging, and monitoring.
