Summary

In this chapter, we took time to make sure your development environment was properly configured with both the Node runtime environment as well as the MongoDB server. After making sure both were properly installed, we wrote a basic app that utilized both technologies. The app connected to a locally running MongoDB server, and inserted sample records.

Now that the tedious but necessary tasks of setup and installation are out of the way, we can move on to some fun and start learning!

In the next chapter, we will review a primer on the JavaScript language and understand the basics of Node. Then we will review the basic CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations with MongoDB using the Mongo shell.
