About this book

When it comes to managing a high volume of unstructured and non-relational datasets, MongoDB is the defacto database management system (DBMS) for DBAs and data architects. This updated book includes the latest release and covers every feature in MongoDB 4.x, while helping you get hands-on with building a MongoDB database app.

You’ll get to grips with MongoDB 4.x concepts such as indexes, database design, data modeling, authentication, and aggregation. As you progress, you’ll cover tasks such as performing routine operations when developing a dynamic database-driven website. Using examples, you’ll learn how to work with queries and regular database operations. The book will not only guide you through design and implementation, but also help you monitor operations to achieve optimal performance and secure your MongoDB database systems. You’ll also be introduced to advanced techniques such as aggregation, map-reduce, complex queries, and generating ad hoc financial reports on the fly. Later, the book shows you how to work with multiple collections as well as embedded arrays and documents, before finally exploring key topics such as replication, sharding, and security using practical examples.

By the end of this book, you’ll be well-versed with MongoDB 4.x and be able to perform development and administrative tasks associated with this NoSQL database.

Section 1: Essentials

This section is designed to give you a high-level overview of MongoDB 4.x. In this section, you are introduced to the first of three realistic scenarios, a fictitious company called Sweets Complete, Inc. These scenarios are representative of real-life companies and are designed to show how MongoDB can be incorporated into various types of businesses.

In this section, you'll learn about the key differences between MongoDB 3 and 4. You will learn not only how to install MongoDB 4.x for a future customer, but also how to set up an environment based upon Docker technology that you can use throughout the remainder of the book in order to run the examples. You will also learn basic MongoDB administration using the mongo shell.
