Building Serverless Apps With MongoDB Atlas

English training

MongoDB has been around for a while. Perhaps you’ve even tried it in the past. But MongoDB Atlas is more than a database. Atlas, the full developer data platform, can help you build applications faster than ever. This hands-on workshop will teach you how to use MongoDB Atlas's features to build serverless applications. This workshop will start from the basics of data modelling in MongoDB, all the way to building an application that uses the Atlas application services.

This is a hands-on workshop, so expect to write code. Some basic JavaScript knowledge could help, but is not required.

Développement d'applications serverless avec MongoDB Atlas

English training

La base de données MongoDB est un produit bien connu des développeurs logiciels. Peut-être l’avez-vous même essayé dans le passé. Par contre, vous ne saviez peut-être pas que MongoDB Atlas est beaucoup plus qu’une simple base de données. Atlas est une platforme de données pour les programmeurs qui permet de développer des applications plus rapidement que jamais auparavant. Dans cet atelier pratique, vous apprendrez comment utiliser tous les éléments de la plateforme pour créer des applications serverless. Cet atelier commence avec les bases de la modélisation de données sous MongoDB, et montre comment créer des applications qui utilisent les fonctionalités de Atlas Application Services.

Il s’agit d’un atelier pratique, donc préparez-vous à coder. Une connaissance de base de JavaScript pourrait aider, mais n’est pas nécessaire.
