Well, it was sometimes challenging to follow (due to outdated version of several components - e.g deprecated fuctionality of current pymongo) instuctions. In the meantime i completed M001 - basics course from mongodb sie - just because probably from time to time level of difficulty was too overwhelming.

Some (if not all) of the code in this course is outdated, I was not able to start flask app (mflix) out of the box and then just gave up on it (sorry, I value my time) and used mondodb-compass to query the movie database. Some of the material was useful, though. Good for a total beginner who is not afraid to edit half-working code

It is a good course but is outdated. It helps you with critival thinking skills to try and figure out how to import or run the lessons because of it. Taught well just in need of an update though!

The initial setup took very long and the content of the course is dated. This means that you cannot use the setup that is intended to complete the course. For this reason, I have not completed the course. It was an infrastructure issue.

I really liked the course. Speakers tell very accurately, purely, in essence. It’s easy and pleasant to listen to the course. Tasks are based on the basis of lectures and problems with their implementation did not arise. It is good that the tasks are created on the basis of practical examples. Only a lot of time was spent setting up environments for completing tasks and fixing bugs due to incompatibility of versions and updates. Thanks for your course!

It was very crystal clear in providing details to basics of mongodb. Right from simple aggregate pipeline to geospatial and graphs it was a very clean presentation. I remember how i was confused about aggregate pipeline especially and was confused many a times of misplacing the operators of one category in another. Now this course made me very proficient with aggregates.

Course Structure is very impressive. Practice Quiz and Course assignments really gave a complete hands-on on the subject. Thanks much for the tutors. Overall I learned something new and feeling confident about this tech subject. I strongly recommend this course to all MongoDB beginners.

Overall is a great course to start learning mongodb and nosql databases. There are some subjects that I think are explained so briefly for someone who is still becoming familiar with the platform. And there are a few tests that should be updated to python 3.8

Excellent course with lot of practical sessions. I recommend anyone who is looking to surf through MongoDB. It was exciting because I had to go through all the course materials to learn subjects. Looking forward to complete other courses too.

Very good course, you learn important capabilities of MongoDB. I really encourage people to take this course to learn the fundamentals. Note: some of the pymongo functions are deprecated, but 95% of the code works perfectly!
