MongoDB 101 - Basics

Monday 9:30AM-12:30PM

@ Room 203


3 hours tutorial



This hands-on tutorial is intended to help you navigate your way through the steps that lead to becoming a MongoDB DBA.

You will start by making sure you know about all the reasons to use MongoDB, and what a typical topology looks like for a replica set - including setting up your first one!

We will not talk about sharding in this session (please see the afternoon one for that). Instead, the focus will be on a few areas:

- What is MongoDB
- How different is MongoDB from MySQL?
- The (most) common MongoDB topologies
- CRUD: data management
- Aggregations
- Import/export
- Backups
- Schema design patterns
- Replica Set upgrade
- Securing your setup
- Common issues: How to detect, verify and address them using logs, Percona Toolkit and PMM
