MongoDB has announced that MongoDB University, which was established in 2012 to provide free online courses to train developers and operations engineers, has just surpassed 1 million registrations.
MongoDB began public trading in late 2017, and has put a strong focus on the developer community and making it easier for them to use the platform.
“As an open source company, MongoDB has always placed a high value on fostering and giving back to our community. Early on, we realized that a great way to do this is by making expert MongoDB training easily and freely available to anyone, anywhere in the world," said Shannon Bradshaw, vice president of education, MongoDB.
MongoDB University currently offers 18 free courses—from introductory to master level—on subjects including application development, database administration, security, and data analytics.
MongoDB University launched official MongoDB Certifications in 2013, enabling candidates to become MongoDB Certified as a developer and database administrator (DBA) by passing one of the certification exams. In addition, the MongoDB Diversity Scholars program was started in 2016, enabling free access to on-demand MongoDB University courses for 6 months in addition to a fee waiver for both the Developer and DBA certification exams.
