[Community Cafe] TUTORIAL: The MERN Stack Evolved: Express to MongoDB Realm

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Calling all MERN/MEAN developers! This fun, hands-on workshop is for YOU!

As MongoDB continues to expand our database platform, we offer developers an opportunity to offload more and more of their runtime management to us. Specifically, management of MongoDB can be offloaded to MongoDB Atlas - our database-as-a-service, while the management of the Express back-end can be offloaded to MongoDB Realm - our serverless platform.

Leveraging MongoDB Atlas and MongoDB Realm in this way makes it incredibly easy to run web applications in a serverless environment. Utilizing this cloud-native and serverless approach will help you simplify your development and build your apps faster — without worrying about managing and scaling the backend.

In this workshop, we will start with a basic MERN To-Do app. Then with minimal code, we will implement some basic APIs to offload more and more of the server-side functionality and runtime management to MongoDB. In the end, you’ll leave with a fully managed, auto-scaling application hosted entirely for free with MongoDB. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is!

And as a bonus, you will also have a great path forward to take advantage of other fantastic features such as MongoDB Charts and MongoDB Atlas Search.

Course Prerequisites: Attendees need only bring their laptop with the below installed:
  • Git
  • npm
  • nodemon
  • Your favorite JavaScript editor
