Those nice people at 10Gen, purveyors of finely crafted NoSQL database MongoDB, have announced another free online course: MongoDB for Java Developers (M101J), starting in February.

This sounds like it will be a Java version of the Python-based course M101 which is running currently and which I've found to be a good introduction to MongoDB from a developer's perspective. The course isn't too demanding - the estimate of 10 hours a week is probably a little high - but it covers a good range of topics from CRUD operations, indexing and aggregation on MongoDB through to things like replication and sharding. The current course uses Python, but there have been lots of requests for a Java-specific course, although a lot of the material is based on the MongoDB JavaScript API anyway.

And hopefully the Java course won't be interrupted halfway through by a hurricane (10Gen are based in NYC)!

Edit:
The Python version of the MongoDB for Developers course (M101) is running again from 21 January, as is the MongoDB for DBAs course (M102). See https://education.10gen.com/ for more info.

I agree the Python one is very good. They provide good structure and good hands on exercises throughout. I live in NYC as well. I was impressed at how fast they got the videos up after the interruption of not having power at home or an office to work out of!
