To provide a hands-on opportunity to work with real data, this session will center around a web-hosted quiz application which helps students practice math and memorize vocabulary. After experimenting with a small demonstration dataset (generated by each individual during the workshop), attendees will be guided through working with an anonymized dataset in MongoDB. No prior MongoDB experience is required but attendees are expected to download and install MongoDB Community Edition (available for free from mongodb.com) and have a working Python 3 environment of their choice (e.g., IDLE, free from python.org) installed on a laptop they bring to the workshop.
Prerequisites: Attendees are expected to bring a laptop with the following software installed:
- MongoDB 3.4.x Community Edition
- The text editor or IDE of their choice
- A working Python 3 environment of their choice
No prior MongoDB experience is required.
