MongoDB $weeklyUpdate #2: Back for more!

πŸ‘‹ Hi everyone!

Welcome to MongoDB $weeklyUpdate, a weekly digest of MongoDB tutorials, articles, and community spotlights!

Each week, we'll be sharing the latest and greatest MongoDB content, curated by Adrienne Tacke at MongoDB:

We'll be featuring our favorite community content too.


πŸ’‘ ICYMI on the DevHub

Want to find the latest MongoDB tutorials and articles written for developers, by developers? Look no further than our DevHub!

How to Write End-to-End Tests for MongoDB Realm Serverless Apps
Tune in to the third post in the DevOps + MongoDB Realm Serverless Functions = 😍 series! Here, Lauren shares how to write end-to-end tests for apps built using MongoDB Realm.


Using MongoDB Realm WebHooks with Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose

Building an Autocomplete Form Element with Atlas Search and JavaScript

These days, most of us expect forms to have autocomplete functionality. As you may know, building a smooth experience for this, by using regular expressions and accounting for spelling mistakes, can be really tough! Luckily, Nic shows us how simple it can be using MongoDB Atlas full-text search!

πŸ“Ί Last Week on Twitch

We stream tech tutorials, live coding, and talk to members of our community every Friday. Sometimes, we even stream twice a week! Be sure to follow us on Twitch to be notified of every stream!

As developers, we build many tools that make our everyday tasks easier. As a bonus, these tools can sometimes be reused by others who need to accomplish the same tasks. And if it all works out perfectly, you may even get others to do the task for you, using the tool you've built! πŸ˜‰ Sweet!

Join Mike Lynn and Nic Raboy as they live code and build exactly what we described above: a fully functional command-line tool that automates the process of importing data into a MongoDB database! You'll learn about Swift, Swift Package Manager, creating executables, and about our brand new MongoDB Swift Driver.

Episode 14: Dominic Wellington, Director of Market Intelligence at MongoDB, shares his perspective (as someone who is not a full-time developer) on approaching problems with the MongoDB platform as a solution.
