This section walks you through the process of connecting to your existing MongoDB database, or the MongoDB Atlas cluster you created in Setting Up MongoDB Atlas, via Studio 3T.
Studio 3T is available in three editions—Core, Pro, and Enterprise—with Core being the most basic and Enterprise the most robust. The free 30-day trial provides access to all features in the Pro and Enterprise editions and should be sufficient for this course. After that, you can continue to use Studio 3T for free, as long as it’s only for personal, non-commercial use.
Once connected, you will also get a brief introduction to two query building features: IntelliShell and Visual Query Builder.
By the end of this section, you will learn how to:
- Connect to MongoDB from Studio 3T
- Run queries on IntelliShell and Visual Query Builder
What you will need:
- Studio 3T
- Access to an existing MongoDB database or a MongoDB Atlas cluster
