This weekend, I completed the MongoDB (Python) developer and DBA courses, and I can really recommend them if you are interested in a gentle, yet fairly challenging, introduction to MongoDB.
The courses are run over ~7 weeks with instructional videos being released every week, and every week a couple of exercises must be completed in order to qualify for the final exam. Everything is online, and it’s completely free!
Next round begins on the 1st and 29th of April for the DEV and DBA courses respectively, and you can sign up at 10gen’s education site.
(PS: I got a 90% score on the DEV course and 96% on DBA – does that mean I’m more qualified to be a DBA than a developer..? I hope not!)
