Looking for MongoDB in the cloud, but want a fast, free and easy way to get started? Then join us for an hour-long technical webinar with Nosh Petigara and Mark Atwood. In this webinar you’ll learn the fundamentals of how MongoDB's document-oriented data model and query language work. We'll also explore the use cases and applications best suited to take advantage of MongoDB’s scalable and high-performance characteristics. Next, we’ll show you how with a simple sign up and a few minutes of your time, you can spin up an instance, deploy an application plus some popular admin tools, tail logs and execute snapshots using OpenShift’s client tools.

OpenShift is Red Hat’s platform-as-a-service for building, deploying and scaling applications in the cloud. Everything you'll see in the webinar you'll be able to replicate on your own, step by step. In just a few minutes you’ll have a functional MongoDB-backed application running in the cloud. If you are interested in learning how MongoDB works, when to use it and how to get it running in the cloud for free, this webinar is for you.
