thanks for the complete reply. Yes all of those, that’s a fantastic post for M001 by @SourabhBagrecha, I hadn’t explore it before. My idea was something like that, I just thought FAQs would be better suited to questions like: what is Atlas, what environments MDB runs in, how does the billing work, which products do you offer etc.
A possible idea for topics and how to collaborate
A few different type of posts could be written (not a curated list of ideas):
- practical examples
- further discussion on some topics (example:
explain() command for the first courses or connection string and options, etc).
- Basic projects that a beginner could use and give a general overview of the binaries, this is: a pure JS application where you can interact with the DB both with a driver (through the browser), and compare it using Compass, Mongosh, and maybe some other linux binaries like GET, etc. This obviously for web devs, for other languages there may be better choices.
- Some basic server-side stuff
- Some exactly as the one written for M001 where users need a solution to copy paste or an answer to a very specific recurrent problem.
I am aware this is quite broad and overlaps with other resources, that’s why I said ‘not curated’. But this could be the general space of posts, written ‘on demand’ for topics seen again and again.
Hence, those not-too-lengthy article/guide/examples-pages would help in questions, and maybe show clear relationship with the courses.
As to where to collaborate and how, I’d think of a wiki and a slack channel where maintainers/people helping could interact, that way it’s not just separated individual changes to documents, but there is some discussion and interaction with others that is important for learning imho. Hence the creation of those posts should be itself part of the learning path for some of the members apart from a useful resource.
I am not sure of the idea anyways, I was just curious about it. Maybe there is too much overlap with other resources already, and it probably depends if there are other members interested more than anything else.
