Community Day Trivia #6: What were the first two MongoDB University Courses?

We’ll be posting trivia challenges throughout the Community Day event!

The best answer for each challenge will be marked as a solution and earn the poster a promo code for $100 of Atlas credits and a Community Day 2021 Trivia Winner forum badge that can also be used as a title on the forums.

A great answer will include some information such as a link to more information or a tip on how you figured out the solution.

You can help us decide the best answer to a trivia challenge by liking great responses! To give everyone a chance at earning Atlas credits, we will use “have you already had a trivia solution accepted” to break ties in favour of those who haven’t had a solution yet.

@Gopi_Sant @Sal_DiStefano Both of your answers sound plausible, but it would be great to have a reference to confirm for sure :wink:

@Sal_DiStefano The links you shared are 404 (page not found), but there are active urls that would confirm if those are previous course numbers that have been retired.

@Stennie @sal_Distefano.

Here are the references from my course completion. M101P MongoDB for Developers and M101J MongoDB for Java

After that M102 MongoDB for DBA, M101JS MongoDB for NodeJS.


Hi @Sal_DiStefano,

I accepted your answer as closest to correct but was hoping for a few more details to make a great answer and confirm these were the original courses.

The first two MongoDB University courses were M101 (MongoDB for developers) and M102 (MongoDB for DBAs), launched in October 2012. These 6 week courses were initially using MongoDB 2.2 (the latest MongoDB server release as at the time of launch) and went through several refreshes before eventually being retired.

Updated versions of the original learning outcomes (including expanded content) can be found in the MongoDB University learning paths:

You can hear more about the current University curriculum from some of our Curriculum Services Engineers: Community Day Session #5: 1:30pm EDT - MongoDB University Squad with @SourabhBagrecha and @Kushagra_Kesav.
