Hello All,
We’re going to be offering some hands-on exercises and challenges. So, if you want to be prepared. It’d be good for you to have a few things in place:

  1. A MongoDB Atlas account and cluster. Sign up for free - spin up a free M0 instance if you don’t have one already. Read more here on how to get started with Atlas.
  2. Download and install MongoDB Compass.
  3. Watch the GDELT Information Live Stream learn about the GDELT data set - alive, dynamic news data set used as the theme for the MongoDB World Hackathon

Let us know if you have any questions. Looking forward to seeing y’all next week!


Hello All,
