One error in "Lecture README"

The Chapter 1 README has an error as follows:

You can run this command from your command line:
mongo "mongodb+srv://m220student:m220password<YOUR_CLUSTER_URI>

It should be

mongo "mongodb+srv://m220student:m220password@<YOUR_CLUSTER_URI>



Hi YidingZhang,

Good catch! We will update the README lesson to clarify these instructions.

Thanks for the feedback!


Should <YOUR_CLUSTER_URI> be <>
Can someone please tell me if the whole thing should look like
mongo "mongodb+srv://m220student:m220password@<>

Hi charles_89592,

it should end with, one dummy example: “mongodb+srv://”

the uri after @ sign can be found in your cluster -> click on Connect button -> Choose a connection method -> Connect with the Mongo Shell

Thank you very much Ferdinand. Let me try that.

It looks good for me.


thanks, I should had checked this discussion earlier, this problem made me miss the expire date of the course:sob:

Thank you, Yiding! That was driving me daft!
