The MongoDB Data API lets you read and modify data in MongoDB Atlas over HTTP. You don't need any additional MongoDB drivers, libraries, or connection strings; just a standard HTTP client and a valid API key.
The Data API's endpoints expose actions that are similar to the standard query methods available in MongoDB drivers. You can call them to create, read, update, delete, or aggregate documents in your cluster.
Sumedha Mehta is the Product Manager responsible for the Data API and she joins Michael for a brief introduction to the product, how it works as well as its benefits.
