The Atlas Search 'cene: Season 1

Welcome to the first season of a video series dedicated to Atlas Search! This series of videos is designed to guide you through the journey from getting started and understanding the concepts, to advanced techniques.

What is Atlas Search?

Atlas Search is an embedded full-text search in MongoDB Atlas that gives you a seamless, scalable experience for building relevance-based app features. Built on Apache Lucene, Atlas Search eliminates the need to run a separate search system alongside your database.
By integrating the database, search engine, and sync mechanism into a single, unified, and fully managed platform, Atlas Search is the fastest and easiest way to build relevance-based search capabilities directly into applications.
Hip to the 'cene
The name of this video series comes from a contraction of "Lucene", the search engine library leveraged by Atlas. Or it's a short form of "scene".
