Getting Started with MongoDB

To get started and explore MongoDB, try the 5 minute interactive tutorial that connects you to a MongoDB Atlas cluster and walks you through inserting, querying, and deleting data in MongoDB.

You do not need to install anything. Click the Launch button of the in-browser Integrated Development Environment to start the tutorial.

After completing the tutorial, see Getting Started with Atlas to deploy a free cluster without any installation overhead.
