Kristina Chodorow’s Book
If you have not heard before about NoSQL, I recommend you to read the documentation link ‘NoSQL Databases Explained’ of the list above in order to achieve the most basic concepts. Next, I think it would be mandatory to read the documentation link ‘What is MongoDB?’.
Also, this post MongoDB Characteristics and Future can help you.
Excellent is the MongoDB University, a very good resource to learn at your own pace throughout short video lessons. Here you can find very clearly explanations while practicing. You will choose the course that best fit your requirements.
I think everybody would take some of these courses.
Download and Play
Of course, you must install MongoDB at your own server and practice, and practice without stopping, all the stuffs you are learning.
Another resource to learn without leaving your home and, also, at your own pace are the specialized blogs like these:
Do not forget to read the MongoDB blog.
I know there are more recent books but I think the book of Kristina is still a must read. Do not miss it!
Other resources from you will get very valuable skills are Webinars, White Papers, Datasheets and Presentations. You can find all of them at the MongoDB Resource Center.
