Great info, Derick obviously is very knowledgeable and approachable. I and others apparently missed some critical piece of the initial setup, so it was very difficult getting going with the first exercise in the time allotted. However, the concepts were clear enough, and I'm excited to try Mongo in my next project.

I thought this was pretty informative. My only complaint was the large overhead of getting setup to do the tutorial steps without having come from a MongoDB environment.
