What's new in MongoDB 4.2?
MongoDB is a document database which stores data in flexible, JSON-like documents. MongoDB’s document model is simple for developers to learn and use, while still providing all the capabilities needed to meet the most complex requirements at any scale. Learn what's new in MongoDB 4.2. We'll look at powerful new tools to work with data including sharded transactions, wildcard indexes, and the $merge aggregation stage.
