This article will guide you on the basic operations that you can perform on #MongoDB #tables or #collections. By following the very same syntax and operations, you can even write other complex #queries that can easily serve the purpose of your particular task.

MongoDB is almost 100 times faster than traditional database system like RDBMS, which is slower in comparison with the #NoSQL databases. MongoDB supports deep query-ability i.e we can perform dynamic queries on documents using the document-based query language that's nearly as powerful as #SQL.

1. Finding the current database you're in. db.

2. Listing databases. show databases. 

3. Go to a particular #database. use <your_db_name>.

4. Creating a Database.

5. Creating a Collection. 

6. Inserting #Data.

7. Querying Data. 

8. Updating documents.
