Since early on, MongoDB has been a simple choice for a database when building out a Node.js application. Because of how well they work together, the ecosystem evolved and we ended up with things like the MEAN stack, which has become one of the most popular stacks for Node.js.

Because of the long relationship Node.js and MongoDB have, there’s a lot out there that gets in the way of finding the useful information about how to use Node.js and MongoDB together for an application – be it kicking things off, deploying an app to the cloud, or monitoring and updating an app in production.

Today, I’ve gone through and collected some of the best resources that cover as much surface area as possible to get started with building and deploying apps Node.js and MongoDB.
