MongoDB University Unveils Partnerships with Underrepresented Groups, LinkedIn Learning, Coursera

MongoDB University has announced new partnerships and initiatives to help close the widening software-development skills gap, according to a news release.

MongoDB has established distribution partnerships with Coursera and LinkedIn Learning to make the university’s software development courses more widely accessible, the organization said.

New partnerships with Women Who Code, MyTechDev, and Lesbians Who Tech & Allies will result in free certification for 700 students seeking careers as software developers, part of MongoDB’s efforts to “ensure that people from traditionally underrepresented groups have an opportunity to gain skills with MongoDB Atlas.”

Additionally, the MongoDB for Academia program now offers new benefits for educators such as free MongoDB Atlas credits and certifications, according to the announcement.

Since the relaunch of MongoDB University last November, more than 50,000 developers have accessed its free courses, the institution said, and more than 600 have earned certification as MongoDB software professionals.
