@HansUXdev I just ran this and gave it a star on GitHub.
We are working on a way we can run MongoDB inside VS code – right inside the browser. Once we get further along with this, would you be interested in helping us develop some of the practice projects for it?
As a side note, I was wondering FCC’s certification has ever been recognized by any educational institutions or states?
For example, when I was teaching at a CTE school in AZ, the state recognized MTA certification but not FCC. Personally, I felt that FCC wasn’t just harder to pass but also much better done which is why I had my students do the the exercises on here as homework. Plus, I figured if they failed the MTA at-least they’d have a backup plan that validate their knowledge to employers.
Now here’s the catch, because it’s not recognized the school doesn’t get as much funding from students passing FCC as they do MTA, etc. This also can put teachers like myself in awkward positions with administrators…
So part of my motivation behind building that repo is to be based upon the following state standards.
STANDARD 17.0 USE AND UPDATE DATA STORAGE AND MANAGEMENT
17.1 Input/output data from a sequential file or database
17.2 Demonstrate creating, reading, updating, and dropping a database
17.3 Demonstrate the proper use of SQL database applications that work with different languages (e.g., MongoDB, Microsoft Access, Oracle Databases, and Code. org’s App Lab)
If you and or other FCC staff find an hour or so of time, I’d like to discuss this more detail and possibly in terms of hosting an event. Check your twitter DM’s when you have a moment and get back to me when you can.
We may seek some sort of formal recognition in the future. Our main goal at the moment is to focus on creating free learning resources and where possible avoiding more bureaucratic processes that would distract us from our mission.
