This is a podcast episode titled, Ep. 98 Getting Started with Deno and MongoDB. The summary for this episode is: <p class="css-1hzcd52 e1top8006">Deno is a “modern” runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript that is built in Rust. This makes it very fast!</p> <p class="css-1hzcd52 e1top8006">If you are familiar with Node.js then you will be right at home with Deno. It is very similar but has some improvements over Node.js. In fact, the creator of Deno, Ryan Dahl, also created Node and Deno is meant to be the successor to Node.js.</p> <div class="css-3j8jyl e95637j0"> <div class="css-1j4jw9p e95637j1">Jesse Hall joins Michael to talk about Deno and MongoDB.
