Course Overview Hello everyone. My name is Mark Scott, and welcome to my course Moving Forward with Mongoose. I am a software development team lead at AutoAlert and Pluralsight author. In this course, we are going to explore what you may encounter when moving forward from Mongoose version 3 up to version 4. Some of the topics that we will cover include breaking changes in Mongoose 4 from previous versions, new features and improvements in Mongoose 4, extending functionality with plug-ins, middleware and hooks, discriminators, and using promise libraries in Mongoose.
