Begin this course by exploring index policies in Cosmos DB and how these influence the performance of queries, as well as how many request units are consumed by them. Next, you will modify the default index policy and explicitly define the fields of the items which must be included in the index and how fields can be left out of it. Then, you will focus on composite indexes and run various types of queries against your data, including aggregation queries. You will build a Python application that can connect to and query a Cosmos DB container using the azure-cosmos package and various interfaces, such as a DatabaseProxy and ContainerProxy. Finally, you will create a new Cosmos DB account, this time using the MongoDB API, in order to observe the similarities between MongoDB API and MongoDB server.
