ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


MongoDB is a kind of database. Databases are like really big filing cabinets with compartments for different kinds of information. With MongoDB, you can store lots of pieces of information like names, addresses, and numbers in different compartments that can all talk to each other. It's like having a giant filing cabinet and having one compartment for all your friends, one compartment for all your family, and one compartment for all your phone numbers. Whenever you need to find something, you just open the right compartment and look for it. MongoDB helps keep all your data neat and organized.
