Getting Started documentation refers to old version of Node Driver

      Description

      I noticed that a few pages were referring to the 2.x version of the Node Driver. For example:

      var MongoClient = require('mongodb').MongoClient;
      
      var uri = "mongodb://user123:p455w0rd@gettingstarted-shard-00-00-hyjsm.mongodb.net:27017,gettingstarted-shard-00-01-hyjsm.mongodb.net:27017,gettingstarted-shard-00-02-hyjsm.mongodb.net:27017/test?ssl=true&replicaSet=GettingStarted-shard-0&authSource=admin";
      MongoClient.connect(uri, function(err, db) {
        // Paste the following examples here
      
        db.close();
      });
      

      For the 3.x version of the driver, it should look more like:

      const { MongoClient } = require('mongodb');
      
      const uri = "mongodb://user123:p455w0rd@gettingstarted-shard-00-00-hyjsm.mongodb.net:27017,gettingstarted-shard-00-01-hyjsm.mongodb.net:27017,gettingstarted-shard-00-02-hyjsm.mongodb.net:27017/test?ssl=true&replicaSet=GettingStarted-shard-0&authSource=admin";
      
      const client = new MongoClient(uri);
      client.connect().then(async function() {
        // Paste the following examples here
      
        await client.close();
      });
      

      A/C

      1. All links in getting started page (https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/getting-started/), should point to 3.x version of that link
      2. In https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/atlas-free-tier-setup/#connect-to-the-cluster > Node tab > Connect to Cluster > code should be for 3.x version of the driver as stated above
