Percona Live Crash Courses: for MySQL and MongoDB!

Percona Live

Percona Live Crash Courses for MySQL and MongoDB

The database community constantly tells us how hard it is to find someone with MySQL and MongoDB DBA skills who can help with the day-to-day management of their databases. This is especially difficult when companies don’t have a full-time requirement for a DBA. Developers, system administrators and IT staff spend too much time trying to solve basic database problems that keep them from doing their day job. Eventually the little problems or performance inefficiencies that start to pile up  lead to big problems.  

In answer to this growing need, Percona Live is once again hosting Crash Courses for developers, systems administrators, and other technical resources. This year, we’ve compacted the training into a single day, and are offering two options: MySQL 101 and MongoDB 101!

Don’t let the name fool you: these courses are led by Percona MySQL experts who will show you the fundamentals of MySQL or MongoDB tools and techniques.  

And it’s not just for DBAs: developers are encouraged to attend to hone their database skills. Developers who create code that can scale to match the demands of the online community are both a resource and and an investment.

Below are a list of the topics covered for each course:

MySQL 101 Topics

MongoDB 101 Topics

  • Schema Review 101: How and What You Should Be Looking at…
  • Choosing a MySQL High Availability Solution Today
  • MySQL Performance Troubleshooting Best Practices
  • Comparing Synchronous Replication Solutions in the Cloud
  • Cost Optimizations Through MySQL Performance Optimizations
  • SQL with MySQL or NoSQL with MongoDB?
  • MongoDB for MySQL DBA’s
  • MongoDB Storage Engine Comparison
  • MongoDB 3.2: New Features Overview

 

Attendees will return ready to quickly and correctly take care of the day-to-day and week-to-week management of your MySQL or MongoDB environment.

The schedule and non-conference cost for the 101 courses are:

  • MySQL 101: Tuesday April 19th ($400)
  • MongoDB 101: Wednesday April 20th ($400)
  • Both MySQL and MongoDB 101 sessions ($700)

(Tickets to the 101 sessions do not grant access to the main Percona Live breakout sessions. Full Percona Live conferences passes will grant admission to the 101 sessions. 101 Crash Course attendees will have full access to Percona Live keynote speakers the exhibit hall and receptions.)
