We’ve been considering doing some live, online training classes for a while now, and with the demand for Kimberly to teach an Immersion Event on partitioning, we’ve decided to take the plunge and present our first live, online class in January!

Kimberly will be teaching our new IEVLT: Immersion Event on Very Large Tables: Optimizing Performance and Availability through Partitioning live, online over January 9-11, 2018.

Rather than have people try to watch a full day of training at their computer for one of more days, the class will run from 10am to 3pm PST each day, with two 90-minute teaching sessions, each followed by Q&A, and a lunch break. We chose to do this, and to spread the class over a few days, so the times work well for those in the Americas, Africa, and Europe (we might consider doing some time-shifted classes for those in Asia and Australia/New Zealand, depending on demand). We also realize that this is complex, architectural content, so want to give attendees time to digest each day’s material, plus extensive Q&A.

The modules covered will be:

  • Horizontal Partitioning Strategies
  • Partitioned Views
  • Partitioned Tables
  • Tables, Indexes, Keys, and Relationships
  • Implementing the Sliding Window Scenario
  • Key Partitioning Concerns and Considerations
  • Partitioning Techniques Combined
  • Review

The price of the class is US$595 and you can get all the details here.

The class is already half full, as we announced it in our newsletter on Monday. All future live, online training classes will always be announced first in the newsletter, with a discount price available for 48 hours before the class is announced here and linked into the training section of our website, at the regular price.

We decided to start teaching some live, online classes as we recognize that not everyone can travel to our in-person classes, or take that time away from work or family, or simply have travel budget as well as training budget. People also have different ways they learn, some preferring in-person training, some preferring recorded, online training, and some preferring live, online training.

We’ll be doing more of this in 2018, on a variety of topics, so stay tuned for updates (and discounts through the newsletter).

We hope you can join us!
