I finished the new MongoDB security course M310 this week. The course required quite a bit of Vagrant and networking knowledge that tripped up some folks taking the course. Next course starts February 14th.
- New MongoDB University courses! I’ve raved about the MongoDB courseware before. Happy to see some new courses, highly relevant to ops. I’ve signed up for these: M310: MongoDB Security Learn how to use MongoDB’s native and third-party integration security features and resources. This course will provide you with the knowledge to create secured deployments of MongoDB for production-ready environments. M210: MongoDB Performance Learn how to optimize the performance of your MongoDB deployment.
Quite excited about this new MySQL ecosystem conference, this one specifically about the primary fork of MySQL, MariaDB. (Or you may think of it as the original MySQL, pre-Oracle fork.) Equally excited it’s on the East Coast.
I had the pleasure of attending a presentation by Yoshinori Matsunobu at the NYC MySQL Meetup, and learning about the MyRocks engine optimized for space and writes.
I finished the 4-day Linux Foundation course LFS252 Essentials of OpenStack Administration this week.
I took the Linux Foundation course LFS426 Linux Performance Tuning – because a database problem is often a system problem. (And haven’t stopped recommending Linux Foundation courses highly since.)
I passed the certification test following the MongoDB coursework.
The courseware for MongoDB University is very good quality; some of the better courseware you’ll find for free online or at any university. If you’re interested in learning MongoDB, I wouldn’t point you anywhere else.
