As promised earlier, we have now officially launched MongoDB and Python training classes. The first batch of classes will be offered between August 7-10, 2012, with early bird registration closing on July 31. We'd love to have you attend one or more classes, so read on for more info!
The first two days of training (August 7-8) will be a developer training class, focused on bringing you from little or no MongoDB background to a proficient PyMongo developer. This is the class I'd recommend you take if you're completely new to MongoDB.
The third day (August 9th) consists of a case study in using MongoDB for content management systems, from schema and index design to common operations to scalability and sharding. Students in this class should already have a basic knowledge and proficiency with MongoDB.
The final day (August 10th) consists of a case study in using MongoDB for operational intelligence, giving you lots of information on using MongoDB for various types of analytics. Of all the talks I've given on MongoDB, the most popular by far was the one on "real time analytics," so I anticipate this class might sell out quickly.
Each class is limited to 12 participants in order to make sure I can spend a good bit of time addressing the exact training needs of the attendees. The early bird price (again, ending July 31st) for the 2-day training is $800, with each of the one-day classes only $400 each. I'd love to see you there, so please sign up soon!
Oh, and one more thing: You'll notice that the venue is still "Atlanta Metro Area, TBD". I currently have a facility we can use in Roswell, Georgia, just north of Atlanta, but if it turns out we have a lot of out-of-town attendees, we'll end up moving the class to a location that's closer to the downtown area.
