We noticed a hole in the SQL Server training market:
We wanted to build a better way to learn complex topics. We’d experimented with video training last year, and we loved it, but we wanted to make it even better:
- Handouts, scripts, quizzes to keep the classes interactive and interesting
- Real-world useful topics, not trivia to pass certification tests
- High definition videos – so you’re not struggling with grainy screenshots
- Mobile-friendly – watch on your phone or tablet (looks fantastic on iPads!)
- Re-watch the training again and again for a year and a half
- One-time pricing that managers will actually approve
We’re really excited to show you what we’ve built. Here’s our first four classes:
How to Think Like the SQL Server Engine – 90 minutes, $29 – You’re a developer or a DBA, and you’re comfortable writing queries to get the data you need – but you don’t understand why they’re unpredictably slow. In this series of videos with Brent Ozar, you’ll learn how the SQL Server engine looks at your indexes and builds your query results.
Virtualization, SANs, and Hardware for SQL Server – 5 hours, $299 – When you’re the one who has to plan, buy, set up, and troubleshoot production SQL Servers, you need to know about hardware, SAN storage, SSDs, virtualization, and more. Microsoft Certified Master Brent Ozar will save you thousands of dollars on bad hardware decisions and wasted troubleshooting time.
DBA Job Interview Question and Answer Kit – 90 minutes, $29 – Good interviewing is not a talent: it’s a skill you build with study and practice. Microsoft Certified Master Kendra Little trains you to be a rockstar in SQL Server database administration job interviews in this set of videos. You get practice video interviews– 100 real world DBA interview questions– and a kit of checklists and exercises to help you land the right job.
How to Tune Indexes and Speed Up SQL Server – 6.5 hours, $299 – You want to become an expert at index tuning, but you can’t find a good start-to-finish training course. In this six hour course packed with demos and quizzes, Microsoft Certified Master Kendra Little teaches you how to design clustered, non-clustered, and filtered indexes to speed up your SQL Server queries– and how to gather the right data to prove your changes made a difference.
We’re really proud of what we’ve built, and we know you’ll enjoy it. Let us know what you think!
