Couchbase Launches Enterprise Grade NoSQL Training Courses

Couchbase Learning Services Offers New Lab-Intensive Courses That Teach Developers and System Administrators How to Build Scalable, Mission-Critical NoSQL Deployments

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Couchbase, the fastest-growing provider of enterprise class NoSQL databases and technologies, today announced the launch of a new Learning Services program to address the growing need to develop and expand the NoSQL talent pool. As part of the program, Couchbase will begin offering classroom-based courses that will provide multi-day, instructor-led, hands-on training in core NoSQL skills.

Couchbase Learning Services' new courses will focus on teaching students the technical skills they need to build, deploy and manage modern NoSQL databases. The first two courses offered provide students with qualifications that will make them eligible for the highest demand NoSQL job roles: NoSQL application developers and NoSQL server system administrators. Open enrollment begins today, for the new classes starting in June.

"Developer interest in NoSQL database technologies is substantial, but there is still a need to develop the pool of trained and certified talent that enterprises will be looking for to take NoSQL into production," commented Matt Aslett, research director, data platforms and analytics, 451 Research. "The Couchbase Learning Services program will help address this need in relation to both server deployment and application development."

Industry veteran Peter Childers is leading the new Couchbase Learning Services group. Peter has 18 years experience leading growth and change in open source, learning and performance, sales enablement, online strategy and operations. As an early Red Hat employee, Peter designed and launched the renowned Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) training and certification program. Over seven years Peter grew Red Hat's learning services division into a $60 million worldwide operation, becoming the world's largest Linux and open source training business, a leader in performance-based testing, and one of Red Hat's most successful brands.

"Enterprise adoption of NoSQL is on the rise, and as companies increasingly run mission critical, applications on NoSQL infrastructure, they are challenged by a shortage of well trained talent," said Pete Childers, Vice President, Learning and Strategic Development at Couchbase. "By offering the most in depth, comprehensive NoSQL training available today, Couchbase will accelerate the growth and experience of professional, technical resources who are capable of managing high scale, modern infrastructure."

Couchbase Learning Services courses are designed so that students spend at least 60 percent of class time working on instructor-led, hands-on lab training. Students will learn the most important administrative tasks, such as how to install and configure Couchbase, how to run benchmark testing against a real cluster while monitoring its health, backup and restore a cluster, add and remove nodes, and troubleshoot a live cluster. Graduates of Couchbase Learning Services courses will be well trained to support and maintain highly interactive, mission critical NoSQL deployments.

The first application developer course, Developing Couchbase NoSQL Applications, provides training through hands-on Couchbase Server application development experience, which leverages the Couchbase Client Java SDK, Gson/JSON, and the CrudRepository < T > pattern. As part of the course, students will build a production NoSQL application. Through the instructor-led development process, students will learn new skills and gain experience in NoSQL application design, and denormalization with JSON documents, as well as how to fully leverage Couchbase Server features and capabilities.

The first system administrator course, Couchbase NoSQL Server Administration, is a fast-paced, lab-intensive course that makes students immediately productive with Couchbase Server 2.5. During this course, each student will gain comprehensive and relevant skills through hands-on activities, building and administering their own prototype enterprise NoSQL cluster environment. This unique learning experience gives students the opportunity to handle high scale workloads and realistic technical scenarios using best practices for high performance NoSQL server operations.

Registration for the new courses is available now at http://www.couchbase.com/training. The first course sessions start in June 2014.
