Percona’s “Developer Training for MySQL” is now available via Live Virtual Training

 | July 30, 2012 |  Posted In: Events and Announcements, Insight for Developers, MySQL


Today, Percona announces that Live Virtual Training is now an option for busy professionals.

We set out to develop a training solution that balances the time to deliver the content with the amount of time an attendee can participate in a live virtual training (LVT) session. The goal was to ensure there was still time in the day to allow the attendee to complete his or her work. Percona’s LVT offering extends the days of delivery while reducing the time the attendee needs to be in class each day. Our LVT sessions are a combination of live virtual sessions and remote labs,  blended with online learning. How does this work?

We ask that attendees set aside 2-hours each day for 5-days for the live virtual sessions. This is the time when the Percona instructor delivers the lecture, shows examples, and answers questions. After the live session is over, attendees have a remote lab that will take, on average, 30-minutes to complete. The remote lab is hosted in the cloud and the attendee has 22-hours to finish it. All we ask is that it is done before the live lecture starts the next day. Outside of the live virtual session, the attendee has access to online forums where they can ask questions of the instructor and their fellow students.

For the month of August, you can enroll in one of the LVT sessions for Developer Training for MySQL and save over 35%. The sessions we have scheduled are:

  • August 6, Monday – Friday, 9am – 11am Eastern timezone.
  • August 20, Monday – Friday, 9am – 11am Pacific timezone.
  • August 27, Monday – Friday, 9am – 11am GMT timezone.

To learn more and take advantage of our introductory offer, go to our online store and purchase a seat today.

We will announce availability of other LVT offerings as they become available.
