InnoDB/XtraDB Training in New York City!

Our Santa Clara/San Francisco training went great – 100% of survey respondents said they would recommend the same course to a friend.  I’m pleased to announce that such an opportunity exists – our next training location will be New York City on October 30, 2009.

We’ve booked a training venue in the financial district of Manhattan (90 Broad Street New York, NY 10004), and it seems like a great opportunity to switch from using hotels to teaching in real classrooms.  This means that every student will have a (Linux) computer provided, and the instructor will have a whiteboard to be able to scribble.

Some other changes:

  • The start time will now be 9:30 AM. Thanks to those who gave feedback – this seemed to be one of the biggest concerns. The finish time will be around 5 PM.
  • With the class size going down, we have a little freedom to tweak our format.  One of those changes is that we plan to increase time for exercises in class just a little bit more.

Tickets are $450/student, and we’re continuing our early bird special (a copy of High Performance MySQL 2nd Ed).  Interested in signing up?  Registration is open!

    Are you planning to have a training session in Chicago anytime soon?


  2. Morgan Tocker says:

    Paul – We’ll be scheduling new cities based on demand. Chicago is on our list of candidates, but there may just be a couple of other cities before it.
