Announcing ScyllaDB University LIVE,  Summer 2022

I’m happy to announce our upcoming ScyllaDB University LIVE Summer Session, taking place on Thursday, July 28th, 8AM-12PM PDT!


ScyllaDB University LIVE is a free, online, half-day, instructor-led training event with exclusive Scylla and NoSQL database content. I invite you to register now and save your spot.

We will have two parallel tracks: a beginners track focused on the basics of Scylla, and a track covering advanced topics such as best practices for CDC, Kafka, Kubernetes, Prepared Statements, and more.

Sessions will be run in parallel, so you can bounce back and forth between tracks or drop in for the sessions that interest you.  The sessions are conducted by some of our leading experts and engineers. They are live and interactive, and we welcome you to ask questions throughout the sessions. Following the training sessions, we will host an expert panel with special guests ready to answer your most pressing questions.

When choosing the topics for the different sessions, we chose a mix of some popular basic material for people new to Scylla, and advanced material, for experienced users that want to deepen their knowledge and see what’s new at the cutting edge of technology.

After the training sessions, you will have the opportunity to take accompanying ScyllaDB University courses to get some hands-on experience, complete quizzes, receive certificates of completion, and earn some exclusive swag.


I’ll start with a quick welcome talk, briefly describing the different sessions and receiving everyone. Afterward, we’ll host two parallel tracks of sessions.
