Getting the Most out of ScyllaDB University LIVE Summer School 2022

ScyllaDB University LIVE Summer Session for 2022 is right around the corner, taking place on Thursday, July 28th, 8AM-12PM PDT!


As a quick reminder, ScyllaDB University LIVE is a FREE, half-day, instructor-led training event, led by  our top engineers and architects. We will have two parallel tracks – a getting started track focused on NoSQL and ScyllaDB Essentials and a track covering advanced ScyllaDB strategies and best practices. Across the tracks, we’ll have hands-on training and introduce new features. Following the sessions, we will host a roundtable discussion where you’ll have the opportunity to talk with ScyllaDB experts and network with other users.

Participants who complete the training will have access to more free, online, self-paced learning material such as our hands-on labs on ScyllaDB University.

Additionally, those that complete the training will be able to get a certification and some cool swag!
