Friends from Yahoo who showed up for an OU program around MySQL.



If there are people out there, who’d wish to know what OU has in offer for professionals well versed in MySQL Database Administration, please refer to the MySQL Performance Tuning and MySQL Cluster course description and schedule.

And for those interested to validate their skill on MySQL DBA, I recommend MySQL DBA Certification exam. Believe me, taming sakila is an experience in itself.

First Global Teach on Transition to Solaris 11 in Bangalore

I’m a movie buff. I love watching paid preview shows of high profile movies. In doing so, there is something more than just satisfying my bloated ego. Perhaps, it’s the pleasure of being a part of that small circle of audience who get to hear a great piece of story first. And so I don’t blame those folks who spend a whole night in a queue to pick up the first delivery of an Apple product and I don’t blame those children standing in a mile long human chain to grab the first prints of a Harry Potter book. They all seem to belong to a league so different.

Do you want to know how it feels to belong such a prestige club? Someone in the picture can tell you that, coz they just managed to get a hands on exposure – the first of its kind globally- to what is expected to be the World’s best Unix OS to be released. Don’t read that line again, you heard it right: the OS is not out yet!

So if you’d love to find you in a club so special and not wait for the fancy release date of 11/11/’11 to get a feel of the best Unix flavour, come join a 2070 minute long training program from Oracle University.

In the meantime, download Solaris 11 going here and have a quick look at the complete set of documentation on Solaris 11 right here.
