To meet the growing demand for education around distributed SQL, database as-a-service (DBaaS), and cloud-native development, we are pleased to announce new learning paths and professional certifications in Yugabyte University.

Supporting the YugabyteDB Community

Since its launch in 2021, Yugabyte University has garnered over 13,000 students and 21,000 course enrollments from data practitioners and developers around the world. Students have also received over 2,400 professional certifications from Yugabyte University.

“We launched Yugabyte University as an accessible platform for learning and enablement,” said Karthik Ranganathan, co-founder and CTO, Yugabyte. “Yugabyte University is meant for developers, architects and database administrators at any level to find the resources they need to embrace distributed SQL and cloud-native applications in their organizations. It has been exciting to see the program grow over the past year, and we look forward to the new innovations that will come from our expanded certification program and new learning paths.”

New Learning Paths

Yugabyte University now offers four new learning paths designed to ensure YugabyteDB users across all experience levels can expand their skill sets and harness all the benefits of distributed SQL:

Yugabyte University courses include hands-on labs that feature a browser-based, interactive shell for YugabyteDB Managed. The interactive shell makes it easy for students to complete labs and build applications without having to install YugabyteDB.

Yugabyte University is part of Yugabyte’s holistic enablement program for enterprise customers who have embraced distributed SQL. As businesses across multiple industries including financial services, telecommunications, retail and e-commerce adopt cloud-native architectures, the need for database architects and administrators is growing. Technical enablement can eliminate barriers and accelerate the adoption of new technologies, like distributed SQL, that offer a competitive edge.

By completing courses and earning professional certifications Yugabyte University students can hone their skills to increase their value to their organization and accelerate their career advancement.

Distributed SQL Summit Events

In addition to offering free training, Yugabyte hosts regular Distributed SQL Summit (DSS) events that bring together developers, database administrators, architects, and technology leaders to discuss, collaborate, share ideas, and learn with fellow app developers and database practitioners.

The most recent DSS Day (Amsterdam) was hosted in collaboration with KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe and brought together the Kubernetes community to learn how distributed SQL databases are shaking up the decades-old regime of traditional RDBMS.
