[ANN] Database Agility Online Training - online course begins 8/11
- Tue, Aug 11 - Tue, Sep 22 '09 (6 live sessions)
Agility has allowed development teams to simultaneously reduce cost, increase
the rate at which value is delivered, and improve responsiveness to changing
market forces. As great as this is, things can still get better. Databases have
always been a bottleneck when it comes to change. They are clunky,
mission-critical and (worst of all) they have inertia, the bane of Agility.
True database agility comes from the recognition of how data and programs are
fundamentally different. This course breaks the practices of agile software
development down into a set of principles and then uses those principles to
build up a set of Agile practices in the context of database development.
This online training is true training, including lectures, readings, exercises
and question & answer periods.
