The Boston MySQL Meetup Group Message Board › Former MySQL (and Sun and Oracle) staff Senior Trainer available for Boston

Former MySQL (and Sun and Oracle) staff Senior Trainer available for Boston area on-site classes

A former member
Post #: 1
David Swain, former staff trainer at MySQL AB, Sun and Oracle, offers newly prepared courses on MySQL 5.5 for current and new friends in the MySQL Community. Since he is based in Bedford, NH, these classes will be most affordable for businesses in the Greater Boston Area where his travel costs would be the lowest. Professional training for your new and developing MySQL staff can still be affordable!

In his former job, David was the Lead Instructor, guiding course content under development, for a number of courses, including "MySQL for Developers", "Advanced Stored Procedures" and a variety of 1- and 2-day Virtual Courses. He also contributed significant content to "MySQL for Beginners", "MySQL for Database Administrators" and "MySQL Developer Techniques". As an instructor, he often had the highest utilization, received among the highest evaluation scores and was frequently requested for additional sessions or for custom on-site classes by former students.

Since leaving Oracle on May 3, 2010, David used the time of his "non-compete" period to completely rebuild courseware for a number of important introductory and intermediate-to-advanced MySQL topics and is now prepared to offer classes using this new material. Since no original MySQL instructors work for Oracle University in the US and all the others have gone off to jobs teaching other software, David is your best source for experienced MySQL instruction here.

In addition to his own offerings, David is also the sole provider for MySQL instruction for SkySQL AB in the US. They offer public classes using their own courseware, developed under Max Mether, former head of MySQL Curriculum Development for MySQL AB and Sun. SkySQL is a company that now employs a large percentage of the original support team of MySQL AB worldwide - and 100% of their staff is from the original MySQL team that received such high praise from the MySQL Community worldwide in years past. Again, they are your best bet for seasoned MySQL support.

David's CV and recommendations for him as a database and MySQL instructor and consultant are available on LinkedIn. His LinkedIn page, as well as his email address and telephone number are available in his Meetup profile. Contact him through any of these means for more information.
