Cluster Certification Study Guide Available

By Carsten | November 28, 2007


The words were written, reviewed, re-written, put aside while figuring out how to get them published, then taken up once again and finally delivered to the publisher.

Today, we finally got word of the happy news:

From the cover blurb:

Covering the Certified MySQL 5.1 Cluster Database Administrator exam, this study guide is the one authority to look to when you’re preparing for the test. The book teaches you all the concepts, principles, and techniques that you’ll need to know for the exam, with many practice questions and real-world examples to help you prepare for test day. The book is also an excellent reference guide for your real-world MySQL Cluster administration needs. Whatever your reason for becoming MySQL certified, this book gives you the information you need to help you better understand MySQL Cluster technologies and prepare for and pass the exams.

We have a solid tradition at MySQL of only letting the experts write our certification study guides. This time, it’s not Paul DuBois and Stefan Hinz that deliver their knowledge, but a very selective team of MySQL insiders and community members:

The authors span from Australia over Europe to the East and West coast of the US. Seeing a project like this actually working and producing a great result is really fascinating.

You may already have noticed that the link above does not point to your usual book-pusher. We’re told that the book will be available through internet as well as brick-and-mortar stores, but the magic of instant internet communication is apparently not something that is in use for this process. In the meantime, you can order your copy of the book directly from the publisher.

    Before final publication, we ordered two copies ourselves to be delivered to the Netherlands and Sweden. It took a couple of weeks for the books to arrive.

    If you want the book in time for Christmas, you should probably order soon.
