Ian Robinson and Jim Webber's Neo4J Tutorial
"Graph databases like Neo4j are an esoteric and powerful member of the NOSQL family. For highly connected data, graph databases can be thousands of times faster than relational databases, making Neo4j popular for managing complex data across many domains from finance to social, and telecoms to geospatial. This intensive two-day tutorial provides a mixture of theory and hands-on practical sessions to demonstrate the capabilities of graph data and the Neo4j database. Find out more here
MongoDB for Developers

MongoDB for Administrators and Operations
course covers everything a database administrator needs to know to
successfully deploy and maintain MongoDB databases and shard clusters.
In addition to deployment and maintenance, course topics will include
diagnosing performance issues, importing and exporting data, and
establishing the proper backup and restore routines. We'll present ideal
hardware configurations and discuss common pitfalls for new
deployments. The course also includes an overview of the MongoDB CRUD
API, the command shell, and the drivers. Find out more here
Richard Low's Cassandra Tutorial
This Cassandra training course covers everything you need to know, to successfully build applications using Cassandra. You will also learn how to deploy, scale and maintain your Cassandra cluster.
In this Cassandra course you will both learn how to develop with Cassandra, including about data model concepts, application design, APIs and drivers, as well as how to administer Cassandra: you will learn all aspects of implementing your first cluster, configuring it, scaling it as well as covering diagnosis, troubleshooting and operational tips.

Russel Winder's Python Workshop
In this 4-day Python Workshop, you will learn both low-level details of Python as well as the idiomatic design approaches in Python. We'll start with the language basics after which we discuss various testing strategies and their rationale. Through lectures, exercises and discussions, we'll introduce Concurrency and Parallelism after which we'll learn about GUI's. We'll then explore Networking, XML processing and Persistence when developing applications with Python. Find out more here
Udi Dahan's Advanced Distributed Systems Design with SOA
This very intensive 5-day workshop will help you take the pain out of designing large-scale distributed systems. New technologies make it easier to comply with today’s communications and security standards, but they won't magically provide you with a robust and scalable system. Join Udi for a course packed with the wisdom of companies like SUN, Amazon and eBay. Tried-and-true theories and fallacies will be shown, helping you to avoid costly mistakes. Communications patterns like publish/subscribe and correlated one-way request/response will be demonstrated, in conjunction with advanced object-oriented state management practices for long-running workflows. If you enjoy deep architectural discussion, join! To find out more, please go here
Brian Sletten's Semantic Web Technologies Bootcamp
Brian Sletten's five day Semantic Web Technologies Bootcamp provides a broad, example-driven and compelling vision of computing's future. Organisations are struggling with data integration solutions that operate at the wrong level of abstraction or are shackled to legacy systems with no idea of how to modernize incrementally. Their service-oriented architectures decompose business processes into services without the ability to identify and protect the information that flows through these services. In this course, you will learn how the technical and business value of Web semantics is available and useful today behind firewalls as well as on the public Web.
