Format and Daily Schedule

The training course is provided in classroom style, combining a presentation showing you the fundamentals, and then exercises that you can follow using your laptop. These exercises are optional, but we advise following the exercises as this will give you the best opportunity to learn and ask questions about the product.

Classes start at 9am and finish around 5pm each day. There are frequent breaks during the day, and a break for lunch when a suitable stopping point in the presentation is reached. Unless otherwise noted, lunch is not pre-arranged.

What You Need

You should bring your laptop (any platform) so that you can take part in the various exercises. Training is supported through a number of pre-arranged Amazon EC2 clusters running Couchbase Server. You do not need Couchbase Server installed on your machine, but you do need an SSH client (such as OpenSSH or PuTTY). As you will be accessing remote systems for the exercises, please ensure that ports 22 and 8091 are able to be accessed out of your network.
