November 25th: We are live!
What a ride this has been. The course is now ready. For details about the difference between Standard and Premium, you can visit the website here. The TLDR is that, if you're using this course to solve business challenges (e.g. headaches with data), you want the Premium package because it will provide you with credits & access to two private webinars with myself and a senior engineer at SingleStore. If you're mostly interested in learning a new skill for personal reasons, the Standard package is great. I really hope you enjoy the course.
Launch discount ends 9th December.
As a lot of you know, I've been using an industry-leading database solution called SingleStore to process and query billions of rows at my analytics company, Fathom Analytics, for nearly two years. I've also written multiple blog posts about how amazing it is (list at the bottom).
Following the success of these articles, I've received lots of messages from people telling me about their problems scaling RDS (connection limits, poor performance, etc.) and just general questions about how they can use a solution built for scale. Aurora Serverless V2 is good, and various other managed MySQL services are good, but they will not perform like SingleStore.
What is SingleStore?
If you've never heard about SingleStore, here's the 5-second pitch. SingleStore is a MySQL wire compatible database solution (meaning you can use regular SQL queries & the query builder in Laravel) that allows you to build database tables in memory and on disk. It's used by companies such as NASA, Uber, Sony, Cisco, Intel, Wayfair, Akamai, Goldman Sachs, Hulu, and Fathom Analytics (my company).
Who is this course for?
This course is for people with growing databases who want to keep them fast, people who aren't getting the performance needed with their current solution, and those who are tired of the headaches MySQL brings. For those using RDS at scale, you've likely run into IOPS headaches, connection limits, slow time to add indexes to tables, slow aggregations, slow filtering and performance degradation over time. Many people keep increasing their spending on RDS, but they're just not seeing a valuable performance jump.
What will I learn from this course?
You will learn how SingleStore is different from MySQL, how to bring it into your application and how to scale your queries and data.
Can I pay with PayPal?
Absolutely. We use Gumroad for payment processing, so you can pay with your card or Paypal.
Can I get an invoice?
You most definitely can. Gumroad sends you an email when you make a purchase, and there's a link in the email for you to print an invoice.
Is SingleStore ready for production?
Yes, the software is 10+ years old and is used by companies such as Siemens, Akamai, Dell, Cisco, Disney, Goldman Sachs, Hulu, Kelloggs, Uber, Sony and, of course, my company Fathom Analytics.
What if I decide that it's not for me?
No problem. I'll refund you in full if you email email@example.com within 7 days of purchase, no questions asked.
