AquaQ Analytics, an implementation and training partner of Kx Systems, is pleased to announce today the release of a new series of online training courses for kdb+ and q. This latest offering is in addition to the classroom-based training courses and kdb+ consultancy services provided by the company to clients.

The courses, starting with kdb+ Bootcamp and kdb+ Booster, have been designed by some of the most experienced kdb+ consultants globally and can be found at http://training.aquaq.co.uk.

The online material for each course includes a series of instructional videos, downloadable slides, sample q code, and self-assessment questions. Learners who attain a sufficient score in the end of course assessment will be awarded a certificate of completion in the form of a virtual badge.

[icon_list_item type=”arrow-right”]kdb+ Bootcamp is aimed at developers and data analysts who are new to kdb+ and want to obtain a good grounding in the use of the technology. This is the equivalent of a 3-day introductory classroom-based training course in kdb+. [/icon_list_item]
[icon_list_item type=”arrow-right”]kdb+ Booster is a course aimed at end-users who want to learn how to query and analyze data from an existing kdb+ database. [/icon_list_item]

Interested parties can try out the Free kdb+ Taster course to get a feel for the material with no additional commitment. The company will soon be adding the next course which takes users through the AquaQ TorQ Framework for kdb+. This framework, which can be downloaded directly from AquaQ Products, was released to the kx community for free earlier in the year.
[blockquote cite=”Ronan Pairceir, CEO AquaQ Analytics” type=”center”]We are very excited to be releasing our new online kdb+ training resource to the marketplace. Internally in AquaQ Analytics, these courses have significantly decreased the learning time required for our new staff members to become acquainted with the q programming language. Being able to assimilate the information at the learner’s own pace and revisit the material time and again online is invaluable. I also see this as a great training resource for all of the new developers exploring the 32 bit version of kdb+, which is now free for commercial use.[/blockquote]
