Question

Using D.O. to teaching a data management course?

This is just a general query, to understand if there are any resources out there to help design a course on data management using digital ocean?

awseducate.com provides some useful starter packs so I was wondering is there anything similar for digital ocean?

Any help or guidance much appreciated.

Thanks

Barry

Hi Barry,

Thank you for your question. We are building out many resources for educators at this time and have a variety of lesson plans, eBooks and curricula (here is one on System Administration). All of the tutorials that are available on Community can also be used as open educational resources. You may find some of what you are looking for under our Databases and Data Analysis tags. Our Product Docs can also support you in terms of data management specifically for DigitalOcean products.

For working with students, I would recommend using a Team account that you control. This would mean you can turn off Droplets and other services as the administrator, and students don’t need to input a credit card.

If you are willing to share more about what you would like to see and where there may be gaps, I would be happy to take it back to the team. I can also contact you via email to see if we can support you further, let me know if that is ok!

Thanks! Lisa

Hey @bquinn,

If I understand correctly, the answer to your question would be to sign up for DO’s newsletter so you get updates on the regular webinars (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorial_series/webinar-series-deploying-managing-containerized-workloads-in-the-cloud) they are performing. You can also count the community tutorials (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials) as a source of such information - a lot of educational stuff.

I hope this helps.

Best, Dennis
