New Year, Newly Trained You!

Many people love to use the new year as an opportunity to set goals for self-improvement. Whether it’s improving health or taking a chance on yourself to go for those big career goals you’ve been putting off.

If you’ve been looking for the perfect opportunity to either learn DNS & BIND or refresh your knowledge, we have the perfect series of courses to bring you up to speed.

For 20 years Men & Mice Training has helped professionals in Network Management, including executives, System Administrators, Network Architects and Network Managers learn principles, best practices and strategies for DNS and BIND.

Why learn DNS?

Nothing in the Digital Era happens without DNS. Business functions and services are increasingly, exclusively online, as are nearly all areas of our lives. DNS makes networks work. If you want to know how to keep things running smoothly online, then it helps to fully understand DNS.

Suffice to say, DNS is important.

Why learn from Men & Mice?

It'd be easy to point to our track record (since 1990!) of developing DNS, DHCP, and IPAM software solutions to highlight why we feel (and our students feel) that our DNS & BIND courses are exceptional. Since 1999, we’ve offered independent public and onsite private training to professionals and organizations such as:

  • Top Level Domain (TLD) operators,

  • DNS registrars,

  • Governments,

  • Universities,

  • Enterprise and SMB businesses

Our instructors and program coordinators value comprehensive, practical teaching methods. As such, our course materials are decidedly not "animated user manuals" - they cover DNS contextually, with real world examples and hands-on labs.

Our 2019 resolution was to augment our course materials to include new sections on DNS Cookies, Response Policy Zones (RPZ), Response Rate Limiting (RRL), and DNSTAP as well as other refinements including the introduction of new debugging labs. This resolution aligns with our ongoing commitment to ensure our courses are relevant to real wold scenarios and stay up-to-date.

In short, you'll learn what DNS is, what it means today, and why having this knowledge is valuable to your own career growth and to your company’s network.

Training designed for context

Men & Mice offers two main training paths: DNS & BIND Week (DNSB-W) and DNS & BIND Advanced (DNSB-A).

The former covers the fundamentals, with practical training and tactical application.

For those peripherally working with DNS, or looking to learn the basics, the first three days of DNS & BIND Week is available as DNS & BIND Fundamentals (DNSB-F).

The latter DNSB-A, and the security focused DNSSEC & BIND that we will offer again this year, teaches the ins and outs of DNS mastery, and the subsequent use cases and resulting business values.

Even experienced network professionals get value out DNS & BIND Week, like this student who took our course in 2019:

"I've been using the internet since the days of gopher in 1995.  And running networked linux systems since 1997. But this course refreshed my understanding of the fundamentals of the internet more than anything else I've done in the last 21 years."
