In the first half of 2018, Men & Mice Training taught courses in five countries with students flying in from across time zones and from other continents. Participants came from three different ccTLDs, from national governments, and from both major enterprise corporations and smaller institutions.

We are proud of our reputation for delivering exceptional training courses, positive student feedback, and humbled by the effort that people make to attend. However, we're committed to making attending easier.

New DNS & BIND fall 2018 courses added

ddi_menandmiceFive new public courses have been added to our schedule this fall, from September through November 2018.

We've also begun soliciting student feedback on where we should hold our next courses. Based on initial feedback, classes have already been scheduled for two locations where we've previously never taught: Denver, Colorado, USA, and Geneva, Switzerland.

Our most popular public course is DNS & BIND Week (DNSB-W).

DNS & BIND Week is ideal for anyone just starting in the DNS world, but most commonly attended by those knowledgeable about DNS, and by experienced BIND administrators. Those with previous skills report that the start of the course, which assumes nothing, fills in gaps in their knowledge and corrects misconceptions, and the course moves on to unknown topics and new material. All Men & Men courses are hands-on, full of laboratory exercises. 

If you want to get trained ASAP, this is your chance.

Who attends: Those who work peripherally with DNS. After the course, many wish they had attended the entire week. For them, we offer DNS & BIND Advanced (DNSB-A), which is the final two days of DNS & BIND Week.

Looking ahead, in 2019 we plan to begin offering our three day DNSSEC & BIND (DNSSECB) course publicly. It is currently only available for private, on-site corporate training.

Thinking of doing DNS better?

I train, therefore I am

Or that’s what Descartes may have said if he’d been thinking his thoughts in 2018.

Mind you, this blog is not about thinking and it’s not about physical training either, like running or wife carrying or stuff like that. It’s more about training as in training for the mind. Learning useful things. Like how to configure BIND, debug DNS, figure out TSIGs or what DNSSEC can do for your network. Basically, the kind of training that helps you build a leaner, stronger, fitter network, and create the system resilience needed to deliver those constantly surging numbers of packets to their right destination, faster and more securely.

Getting DNS skills in sync

Since 1999, Men & Mice has been known for running effective and efficient DNS & BIND training courses worldwide. Previous offerings included open, public courses in a number of locations, as well as private on-site training on request.

Beginning in 2018, we are putting a little extra effort and logging a few more air-miles, making it much easier for you to attend, wherever you are.  We’re extending our public offerings into new destinations, with upcoming courses scheduled in California, New York, Switzerland, England and Israel, with additional courses to be added as the year progresses. See the schedule at menandmice.com/training/

To get the hang of running a better network, sign up for the 3-day DNS & BIND Fundamentals, or take our most popular course and spend 5 days sinking your teeth deeper into the subject matter in DNS & BIND Week. A range of on-site training options is also on offer.

Reach out to Men & Mice Training to register for a course, ask questions, log comments, or to recommend additional locations for future public offerings.

In the meantime, check out the dates and feast your eyes on the list of topics covered by our hands-on courses, taught by DNS experts.

Happy training!
