One of the challenges of our new Membership package is that to deliver value to our members, we have to release new training packages regularly. Preferably at least once a month!

We've always been slow at VirtualPairProgrammers - we have always been determined to deliver only top quality material that we've taken time and care to write, record, re-record, edit, record again, edit again, post produce and then in many cases, re-write, re-record, re-edit and....well, you get the idea.

But we can still do all of this. From now on, we're going to be releasing our courses, to members only, in shorter "modules" - chunks of something like 3-5 hours.

The first release is a 6 hour course on Spring Security - it covers the core concepts, with some fun stuff like BCrypt along the way. And we've lots more to come in the next month, with HTML5, DevOps courses and OAuth.

I forgot to announce my new NoSQL course on my blog. This was very slack of me, but in my defence, we were very busy at the time launching our new membership scheme.


What this means is that you can now sign up to the VirtualPairProgrammers.com website, and for a small monthly fee, get access to our entire library of Java training - 170 hours and counting.

So you can start on NoSQL right away. This course is designed to help anyone who wants to get a start in NoSQL but doesn't really know....well, where to start!

I talk about why NoSQL is so popular, what it's good for (and not), and then three parts of the course go through three of the big hitters in the NoSQL world - MongoDb, Redis and Neo4j. They're all very different, so you get a real tour of the NoSQL world.

If you've ever been curious about NoSQL, then this is the course for you.
