Customer Spotlight: Redis Labs Launches Redis University
Meet Redis Labs, the home of open source Redis, the world’s fastest in-memory database platform and the “Most Loved Database” by developers in Stack Overflow’s survey for the second consecutive year across 183 countries.
With tech-thirsty developers itching for knowledge, Redis Labs recently announced the creation of Redis University: the #1 online destination for Redis users and enthusiasts to learn from peers and the world’s most renowned database experts.
Redis University Launch
At this year’s RedisConf 2018, the company unveiled the availability of Redis University, with their first course launching this June 2018. The announcement was shared with over 1,000 event attendees and immediately garnered hundreds of student registrations.
“Our number one goal is to continue educating and finding ways to share the power of Redis with as many technologists as humanly possible,” said Alvin Richards, chief education officer for Redis Labs. “Redis University was designed to foster that sense of community by opening the door to new users and use cases. We want to give everyone in the ecosystem the opportunity to explore the full breadth of the Redis platform and share ideas that could spark future innovation.”
Powered by Appsembler, Redis University’s interactive courses will help students stay engaged, while allowing for live discussion, collaboration and feedback with Redis University faculty. Online courses are expected to run four to six weeks and will include video tutorials, quizzes, demos and assignments.
Powering Hands-on Learning
Redis joined the Appsembler family in March 2018 and did not waste any time adopting, building, and launching a powerhouse of experiential learning tools. To appeal to their growing audience, they created a series of courses on Open edX using Appsembler’s Tahoe platform, and embedded interactive content throughout using Appsembler’s Virtual Labs product. These labs offer a curated environment where the Redis server is running and includes individual code samples and sample data so learners can practice and develop new skills asynchronously.
As the database giant continues to ramp-up course enrollments in Redis University, they’re also looking to grow and optimize the program. Together, Appsembler and Redis will build bigger and better customized learner experiences with powerful branding, mobile apps, and much more.
