The use of python in the course?

Hello,

I haven’t used python before, but I am interested in the performance course. How much of a handicap would it be not knowing, on a scale of 1 - 10 (10 being you are doomed)?

How are the labs resolved, do they they require result sets. questions about explain plans, etc?

I have completed the first 2 chapters and no python so far. It has been about indexes and explain() is handy.

Thanks,

That is good to know, since I do need to refresh my knowledge on the performance side of things.

It was all covered in the old M101JS, but that has now been retired, and the new course will not cover that, which is my understanding.

I looked at the study guide for the certification exam and it made my hair turn whiter :slight_smile:

No worries, no Python in M201. M220P, now that’s all Python :smiley: But even there most of it has already been written for you.
