Course Name: Core Principles and Architecture of TiDB Database (101)

Study Duration: 585 minutes

Course Gains:

Through the course, I learned about the basic architecture and concepts of TiDB.

Course Content:

Mainly introduces the basic architecture of TiDB and the basic functional principles of each component.

Issues or Extended Thoughts During Learning:

After studying the 101 course, I found that as long as you follow the video and study it at least twice, passing the exam is quite easy. Initially, I was a bit worried about not passing, but after watching it multiple times and taking notes, I realized that with thorough preparation, passing the exam is very easy. A good memory is not as reliable as a bad pen; I suggest everyone take notes and create mind maps of key points while watching the videos. Here are my notes for reference. Once you grasp the content, passing the exam is very easy.
