1. Learning and Mastering TiDB Technology

TiDB is an open-source distributed SQL database developed by PingCAP. It combines the ease of use of traditional RDBMS systems with the horizontal scalability of NoSQL systems. For database professionals, mastering TiDB technology means being able to handle large-scale, high-concurrency data scenarios, which is extremely valuable in today’s data-driven world.

Learning Path:

  • Basic Knowledge: Understand SQL language, database principles, and distributed system design.
  • Official Documentation: Read the official TiDB documentation provided by PingCAP to understand its architecture and components.
  • Practical Operation: Set up a TiDB cluster and practice data migration and troubleshooting.
  • Community Interaction: Participate in the TiDB community, exchange experiences with other developers, and solve practical problems.

Potential Benefits:

  • Career Opportunities: As TiDB becomes more widely used in the industry, there is a high demand for professionals proficient in TiDB.
  • Salary Increase: Database administrators or engineers with TiDB skills can typically earn above the market average salary.

2. Benefits of a Career in TiDB

As a TiDB expert, you can find career opportunities in various fields, including finance, e-commerce, cloud computing, etc. These industries require database systems capable of handling big data and high concurrency requests.

Learning TiDB can significantly broaden your career path in big data management. The benefits include high salaries in the IT industry. If you reach an expert level, you could earn over 50,000 RMB per month. Even at an entry-level, you could earn over 20,000 RMB per month, with an annual income ranging from 300,000 to 600,000 RMB.

Investing your career income in financial products can help preserve and increase your assets. There are many ways to manage finances, including but not limited to stocks, bonds, funds, and real estate.

If you earn 600,000 RMB a year, a conservative investment in a bank could yield an annual return of 2%. If you choose financial management with a 70% annual return, your annual income could reach 1 million RMB. Learning TiDB and using your database knowledge to help with financial management can yield higher returns, allowing you to enjoy life without worrying about salary. This is the essence of life.

Financial Strategy:

  • Risk Assessment: Choose suitable investment products based on your risk tolerance.

This is ridiculous. Buying financial products and funds can leave you with nothing, heavily in debt, and ultimately jumping off the roof!
