Why can’t the TiDB DBA course be watched for free?

| username: Jellybean | Original post link

Some courses are free to watch, while others require community points to redeem (you can also purchase them directly). However, it is more recommended that everyone accumulate points through community activities to redeem them, encouraging everyone to grow together through community mutual assistance and other activities.

If you don’t spend some time on the forum, you won’t understand it.

Now 303 requires points for redemption, you can check 302 first.

The basic entry-level content is free, but advanced content requires points to redeem. :wink:

It doesn’t matter if you look at 303 or not, management can look at version 5.*.

This point accumulation is a bit slow.

The weapon of criticism cannot replace the criticism of weapons.
Just study and get it done.
Besides, you see these courses themselves give points.

After completing the free courses, you will accumulate some points. By being active on the forum for a few more days, you can still save up those study points.

Indeed, but perseverance is key, and the learning process is inherently long.

As other experts have commented, after completing the free courses, you will accumulate some points. Then, by actively participating in forum activities, you will quickly gather more learning points.

Of course, if you want to skip this process, paid channels can also help you achieve your goals immediately.

I persisted for a week and accumulated enough points to immediately redeem the 303 course. I’m still accumulating points towards PCTP.

| username: zhanggame1 | Original post link

It’s basically not slow. Answering questions and posting 100 points a day is not difficult.

| username: cy6301567 | Original post link

Yes, just starting out and not familiar with it.

Points redemption is required.

| username: cy6301567 | Original post link

Yes, now I’m active on the forum, earning points to learn, haha.

| username: zhaokede | Original post link

Take your time to accumulate and learn, there is no end to learning.

| username: cassblanca | Original post link

A prerequisite for taking the PCTP is completing the 303 course.

| username: cy6301567 | Original post link

Yes, still working hard to earn points and learn.

I have finished reading 303. The experimental parts involving dumpling, lightning, dm, br, cdc, and binlog are too complicated. After following the experiments once, I can’t remember clearly after a few days and start to get confused.
