in 2014 the MaxDB Team offered online training sessions so called Expert Sessions.
These trainings were free of charge.
You can download the recordings and slides of the sessions using the following link: SAP MaxDB: The SAP Database - Training
We are planning further SAP MaxDB Expert Sessions in 2015 based on MaxDB Version 7.9.
As soon as the dates are known we will announce them here.
