The email stream lately has included many requests for training suitable for beginners new to WebSphere MQ. This is good because it implies new customers or a larger community of developers and admins. My pages here are organized as more of a reference index and I realized they don’t necessarily meet this particular need. I may put up a “New to MQ?” page at some point but in the meantime, I thought it might be helpful to capture the email and my response.Hi Rob,
Thanks for accepting the LinkedIn request. I am looking for online websphere MQ and Message broker training for beginners. If you are providing training in these technologies, could you please let me know the details.
Also, Could you please share your tutorials and videos on these technologies?
Thanks a lot.
Most of my authored content is WMQ security and doesn’t directly fit the request. However, there are many free, online information sources for new administrators, developers and users of WebSphere MQ. Below is a quick-and-dirty list which I’ll probably clean up and organize at some point but will get you started.
- WebSphere MQ on developerWorks
- The IBM Messaging Community
- The MQ Dev Community
- Especially the “Participate” page in the MQ Dev Community
- WebSphere MQ’s Facebook page
- WebSphere Connectivity Scenarios Infocenter
(There’s not much here today but the intent is to grow the content over time.)
- The WebSphere MQ tag on Stack Overflow
- WebSphere MQ library search at IBM
- MQ On TV You Tube channel
- WebSphere Education videos
- My WMQ Security video
- My “Zero to Hello World” video
Got anything to add? Put it in the comments. Just remember, this is about WMQ beginner education resources so even though your admin tool may be the best thing since sliced bread I’ll remove advertising links.
(Side note: What was the best thing before sliced bread? Jimmy Carr says it was “really massive sandwiches.”)
