Today, we are excited to launch TiDB Academy, a series of technical training courses and certifications on TiDB and distributed databases in general, taught by our senior technical team.
Since PingCAP started building TiDB, it has encountered countless challenges, pitfalls, and critical design choices. Over the past three years, the PingCAP team has answered many questions from the users. Ed Huang, the CTO of PingCAP, has summarized these questions into “9 why's” that every engineer may ask when looking at a distributed database and gives his answers to these questions in this post to help make decision-making of engineers a bit easier.
In this 5-minute tutorial for beginners, we will show you how to spin up a standard TiDB cluster using Docker Compose on your local computer, so you can get a taste of its hybrid power, before using it for work or your own project in production.

TiDB 2.0 is released! We absorbed insights and feedbacks from our customers, listened to requests and issues from our community, and reflected internally on our ultimate vision of building a distributed hybrid transactional and analytical processing database that scales itself, heals itself, and lives in the cloud.
TiDB is compatible with MySQL, strong consistent and highly available.
