      Will we receive a (live) meeting invite or are the sessions being recorded and distributed via youtube? How long will the session itself be per week?

      Hello Bob,

      the course starts on October 28 and lasts 6 weeks. Every day a new aspect of the SAP HANA Cloud Platform is presented in a ~20min educational video - available via the platform for registered students.

      Each session starts with a brief introductory presentation of the topic followed by an comprehensive demo, that explains the concepts and tools in action. Afterwards students have the chance for learning-by-doing via the trial version with their personal accounts. Estimated effort is 4 - 5 hours per week. plus preparation for the final exams (questionaire covering all the presented topics of the course).

      Feel free to check the course website for further details:

      The Cloud Portal will be in focus in week 6, unit 1 (first week of December) with lots of complementary activities supporting the demos, trial exercises and interactive discussions with the portal experts.

      Hope this helps. Looking forward to seeing you at the course.

      Have a great day,
