Super excited, but also super bummed out because it’s July 1st and the course I am super excited about appears to have a release date in late July?
Please do not tease us with your marketing in the future. We use LA for real life things and real scheduling. I have been planning with my team to take AWS Security and getting it done by the end of the month. I guess that’s what I get for assuming July is July 1.

Hi Josh,
We have announced the show dates, but, we are very careful never to say they are all “available July 1”. That’s why we say they are launching during or in the month of July. All of the launches will be launching in July. But I’m sure you can imagine, not all our content is done exactly at the same time. Even when our training architects complete the training there is a lot of review and finalization it has to go through. So what we do is break it up into groups to be able to complete it. Once each group is done, the group is launched. The courses are launched within 5 days of being 100% completed.
As much as I would like, it’s just not possible at this scale to launch them all on July 1, unless we hold on to finished courses, which we do not like to do. We like to get the courses out as soon as they are completed.
I want to announce content before it is released, but it seems everyone we do, we get burned a bit. If we announce the month, we get burned if it’s not on the first date, if we announce the date, we get burned if it is behind. It’s pretty hard to pinpoint a course down to the exact date, since it goes through a lot of q/a and you never know what the course author will encounter when creating it. Our only other option is to just not tell anybody anything that is coming ahead of time.
Let’s face it as well, talking about the content is important. It’s how we are able to hire more training architects to create the content that you want in the time frame you want it.
