Why Digital Learning Must Be a Priority for All IT Professionals

No other industry undergoes change as quickly and as often as IT, nor has as much impact on our personal and professional lives. While progressions in other support functions such as finance and HR can offer greater efficiencies for businesses, advances in IT can change the very nature of business itself - and, indeed, our lifestyles. AI, big data, cloud computing, blockchain, database automation; innovations in IT are coming thick and fast, and all across the technology stack. How can today’s IT professionals keep pace with an industry in a state of perpetual evolution? The Time for IT Learning is Always Now Not only are there more technologies to learn, more quickly, but in today’s fast-paced and always-on business world it is increasingly difficult to find the necessary time to keep skills up-to-date. Developing and maintaining existing systems, managing new projects, IT planning, implementations, upgrades, optimizations - not to mention all the day-to-day tasks in between - combine to overwhelm today’s IT workers and keep them from engaging in dedicated learning time. Yet each day that you are not learning about the latest technologies is a day when your knowledge and skills become more obsolete. Your market value and career prospects are inextricably linked to your ability to keep up with the latest technologies. Whatever you are working on right now, make sure you’re working on your knowledge development. The Classroom No Longer Cuts Costs for IT Traditional classroom-based training has many benefits, but it is not suited for a paradigm of continual learning or for the busy working schedules of today’s IT employees. Classroom learning sometimes needs to be scheduled months in advance depending on course availability and employee working priorities. Also, group training sessions run at a set pace which is unlikely to be the optimum learning speed for you. Many parts of the course may not even be relevant to your specific job role in your organization. With business and IT needs rapidly changing, can you be sure that you will use all your classroom training immediately after the course delivery? Will you need to refresh some learning in the near future - for example, immediately before implementations and upgrades or when solving an emerging business issue? The limitations of one-off group classroom learning make it highly impractical for many IT professionals today. Digital Learning for the Digital Age Digital training is rapidly gaining in popularity as it is ideally suited to meeting the continual learning needs of time-pressed IT staff. Check out these fascinating statistics about eLearning, courtesy of the eLearningindustry: Experience the following benefits of digital learning: Learn only what you need, when you need it - without having to sit through an entire course or spend time traveling offsite to do so Consume course content at your own pace - pause and repeat segments as often as you need Develop new skills on your own schedule - take your training in chunks and spread it over several days or weeks as your work calendar allows An increasingly significant advantage of digital learning is its location flexibility. Learn from the comfort of your desk, staff training room, or home office. Perhaps you’re frequently on the move, traveling between business locations or client project sites? Or how about on your daily commute? Wherever you are, your opportunity for digital learning is right there with you. Digital learning also enables you to learn five times more material for every hour of training. Because of the way the materials are presented, you get to consume information in smaller, more digestible chunks, making it easier to consign things to memory and understand how concepts interact with each other. To help you on your journey to excellence, Oracle University's Learning Subscriptions offer the latest in digital training to meet all your learning requirements. This subscription format provides one year of access to high-quality content delivered by Oracle product experts. It's an extremely cost-efficient way for you to learn anytime, anywhere. Subscribing to the New Paradigm With structured programs designed for your specific job role or IT function, Oracle Learning Subscriptions are continually updated as the technologies evolve, ensuring you are always among the first to learn and apply the latest Oracle features and functionality. Furthermore, the always-available, highly-searchable HD videos are an ideal solution when you need that quick refresher or to dip into learning content to solve an immediate business problem. If you're working toward earning an Oracle Certification, you can immerse yourself in the topic. Take a closer look at Oracle University’s: Technology Learning Subscriptions for the latest range of product, solution and industry training Cloud Learning Subscriptions for all things Oracle SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS The speed and breadth of IT innovation are only set to increase. Digital learning offers the only practical way for IT pros to stay on top of emerging technologies. Treat yourself to continual education with Oracle Learning Subscriptions.

How to Speed Up the Oracle ERP Cloud Adoption Curve

In my role as a cloud adoption specialist for Oracle University, I work with various sized companies who are either in the process of moving to the cloud or just about to get started. I have been with Oracle University for 17 years now, working with customers, both internal and external, to understand help identify training requirements, and help to build a solution that will meet timelines, budgets, and training needs. Based on past experience, I’ve found a couple of key areas that typically hang people up during their implementations. This blog provides some best practice recommendations to improve implementation and to speed up product adoption. My work is not done when the deal is closed and signed. In fact, speaking from an organizational point of view, that’s only the beginning. Oracle is deeply invested in ensuring that clients have successful implementations. The reason for this is very simple: if an ERP Cloud implementation is unsuccessful, users won’t make the best use of the application, time and money is wasted, and sooner or later management will start looking for alternatives. Optimizing your cloud investment – some ideas: Get Company-Level Buy-In Make sure you have senior management’s full support, and that support is made public and vocal. The company leadership’s backing can make a real difference in for an ERP Cloud implementation. Since senior officers usually only address high-level issues, it reiterates for employees that this is a company priority that demands their commitment and support. Granted, getting senior management to vocalize their support in the move to ERP Cloud is a challenge in itself. It helps to highlight the importance of their endorsement to the project’s success. So in a way, we come full circle: company leadership need to endorse Oracle ERP Cloud implementation to accelerate its success, and employees need to hear their managers’ support in order to pick up the pace and dive deeper into the learning process. Oracle CEO @MarkVHurd says the #cloud is critical to helping companies worldwide achieve their 4 main priorities: increase revenue, boost cash flow, decrease spending, and manage risk. Where do you stand? @forbes https://t.co/ancAZsSoyg pic.twitter.com/cV79Vh4brv — Oracle ERP Cloud (@OracleERPCloud) April 16, 2019 Invest in User Experience and Ease of Use Research shows that the #1 need in an ERP system expressed by manufacturers is ease of use, and it’s safe to assume that manufacturers are not the only group of users concerned with ease of use in their ERP applications.    Image source: Aberdeen Group This makes for an interesting challenge because ERP systems are required to carry out complex actions and are based on a massive amount of data input and calculation. Let’s face it: no ERP in the world can ever be as easy to use as some ecommerce platforms which are designed for minimum actions. From the users’ perspective, learning how to use new software can trigger quite a bit of apprehension. There is a lot of learning and memorizing involved, even if it is “just” a move to ERP Cloud. It becomes apparent that manufacturers are adamant about ease of use as a means to cross the “Onboarding Bridge”. If the first meeting with the new ERP application goes smoothly, employees are more likely to settle into a comfortable routine of using the software. For this purpose, I’d like to recommend Oracle University’s Guided Learning. Guided Learning is a set of step-by-step guides created for Oracle ERP Cloud by Oracle experts. They are extremely helpful both with onboarding and with long-term retention, as they can be accessed anytime from anywhere, guiding users through actions that require multiple steps.   Keep Promoting the Product to Your Users You would think that since the organization has paid for the software license and implementation is in progress, the selling part of the process is over. Wrong. Success of an ERP deployment depends on users’ motivation to start using it. Is Oracle ERP Cloud going to make their jobs easier? Will it save them time? Will billing and accounting be easier now?   Will it give me enough information as I go through the business transactions?

Retail Industry 2019: Planning and Optimization Are Essential

If you’re in the retail business, you already know the importance of planning. Without it, too many retailers fail each year because they do not effectively examine results and plan for the future.  “Planning helps an organization chart a course for the achievement of its goals. The process begins with reviewing the current operations of the organization and identifying what needs to be improved operationally in the upcoming year. From there, planning involves envisioning the results the organization wants to achieve, and determining the steps necessary to arrive at the intended destination--success, whether that is measured in financial terms, or goals that include being the highest-rated organization in customer satisfaction.”[1] Some of the challenges retailers often face include: Collecting and analyzing customer data Integrating both direct and online marketing to the customers Wanting to understand customer preferences better Determining how to best satisfy their customers As the retail industry becomes more competitive and saturated, companies hoping to stand out should think of stores less as places of commerce and more as places of experiences. From Brennan Wilkie, SVP of customer experience strategy @WeAreInMoment https://t.co/F1GJQdTmt5 pic.twitter.com/IqLTbpm7sp — Total Retail (@MyTotalRetail) March 1, 2019 Oracle Retail Customers Global leaders like Lenox, Hamley's, and Gap rely on Oracle Retail applications to run their businesses and are achieving solid results. One Brazilian shoe company attained 30% reduction in inventory levels leveraging best-practice financial planning processes.

Why Does Java Remain So Popular?

This year, 2020, marks the 25th anniversary of the Java programming language. One of the most widely used programming languages, Java is used as the server-side language for most back-end development projects, including those involving big data and Android development. Java is also commonly used for desktop computing, other mobile computing, games, and numerical computing. The popularity of Java is further evidenced with 90% of all Fortune 500 companies using Java. So how popular is Java? Very. The TIOBE Programming Community publishes an index showing the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated several times per year. The top ten programming languages, per the latest report, are shown below. Note that Java has consistently held the number-one slot in the index since 2004! Top 10 Programming Languages Feb 2019      Feb 2018      Programming Language      Ratings      Change      1 1 Java 15.876% +0.89% 2 2 C 12.424% +0.57% 3 4 Python 7.574% +2.41% 4 3 C++ 7.444% +1.72% 5 6 Visual Basic .NET 7.095% +3.02% 6 8 JavaScript 2.848% -0.32% 7 5 C# 2.846% -1.61% 8 7 PHP 2.271% -1.15% 9 11 SQL 1.900% -0.46% 10 20 Objective-C 1.447% +0.32%     Why Do Software Developers Use Java? The portability of Java contributes to its wide use and popularity, but there are other reasons why software developers continue to choose Java. Since it is an object-oriented language; it’s robust, secure and relatively simpler and easier to learn than languages such as C and C++. Object-oriented languages make complex problems easier to solve and provide greater modularity. This is a natural and pragmatic approach for software design. Java objects encapsulate data and behavior so that code can be reused, which makes testing and troubleshooting easier. With Java, objects are created using classes that define the attributes (data) and behaviors (defined by methods coded in the class). Java features such as inheritance further contribute to simplified code. With inheritance, similar but different types of objects are simplified by inheriting common attributes and behaviors from the parent class. This allows reuse of the common code while allowing for differences. New @Java Collections Cheat Sheet!

Oracle Guided Learning

5 Reasons to Try Oracle University Guided Learning

Are you currently using Oracle Cloud applications or thinking about implementing an Oracle solution? If so, we would like to introduce Oracle Guided Learning - the leading solution in the market to accelerate cloud adoption across your organization. According to LinkedIn’s 2018 Workplace Learning Report, in modern workplace learning environments, Talent Developers are depending more on online learning solutions to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse, multi-generational workforce. LinkedIn found the following: 68% of employees prefer to learn at work 58% of employees prefer to learn at their own pace 49% of employees prefer to learn at the point of need Oracle Guided Learning, in-application guidance, serves up the right guidance at the right time, making it easy for employees to navigate and learn in ways that are most comfortable for them. Let’s take a look at a 5 reasons why you should include Guided Learning as part of your cloud adoption strategy. Get Ready-Made Content Guided Learning comes with a vast library of ready-made guides, created by Oracle University's subject matter experts. That means you won't have to create guides by yourself, and your users will gain immediate access to the multiple guides relevant to their roles, on the Oracle SaaS applications with which they interact. Always Stay Up-to-Date with Oracle Cloud Software Oracle University Guided Learning is the only in-application learning solution that is always in sync with Oracle Cloud software. Guided Learning guides will be added as a new software release is published; they will always include new features, and they will always be updated on interface changes the minute these changes see the light of day. This is made possible because Guided Learning is the only Oracle Cloud learning solution developed in the same place where the product changes are planned -- Oracle Cloud. Encourage Productivity with Role-based Learning Perhaps the most appealing benefit of Oracle University Guided Learning – guides are tailored for roles, specific to Oracle Cloud applications. For instance, there are specific guides for HR managers working on HCM; guides for sales representatives updating their opportunities in Engagement Cloud, as well as for sales representatives who need to log expenses on HCM. In short - the guides already exist, and have been carefully developed by product experts who are closely familiar with Oracle Cloud products, as well as the wide range of Oracle users. Provide Lively, Dynamic Learning with Images and Videos As part of Oracle’s commitment to deliver only the most advanced technology, Guided Learning provides the option to add rich media to guides. This allows guides to include video, images, polls, forms, and any other form of rich media (“richer” than text). These colorful, dynamic additions to guides bring them alive and increase engagement for users. Guides can be customized to include content and media specific to organizations (for example: policy documents, HR notifications and so on). Reduce Support and Training Costs One of the greatest advantages of using Oracle University Guided Learning comes from being able to automate support. Guides can easily and swiftly replace support calls to Help Desk and IT, as they offer the same type of service: guiding users through complex or infrequent workflows and actions. Guided Learning does not aim to replace human support altogether, rather to take the load off support representatives with help processes that can be automated and save both users and support providers the time and energy involving a help desk call, therefore reducing overall cost. In #modernbusiness, offering only traditional #training environments would be like handing a new employee a pencil and a notepad in today’s technology-centered world, and then expecting modern results.

Trends and Predictions for Developers in 2019

2018 saw major changes in the development world and this year promises to be even more transformational. Which skills to learn? Let’s review some major milestones and stories from 2018 and see how they are shaping current events and driving predictions for the future of developers in 2019. Security and Performance With Google and Facebook each exposing the data of more than 50 million users in 2018 and with the materialization of vulnerabilities such as Meltdown and Spectre, security continues to be a major concern with no conclusive solution in sight - as last year’s issues at popular package manager NPM also demonstrated. In 2019, developers should increase their security training, learn HTTPS, and exercise caution when using potentially vulnerable third party libraries. Performance was also a major talking point for developers in 2018, as users began to change their habits in the mobile world: Apps are no longer downloaded as much as they used to be. Indeed, this year is predicted to see more user activity from mobile web browsing than from native mobile apps. To compensate for the comparatively poor performance of mobile internet connection speeds and processing, 2018 saw the emergence of innovative development strategies and best practices to enhance web performance. Oracle’s Siddhartha Agarwal predicts that, due to security concerns, a hybrid application deployment approach will emerge in 2019 to balance security and performance needs. The approach - which will be driven by Cloud service providers - will combine the high performance and efficiency of running in containers with a lightweight virtual machine for increased security and isolation. Moving from Legacy to the Cloud Agarwal points out that, while Cloud-native is now the default choice for new in-house enterprise development projects, the vast majority of legacy tech stacks are not Cloud-native. He therefore predicts new technologies to emerge in 2019, designed to modernize and containerize legacy apps in order to manage them similarly to Cloud-native apps. This trend will enable experienced developers to build on existing skillsets. Furthermore, developers this year will partner with a platform engineer - an emerging role akin to a system administrator for the Cloud - who will manage and monitor resource availability and security for Cloud-native application development and deployment. What’s the key to being a modern developer, building both back-end and front-end logic and interfaces?@GeraldVenzl#OOW18 https://t.co/QnzwxuHtRi pic.twitter.com/3ntbbllt4V — Oracle Magazine (@oraclemagazine) December 21, 2018 Developments in JavaScript In the dynamic world of JavaScript, there was a big push in 2018 towards popularizing static typing. However, none of the contenders to date - including Microsoft’s TypeScript - is likely to supersede JavaScript as the web’s go-to language. Additionally, Node.js and Express.js are expected to dominate in 2019, having become the principal and standardized way to write backend API servers; while 2018 also saw a significant rise in the popularity of learning GraphQL - which will continue to be a hot topic within the developer community. Last year, React, Angular and Vue focused heavily on improving both the CLI experience and rendering performance - and are all now viable options for building fast front-end applications. With this trend continuing in 2019, it is well worth learning about these libraries. Other significant web development stories in 2018 included the adoption and stability around CSS grid; Microsoft’s switch to a Chromium-based browser; the release of Babel 7.0 to better align the JavaScript ecosystem; the increased prevalence of Progressive Web Apps; and the improved Web Component adoption by the five major browsers. Simplify with Serverless, but Remember the Fundamentals IT innovations and progressions in 2018 have simplified developers’ lives, increasing their focus on application logic and away from operations. The rise of serverless architecture, Cloud-based autonomous databases, infrastructure-as-a-service and the launch of module bundlers such as Webpack 4 and Parcel enable today’s developer to spend less time worrying about tooling, configurations, patching, provisioning, tuning, and scaling. Argawal predicts that the economics of serverless will drive both its popularity and its innovation in 2019. Expect serverless to rapidly expand into other business areas and an open standard to take shape as developers spread their workloads across several Clouds and select those which avoid vendor lock-in. While managed services and innovations are certainly burgeoning, it is still highly recommended to enhance fundamental skillsets such as system design and good architecture. Learn about data structure and algorithms Boost your SQL knowledge Learn how to build relational databases in a scalable way Computer science fundamentals don’t change and will keep you in good stead for years to come. Keep up with Innovations In 2019, developers will also increasingly need to understand data science and to integrate its models into their workflows. Agarwal forecasts that by the end of the year, 80% of custom apps will include embedded intelligence as a first-class capability. Future software will need to make use of machine learning to anticipate user needs, so why not boost your skills through machine learning APIs? Argawal also predicts that the prevalence of bots flooding the market will drive the need for intelligent interfaces which can select the right bot for the right task. Blockchain will also feature heavily in 2019, particularly in regulated industries where trust and transparency are key. Developers will be querying data from an external blockchain ledger and can already embed features that call out to a particular Blockchain Cloud service. In 2019, the development world will grow faster than ever before. With technologies such as blockchain, chatbots and machine learning becoming mature enough for real-world projects, developers should be burning with excitement about the opportunities ahead. Seize these through training and validate your knowledge and skills with official certifications. Related Content Are You Developing Your Skills in the Rapidly Developing World of Development?

Oracle Guided Learning

Oracle Guided Learning Significantly Accelerates Cloud SaaS Adoption

As we all race to embrace digital transformation and its inherent benefits, we need to consider the impact on the organization and how to educate, empower, and support our employees throughout their transformational journey. As such, what’s required is a focus on change and user adoption. Throughout my 25+ years’ experience, change can evoke excitement, nervousness, or a little of both. While we say business is business and it’s not personal, change can impact our employees to varying degrees. Now, let’s apply that to your enterprise applications. You’ve decided to migrate to the Cloud -- maybe not everything -- but you are starting on your digital journey. Whether you’ve already selected an Oracle application or are considering one: you want the best solution, with minimal disruption and maximum ROI – as fast as possible. How to Minimize the Impact of Change Oracle University’s primary goal is to help you quickly realize the benefits of your new Cloud application. We do this by bringing together the industry’s leading experts in education, product development, and application knowledge to provide our customers with current, multi-modal learning tools and content. We enable not only the fundamentals of Cloud, but we also empower you with the skills and knowledge to leverage the full benefits that Oracle Cloud applications have to offer today and with every future Cloud release. Oracle Acquires Iridize to Strengthen its Capabilities We believe that in order to make it easy to use SaaS applications from day one, the best solution is to deliver in-application guidance that helps employees complete their day-to-day tasks and business processes, driving immediate competency and productivity. In the past, Oracle relied on third parties to round out its guided training solution. With the realization that this just was not enough, we reviewed the market, evaluating several applications, and confirmed that Iridize was one of the most advanced in-application enablement solutions in the market.  An Israeli company established in 2010 and boasting clients like Visa, DHL, and Xerox, Iridize was a pioneer of guided learning technology.

AI Predictions for 2019: Artificial Intelligence Boldly Goes Where No One Has Gone Before

Artificial Intelligence came a long way in 2018, and now increasing numbers of C-level executives are wondering what lies in store for AI in 2019, and how they can leverage it to their advantage. Gil Press, writing in Forbes magazine, cites predictions from 120 AI leaders across a wide range of fields. While each has their own unique perspective, there is an overwhelming consensus that this will be a watershed year. AI in 2019 is predicted to: Evolve into considerably more practical and personalized applications Have a major impact on IT security Rapidly permeate and enrich a wide range of industries and business functions - providing a noticeable competitive edge to early adopters and pioneers Increase the demand for highly skilled IT professionals substantially in a global labor market that is already short of AI talent Let’s take a closer look at what the experts say. AI Becomes More Practical, and Personal Where 2018 was the year of excitement and publicity in the AI sphere, specialists agree that 2019 will be the year that AI becomes practical, efficient, and personal. “2019 will be a pivotal year for AI in the workplace - the year we move from conversation to impact,” said Oracle’s GVP of HCM Strategy, Gretchen Alarcon. Ram Menon, Founder and CEO at Avaamo, agrees. “AI will get down to work beyond the hype and headlines. Practical AI will rule and augment workplace productivity in new and interesting ways.” Sean Byrnes, CEO and Co-Founder of Outlier and Yaron Hadad, Chief Scientist and Co-Founder of Nutrino, among many others, concur that this year AI is entering the age of real-world application. However, a large part of AI’s practicality in 2019 will be down to its ‘human’ touch. “Vendors will focus more on humanizing AI with empathy,” explains Dr. Rob Walker, Vice President of Decision Management and Analytics at Pegasystems. This is because customers demand to be seen as individuals and not simply data records. And it is this quality of empathy on which it will be judged, notes Rana el Kaliouby, CEO and Co-Founder of Affectiva. Most believe that AI will succeed in taking great strides in empathy and personalization in 2019. “This year, someone will finally know if that special someone really wants a fruitcake or power washer,” said Alan Conboy at Scale Computing. AI Advances across Industries and Functions AI’s footprint will greatly expand in 2019, with many predicting exponential growth in fields where it has already been tried and tested - such as automotive and finance. This is especially true in the healthcare sector, where giant leaps are predicted in disease prediction, prevention, diagnostics, and management - particularly in the areas of oncology, radiology, drug development, diabetes, and mental health. By combining data from various sources - including wearables, voice and video, and VR, AI will create a more holistic picture and help deliver more individualized care, wherever the patient happens to be. Across all industries, an AI boom is predicted in key business functions including HR, marketing, sales, customer service, and supply chain. There will be a widespread development of AI empathy in chatbots, while AI will continue to innovate within the IT industry itself. “We expect that by 2020, all development will be assisted by AI co-developers that understand developer intent, suggest next best patterns and detect problems before applications go into production,” forecasts Antonio Alegria, Head of AI, OutSystems. Re-evaluating Data and Security Considering 2018’s high-profile data breaches, increased data protection regulations, customer privacy concerns, and the prevalence of hackers, information security officers in 2019 must become experts in leveraging AI to repel all threats. These officers must add AI technologies to their arsenals of attack Nadav Zafrir, CEO at Team8 points out that automation enables attackers to use simpler tools to infiltrate networks - which poses extra problems due to the limited pool of skilled security talent on the labor market. Setu Kulkarni, Vice President of Corporate Strategy, WhiteHat Security, predicts that a new breed of security data scientists will emerge in 2019 - to prepare, process, and interpret the data so that AI can optimize and automate security in real time. Organizations are also likely to re-think their data and security strategies, as more data becomes available from more sources. Specifically, they will need highly skilled AI practitioners, who know how to ask the right security questions and how to leverage internal and third-party data sets and AI for specific business needs. AI Learning for All This year, humans and AI will work closer together than ever before. Both IT and non-IT staff must learn more about AI to maximize business opportunities. There will continue to be a lack of qualified AI specialists witin all markets; as a result, organizations must look to constantly develop AI talents of its own employees to bridge the skills gap. “In 2019, everybody is going to start learning AI,” says Aman Naimat, CTO, Demandbase. “There are only about 5,000 data scientists and we can’t rely on them to lead an industrial revolution. Everyone needs to have AI skills, from product managers to business analysts.” Johnny Ghibril, VP of Data Science & Solution Architecture at B.Yond agrees. “There is a shortage in talent that will affect everyone and strain companies’ ability to deliver.” Ghibril suggests that junior data scientists can help with the deficit, but that “the learning curve will be felt in 2019.” As artificial intelligence becomes an increasingly important part of our personal and professional lives, AI learning will spread throughout society itself in the year ahead. As Josh Feast, CEO and Co-Founder of Cogito puts it, “In 2019, society will push for the demystification of AI and demand a better understanding of what technology is being built.” It’s not easy to foretell the future, but at Oracle University, we predict boundless success in 2019 for all those trained and qualified in AI.

Artificial Intelligence came a long way in 2018, and now increasing numbers of C-level executives are wondering what lies in store for AI in 2019, and how they can leverage it to their advantage. Gil...

We want our customers to get the value they seek through live training, while having the confidence that our courses will run as scheduled. To deliver this, we have selected a number of courses that will run – guaranteed! Live training has many benefits that have led to its popularity among our customers.

Oracle University Partnerships In addition to our own instructors, we contract freelance instructors and other training companies to help us deliver courses to smaller markets, and in local languages. To make these partnerships beneficial for Oracle University and its partner network, we need to make sure we have adequate student participation. Why Live Classes Sometimes Get Canceled Despite our best efforts to prepare for and promote classes, sometimes we just don’t have enough demand for a class in a particular location on a particular date, which may lead us to reschedule or cancel the class. When we do have to reschedule or cancel a class, we always personally reach out to student and work to put them into a class that will run, but this is not the best situation for a student who needs predictability. Announcing Guaranteed to Run Courses!
