Was there a rescheduling for the start of the course?

I was under the impression the course was to start on October 30th, but in here I see there was a session on the weekend, Did I miss any announcements or any email, please advice, thanks.

There was an email sent out on the 20th of October about the workshop. It’s not officially part of the course, but they decided to run a special hands-on introductory workshop. It’s good to look over the wiki thread and go through what you missed. You’ll also find a link to the workshop video on YouTube.

thanks @abdel, I am catching up on the video right now, for some reason I didn’t get that email I even checked if it was in the spam folder.
