    Data Platform University: Advanced Analytics in Azure – Overview & Roadmap
    October 13th, 2015
    This is not listed in the registration list . Can you confirm?

  2. Hi Resident X10 – You are correct, that is not on the list any longer. We have removed it from the new October version of the Hot Sheet. We check links each week to identify changes–thanks for pointing this out. – dg

  3. ResidentX10 says:

    Is there a new list for October? When I search Bing I can only find September.

  4. ResidentX10 says:

    You got with that comment, Diane…we're still in September 🙂

  5. Yes, if you click on "Training schedule" at the top of the blog, it shows you a list of all of the Hot Sheets. We just published the October post today. It includes all remaining September training, all of October, and all of November. Even some December.
    You can also use the link http://aka.ms/current-hot-sheet to see the most current version of the Hot Sheet.
