Back in June, we opened the "early adaptor" doors to the Oracle Dev Gym, a modern, mobile website on top of the PL/SQL Challenge's quiz platform.
We've gotten lots of great feedback and continue to develop the site (with plans to make it generally available in Q1 CY2017).
The next feature we will be releasing on the Dev Gym is Classes .
Classes will offer us multiple opportunities to present workouts and quizzes to users.
For example, on Friday 26 August, I will hold a "live" Dev Gym workout at a Chicago Oracle Group event . We will do this via a Class. Other classes in the future will be tied to monthly webcasts and more.
And now my request for help: I'd much rather expose and fix any bugs a week before the event, rather than at the event itself. :-)
So I have set up a test class for everyone starting at 18 August 15:00 UTC (10 AM US Central time).
I'd like as many of you as possible to take the quizzes in the two hours that the class will be open - and if at all possible, start the workout promptly at 15:00.
It consists simply of three quizzes, so it won't take you long to do.
To take a class, simply click on the Classes link in the left side navigation bar:
Then click on the name of the class you want to take (there will only be one on Thursday):
Finally, click on the Join Class button and you will be added as a student for the class. You can do this anytime before and during the class. If you have turned on reminders for quizzes, you will also receive email reminders for this class.
If you join the class after it's started, you will be taken right to the class workout.
We are working hard to keep this site simple and intuitive, so I hope that you will be able to navigate through the class without any difficulty.
If you do run into any sorts of problems, or have ideas for how we can improve Dev Gym Classes, just click on Feedback on the top right corner of the page:
Thanks in advance for your help!
Oh and if you have not yet taken quizzes at the PL/SQL Challenge or Dev Gym, now would be a great time to get started!
Once you are signed in to your Oracle Account, you'll be ready to go.
