Hi Tomaz,

Great to know you are interested in our OBR workshop. There are three live webinars at the following dates and times:

  1. 26.09.2016 at 6:30-8:00 PM IST (15:00-16:30 CEST)
  2. 29.09.2016 at 6:30-8:00 PM IST (15:00-16:30 CEST)
  3. 05.10.2016 at 6:30-8:00 PM IST (15:00-16:30 CEST)

The workshop ends officially on October 7th, because even after the final webinar our experts from the OBR R&D team will closely monitor incoming questions and discussions in the related forum. This means you can continue working on your OBR content and get more help and guidance in the forum.

Btw: the email after registration is not sent automatically. It can take a while until registered participants receive the invitations and details about the workshop. The first set of emails will be delivered tomorrow.

Best regards

Hi Chris,

unfortunately it was not possible to publish recordings of the live sessions.
But I have some good news for you: beginning in February we will start a series of OBR webinars covering all sorts of practitioner topics and real-world scenarios. There will be monthly sessions and you'll see announcements on this forum soon.

Best regards
