Why can't I access the Kafka short course at the Academy?

When trying to access below links, the page is forwarded to Academy dashboard link, and I can see few options in catalog.

Do the [short] DataStax Apache Kafka™ Connector course at DataStax Academy.

I'm not able to find Apache Kafka connector course. When I try to look for Kafka word in Search, nothing is reported. Is there any issue with my user? I can see that academy site has changed.

I'm not sure if this link will work for you but give this a try -> https://datastax.myabsorb.com/#/online-courses/56e13a5d-c753-436c-bc3a-7c18b2ae30bc. If that link doesn't work just login to Academy, choose "DataStax Academy" at the bottom of the page, and then choose the "Kafka Connector" course. It should be there now. You can also search for "Kafka" in the search bar to bring you to the same course.

Yeah, I have tried today morning, and now I can see the Kafka connector training already available. I have already enrolled. Thank you.

We have migrated to a new and improved DataStax Academy earlier today which was also announced during the workshop.

We, the Developer Advocate team (hosts of the workshop) only just found out that the old short courses are temporarily unavailable from the new Academy site. This isn't unusual as we are constantly making changes to address the needs of users.

I will update this post when the DataStax Apache Kafka™ Connector course is available again.

Thanks for attending our workshops. Cheers!
