As you may recall hearing from us earlier in the year, the LaunchPad team has standing Wednesday releases scheduled. As a result, we’d like you to assume that between 4 am and 8am Eastern on Wednesdays we may be having a release that may require downtime. You should not have assignments due then just in case.
Using that same model, the team would also like time for more advanced work, like database improvements, on the weekends this summer. Consequently, there is the possibility for a release every Saturday in June and July from 3am to 8am Eastern for all products in the LaunchPad family of products; do not have any assignments due during that time. We will return to our standard release schedule in August, as the Fall classes will be starting; the additional release windows are only for June and July.
We hope that by giving you advanced notice, even though we may not use every Wednesday and every Saturday, that it makes scheduling your short, intense summer classes that much easier.
