We are delighted to announce and provide early access to our new interactive KX Academy sandbox 🎉
What is the KX Academy?
KX Academy is a free online portal for on-demand learning for everything KX. There you will find training videos, access to a cloud hosted KX sandbox environment fully loaded with KX software, course materials as well as exercises so users can work through material at their own pace.
What is the KX Academy sandbox?
The new KX Academy sandbox leverages Project JupyterHub which is a multi-user Hub that spawns, manages, and proxies multiple instances of a single-user Jupyter notebook server. It is used widely in Academic institutions and has excellent documentation and an active online community.
The new sandbox uses JupyterHub by giving users access to computational environments loaded with KX software and KX training materials without burdening the users with installation and maintenance tasks.
This will replace the existing learn.kx.com used by students via our self-serve KX Academy.

We're very keen to get this right to have the best experience for our users and iron out any kinks so your feedback is greatly appreciated.
Some additional Information about the Environment
Be aware that this is a KX funded resource and as such we actively monitor and inspect the usage of the service, including but not limited to content inside the users environment and the network traffic generated by it.

The original sandbox was already an incredible resource, but these updates take it to another level! 👏🏻 Thanks for sharing @Michaela!

It seems like a link to KX Fundamentals Course doesn't work.
BTW, thanks a bunch for your effort to make all KX Academy workshops. They are very useful 🙂
