Hi @User, unfortunately I can't attend at the time this workshop would be conducted. It would be great if this course is integrated into Udemy/LinkedIn learning type platform so it can be taken at our own pace. I will struggle to take 5 days out, but could spare a few evenings spread across some weeks!

Udemy is theory and lab watching only. Workshops are exclusively labs only so cannot be linked to Udemy as it doesn't provide linux instances You can refer to below Udemy courses (wait for discounts) https://www.udemy.com/course/vlsi-academy-sta-checks/ https://www.udemy.com/course/vlsi-academy-sta-checks-2/
