It is best if you do not miss a class. We generally do not record sessions. Hence, it is unlikely that there will be a recording available for you. You can get 15-20 minute catch up time with the Course Lead on the key things covered in the session. However, since all the sessions are designed for learning based on interactions, it is best to be there for these interactions.
We still continue with the sessions as planned.
