On March 22 (PST) we will be performing site maintenance on the Lynda.com database to improve performance, which requires taking down the Lynda.com website for a short period of time. The work is being done between 9pm-12am PST (3 hours), but we will only have a maximum of 1 hour of down time. We do not know exactly when within the 3 hours window we will be down. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
