After getting bullied for asking about access to the course with other tools than Compass, I progressed in the course to the point where it is required to use the full Compass edition (as opposed to the free Community edition I started with), which is said to be a subscription based software.
Can someone please clarify the licencing requirements to take this course?
I have installed the full Compass and so far it seems to be working without any license, but is it because it is a trial version that will expire after 14 days or so? Can I complete the whole course without having to have a subscription?
Also, there is no pricing provided on the website for getting a subscription, so I suppose the prices are set per company (based on sales person estimation of what each company can afford to pay). I am taking this course as I private person, and I am not going to ask my company to buy subscription for the client tools, because we already have licenses for another product. My company is already paying lots of money for the Atlas database services, so it would be “fair” to ask either for a student license, or allow access with other tools. Unless the course is solely focusing on the features of the full Compass edition, which by the way is not mentioned at all on the course description page.
