Please add more context on Timer Configurations, especially on how it is being handled by a scheduler and for the certain properties such as "When Published" on how it's being handled behind the scenes.

Helpful course and much needed.
Could be improved if there were some insight about timers metadata and what to do with exceptions (namely with db exceptions) in timers. A link to documentation could also be provided.
Exercise with standard Timer BP implementation is well detailed.
