Introduction


About


This presentation is meant to be interactive, where the attendees look at the various resources and decide what they want to focus on. There are many resources to peruse, focus on ones that you may be able to use and look at the rest later if you like. Don't sweat the amount of information, you don't need to learn everything here, I just wanted you to have the opportunity to see a variety of tools.
