How to get the most out of this workshop

  • This workshop is primarily a series of short demos.
  • Experience and attendee feedback has shown that most users in this setting (attending a major conference, potentially limited internet, lecture seating) are usually looking to evaluate and follow up with information rather than detailed training
  • Slides and tutorials will be available at this link for follow up at your own pace.
  • The workshop will conclude with resources on how to follow up and get more help and training.
