Just finished up a course taught by Sean Mohseni. Excellent instructor. If you can find a course he's teaching, its well worth it.

It was a pretty good general overview. To actually use this stuff, however, I recognize that there would need to be a further dive.

I am very satisfied with the course and teacher(Bill), and with the given option I will play with labs more after the class is over. Thank you

J’aime cet environnement, je vois qu’on peut faire beaux de chose la dessus. J’aime ce genre de projet ou environnement bien fait.
