Pen and paper!

Here is a quick overview of the conventions I will use here, where I get a few more formatting options.

Breakout Boxes

Throughout the text I will be using breakout boxes. I will use this as a way to highlight important points or make tasks clear.

I also use notes to replace the side-tracks that tend to happen during lectures.


A question to think about and discuss as a community.


An exercise to complete.

There are different levels:


You should be able to do this to pass the module with a decent grade.


Being able to complete this should give you a good grade.


Optional harder task for those who want to test their skills


Something interesting that I would add as a side note in lectures.


An example of whatever we have been talking about.


Lets you know something is important. It is probably a good idea to pay attention.


Another way of talking about something interesting.


A tip, or another thing that might be worth knowing.

Spotted a bug or typo?

Writing this content is hard because of how much content goes into it, and the nature of the topic.

If you find a bug, typo, factual error or even just have a good idea for improvement, let me know. Drop me a message.

Thank you.
