Terrific information and resource here, Phil.
Thank you.

You're welcome, Muslimah. Hope you found it helpful.

Wow, impressive training post Phil! Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us :)


After I finished it, I realized how big it was. So I'm repeating it as training here, with each section as a separate page.

Wow, Phil! An info overload here, my friend! I can understand possibly making a course, but I don't feel that I am a very good teacher, especially when this technology is advancing so fast that anything anyone comes up with will fall into somewhat obsolecense eventually, but you provide a dearth of good information here! Keep doing what you do!


Thanks, Jeff. I'll certainly be making use of this approach for my next course development.

You're right about the information overload. That's why I'm also breaking it down into a WA training course, with each part as a separate lesson.

Thanks, Phil! Much appreciated!


Thanks for sharing, Phil. That's a great resource.

My pleasure, Richard.

All your links are in good working order :)

Good to know :-). Thanks.

You're welcome, enjoy your weekend :)
