Feel free to add to this list, with any suggestions for aspects you are interested in learning more about. I know there are others in NIWA who use these tools, and hope that they will also help train and mentor NIWA staff to grow the use of these tools in NIWA. The initial list is from emails from staff who have contacted me about this training. I note that some of these topics are outside my expertise, but there are other NIWA staff I'm aware of that I can ask to cover most of these.
