You will notice that the topic titles correspond to the pages of the course listed on the left. After each webinar, we will upload the recording to our YouTube channel and embed the video in the corresponding page, so if you cannot make a particular webinar, you can always catch up later.

Exercises to test what you have learnt

After each webinar video, there are pages in each section of this course with exercises (and their solutions), which will enable you to practice using what you have learnt. Each set of exercises should take you no more than an hour, and you can space them out and do them at your own pace.
