Leap Training on a Budget
Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome!
If you’re here, you likely attended my talks about Leap Training on a Budget at the Innovative Users Group annual conference! I’m not a professor, so I don’t want to trouble my audience with the need to furiously scribble notes and keep track of whatever it is I happen to be saying. That in mind, here are a bunch of links and resources!
And if you have any questions or comments for me, you can always reach me via:
cyberpunklibrarian (at) protonmail (dot) com.
My presentations slides are available below in a variety of formats.
