    I look forward to meeting all the participants at the workshop!

    Workshop materials will be posted in this discussion thread soon.

    Participants will need to bring their own Windows laptops and install the analytics software before coming to the workshop. Instructions will be posted in the workshop materials.

    See you in Singapore!
