High Advanced/Expert level: Technology concepts and implementation will be discussed in detail. Assumes fluency with the technology being discussed. Most likely to appeal to practitioners responsible for technology on a day-to-day basis
Medium Intermediate level. Technology concepts and implementation will be discussed, but the focus will be on decision-making and trends around the technology, rather than on the detailed working of the technology itself. Assumes familiarity with technical concepts but not necessarily detailed, hands-on knowledge.
Low Introductory or Business level. Technology concepts and implementation are addressed from a high level if at all, with the focus instead being on markets, industry trends, or leadership strategies in which the technology plays a role. No prior knowledge of the technology is required to understand the discussion.
