During this session, we invite you to bring your laptop and we'll help you install some of the tools you may have heard about but have had trouble setting up. We only have an hour, so what you're able to install and how long it takes will depend on demand. Remember also that you must have administrative privileges on your machine; if you're blocked from these privileges, we won't be able to override that.

She has a master's degree in food systems, which is more relevant to her job than you'd expect.
