Depending on what group you are participating in, your tasks are varied to meet your skill level. The beauty of this approach is you can tackle the daily challenges based on your need and current skill set. If you feel you are advanced in one area, but intermediate in another, hop around! It’s this fabulous flexibility that will make this edition of SITS31DBBB the best one yet. Another aspect of the SITS31DBBB that we love is the support element. You are connecting while learning and that is really what this event is all about. As we near the close of the week, we want to provide you with some additional article links covering some of the questions we saw most in the forums as you tackled the week’s challenges.
