Try a Technology you’ve been intimidated by

It's Beginner Week, but that doesn't mean the topics are easy! We all have pieces of tech that we’re intimidated to try out. It might be open source, blockchain, cryptology, artificial intelligence…the list goes on and on for us! The best way to conquer this fear is by trial and error.
