Please, add your comments if you have thoughts about making this structure better and more detailed – let's try to systemize this area together. We promise to design a poster (and to leave a PDF file with it here) when we have enough material and coverage.

Don't hesitate to share it with your friends and in social networks, if you consider this material useful for others. The more people read this post, the more ideas we'll have, and the better result we'll get.

And may the force [of competence] be with you! :)
