Good to have this feedback.  If we have some sort of a hands-on session,
we’ll try to have good videos, though I guess it’s hard to make good
videos from in-person sessions.  We’ll see!

Did you look at some of the videos at <>?
These are clearly not tutorials, but there are demos, and I wonder how
useful that is as a complement to the manual(s).
