Besides the links Jackson suggested above, I'm sharing here and on
social media the following tips:

1) You may want to learn how to use virtual machines once testing is
supposed to break the system, ok?

2) Lubuntu Screencast about Virtualbox Guest Additions

3) Another view about VirtualBox Guest Additions:

4) How to use zsync:

5) Classroom sessions from the previous cycle, but still worthy to
learn for any cycle:

6) Class about QA Tracker.

Suggestion: do not miss bdmurray session about bug reporting!

Happy testing for everybody!
