Intro To MDX Decathlon–Introduction

30 July, 2012 (13:00) | Decathlon, MDX | By: Mark V

For quite some time now, I have had an idea in the back of my head right next to some useless trivia about Sherlock Holmes. A blog series with ten parts, called a Decathlon, would be really cool. Particularly with the Olympics Games in London having just started, now is a great time to get this going. I have ideas for more Decathlons, but I figured I would start with one on MDX.

I have taken content from my MDX Trek: First Contact presentation and broken it up into 10 easily digestible chunks. The source data for this can be found here. The list below will serve as the map to each post. I will update it as each new post is released.
