Howdy all!

At CanvasCon 2017 in Sydney, I raised the idea on our community panel discussion that a document to help find someone to speak to could be really useful.

I am going to keep this pretty fluid, I have added some columns that I think would be helpful, none are mandatory, and I happily welcome comments and edits to make this the most AWESOME document ever written (hey, one has to have a dream right?).


So, if you have an area of expertise that you feel could help someone else new to Canvas, and you are happy for them to get into contact, please feel free to add yourself. (I welcome ideas on the best way to keep this sorted, perhaps by Institution?).
