Understand where and why we use YAML. As you get familiar with the idea of YAML, checkout Gitlab and it's use of YAML for Continuous Integration and Deployment. Install Atom and configure it to read and show errors for YAML. This will enable you to move on to the following lectures.
Time to get into the details of YAML. Learn how to use Boolean, Integer/Decimal, String mappings in different ways. Once you have mastered basic scaler types, start using Arrays and Maps.

Test yourself with Quizzes and Assignments. Use Anchors like variables and call upon them with aliases. Even extend on them with additional properties.
