The Getting Started Guide to becoming an open source Neurotechnology Guru.

With the hype created around Elon Musk's Neuralink initiative, there has been a surge in interest in getting involved in the field of neurotechnology. However many people are not ever sure how to get started. This talk will provide an overview of how someone with no technical experience can get involved in the field and contribute in an open source fashion.
