First, the Featured Platforms section. These are the platforms mentioned most by our audience. The vital stats of each platform are listed below the chapter for easy reference. The narrative section of each listing describes the platform’s technical traits and provides a commentary on its various aspects ranging from curriculum to the user interface and beyond.
