I was thinking on two main personas : Data Scientist and Data Engineers.
And at least for the Data Scientist, we might have to have topics for both
R and Python.

In summary, I would say :

Getting Started for Data Scientists (note that we should have a version for
R and Python):

 - Creating algorithms with SystemML : this is kind a helloworld where a
Data Scientist creates and runs a very simple algorithm.

- Running existing algorithms with SystemML : in this scenario, we would
guide the data scientist on how to run an algorithm from the sample library
from SystemML. We should also guide the data scientist to choose the right
algorithm for his/her specific problem.

- Customizing existing algorithms with SystemML: in this scenario, we would
guide the data scientist to start making customization and applying the
algorithm for different data sets.

Getting started for Data Engineers:

- Overview of different options/runtimes supported by SystemML

- Debugging SystemML ???

- Engine development guide ???

Thoughts ?
