     7=== What you will learn ===
     8
     9At the end of this exercise, you will be able to:
     10  * Use and understand the following terms:
     11    - Resource Specification (aka RSpec)
     12    - sliver
     13    - Aggregate Manager API (AM API)
     14  * Customize the resources they reserve using standard mechanisms:
     15    - understand that a resource specification (RSpec) is an XML file
     16    - understand that resources are reserved using the aggregate manager API (AM API)
     17    - understand how to load a topology using an RSpec
     18    - have edited an RSpec using a tool (Flack) as well as by hand
     19    - have reserved and deleted resources using a command line tool (omni)
     20    - know how to specify the image to load on a compute node
     21    - know how to have software automatically loaded and run on a compute node
     22    - have run a simple layer 2 experiment
     23  * Use multiple tools to act on a slice and reserve resources
     24    - understand that all tools use common mechanisms to describe resources (RSpecs) and to reserve resources (the AM API)
     25  * Understand the strengths of different types of GENI racks
