I’ve spent time going through the content available for Yellowfin on YouTube and it’s pretty comprehensive. I’ve put together a list of videos worth watching to understand Yellowfin a bit better. The first section is a quick overview of each, the second is more comprehensive. I’ve included some other useful links too for more specialised guides.

    Hi Ivan – thanks for the comment. It seemed to be defaulting to the first video on the Youtube playlist rather than the one specified. Should be all fixed now.
