下方清單是作為 CMF設計師 需要配備的軟體技能，按功能分組。看起來或許很多，但其實不需要精通所有的軟體，而且大多數同功能的軟體都大同小異、易於上手。
Below is a list of software needed to be equipped as a CMF Designer, grouped by functionality. It may seems a lot, but you don’t need to master in all of these software, as most software of the same functionality are similar and easy to catch-up.
More importantly, it is better to adapt to the software used by the team. For instance, if the team uses Google Hangouts for conference calls, you should switch to the same software even if you used to use another method for conference calls. The purpose is to avoid hiccups during team collaborations.
