A Beginner's guide to mining zCash

I started experimenting with zCash about 2-3 months ago. At the time, I had published a blog post to my main audience (data center / IT professionals) to introduce them to zCash mining and share my initial experiences. In the light of what I learned during this time (in great part thanks to this forum), I’ve updated the article today.

My goal isn’t by any means to cover the topic end-to-end, but mainly to explain what to look at and get people started. After consulting with @paige I decided to share it here. This is not a tutorial about how to set up the ABC graphic adapter with the XYZ miner to mine on the JKL pool. Nevertheless, I hope it will be of help to some of you who are just beginning!
