This mini lecture course tries to bridge the gap between theoretical predictions and experimental measurements. I will discuss in some detail the tasks and subtleties experimentalists and theorists have to take care of to be able to make a discovery at the LHC. The outlined concepts are important for present and future measurements of the recently discovered resonance. Equipped with the basic concepts of collider phenomenology from the first two lectures, in the last lecture I intend to discuss new ideas of how to measure the properties of this resonance. The introductory lectures are designed for PhD students and young postdocs.
