It´s one task every week. This way you can follow the training at your time.


If you already know one task, you may skip it.

If you´re busy, you can miss one week and came back later.

You can join anytime!


And please make questions. I´m sure I will not be able to reply to every single question, but this is the most important part of this training! and I believe community can help either, so please, let us know what you think.
