Instructions for Day 8

Hello Everybody,

We can't believe it is Friday already. We hope you are enjoying week 2 of our training workshop.

We went through the user pages again and certified where appropriate. Congratulations, well done! Some of you have really made progress since last week. A few others are almost there, don't forget to demonstrate the skills you have learned last week on your user pages, so we will be able to certify you.
