    • You know how to use your computer, your operating system and programs. (You don't expect me to teach you those things.)
  • Share:
    • You will share what you learn with others.
    • You will help later students catch up.
    • You will help translate if needed.
    • If you borrow any book from me, you will return it so that other people can use it too.
    • Other students are allowed to attend any session i have with you, unless you have very good cause you can explain to me otherwise. (Internals of organisation, etc.)
