Living Room / Ideas for "Knowledge Snacks" Marathon
« on: September 12, 2020, 11:43 AM »
Hello, Everybody!

A while ago I started a Reddit community dedicated to educational GIFs that implement the idea of microlearning or "knowledge snacks" - bite-sized pieces of educational conent that is easy to digest, post and share everywhere. However, did not have time to properly promote it at the moment.

Now I have an idea of "99 knowledge nuggets" marathon, during which I will create 99 educational GIFs on my own to provide some initial content for the community.

I am researching ideas, but the area is too vague... So I decided to ask for your help to identify 99 educational micro-content ideas that are interesting to a common curious person and could be fit in up to 5 slides. I think it should cover different areas of knowledge - not only math/physics, but also history, art, music and popular culture. I'd greatly appreciate your ideas! Thank you in advance.

Found Deals and Discounts / "Make Batch Files" discounts

"Make Batch Files" is a GUI tool that helps to create Windows Batch Files quickly and easily, without even knowing commands and switches.

Black Friday / Cyber Monday 2016: 50% off

Hello, everybody!

I'd like to introduce you to my new project called "Make Batch Files". It's in alpha version now, but has enough functions to play with.

The main ideas are pretty simple:
  • No need to remember batch file command names
  • No need to remember numerous switches, their meanings and how they work together
  • "Tasks" instead of commands

Say, you need to upload a file via FTP from a batch file and this is the first or second time you do this trick. First, you need to find out what command to call to use ftp, then you need to learn how to use it in batch files, investigate it's script file format and etc. What a waste of time  :) With my tool you only need to add "Upload a file via FTP" task to your project, specify host, username, password and file path using comfortable GUI dialog and that's it. The tool will create several lines of code including ftp script for you in a single mouse click.

Hope you got the idea  :) ANY feedback is welcome (even largely negative)!

Video Tutorial (better in fullscreen mode)

Hello, Everybody!

My name is Dmitri Popov, I am the author of Helpinator.

WordPress is so popular now that even my cat knows how to install and use it.
It has tons of themes and plugins and a very active community.
Well, it's not perfect, but if you create an app - you can get your site up and running in minutes and there are a lot of inexpensive themes to make it look professional.

Online documentation (or WebHelp) for your product is another good idea - it's SEO-friendly, easy to update and access. But authoring online documentation in WordPress editor or a post-oriented desktop client is a kind of tedious work. This is where Helpinator helpinates your problems. It's a specialized help authoring tool, you can capture screenshots, annotate them, create step-by-step guides, write topics in WYSIWYG editor and then publish to WordPress with a single mouse click!

This post on our blog shows how easy it is to connect Helpinator and WordPress:

Thank you for reading this :)
