Second post + created a Youtube channel

Stephen Jensen @stephenjensen

My initial market is going to be coders who want to take their React.js skills to a professional level by learning how to deploy their site to a production-grade environment. I found that for myself when I was starting out, I wasted a lot of time building a project that in retrospect was on shaking footing and then later tried to unwind all those issues later.

Now, I find that starting a project off right can save hundreds of hours of time later. Given this set of developers who would be interested in my content, I want to take a piece of advice from Amy Hoy who suggests creating free content in a particular niche to build credibility and then creating paid content later.

So in that spirit, my goal this week was to publish a second post about how to properly organize your code in git so that you can make Marie Kondo proud! I went through how to create a staging and production branch and how you can do all your scratch work in feature branches that you merge into staging when they are ready.

I also created a YouTube channel and recorded a video to go along with the blog post. My hypothesis is that some people learn by reading and others prefer to watch videos so if I can create the same content for both mediums I can capture a broader audience.
