It's almost 5am now but I am finally done. Our new secret business idea is life.
What is it all about? Well maybe it is best if you see for yourself.
The basic problem is that I have fallen in love with git. To deal with this addiction and to put it to good use, I decided to make screencasts about git.
However, I am not talking about the stuff you see everywhere else, but real quality material. It took me probably 3-4 days to produce the first screencast about resolving merge conflicts. Lots of it was because I explored technologies and techniques for production, but I think most of the future screencasts will still take a solid day of work.
But ... I also want to make some money with this : ). So here is the deal. Some material on the site (I will write quite some text in future) will be free. I'll also publish some shorter behind the scenes videos that show some of the things I have to cut out or interesting observations I make about git.
The real screencasts themselves however cost money. I set the price to $5.99 right now for the first 13 minute long screencast. I don't know if that is too high for most people, but it I think its a good value for what you are getting. After all looking over somebody's shoulder for ~$30 / hour is pretty cheap when learning a new technology : ).
Anyway, the site needs work & touches all over the place, but I really am forcing myself into "make it work" and then "make it work better" mode here. Too many small side projects of mine died because I got caught up in details. Won't happen with this one.
Alright, let me know what you think folks - I'm looking forward to some feedback, hopefully from some people who bought the screencast as well : ).
