Hey John Lindquist
Thanks for the AMA!
What sort of challenges you have faced on making Egghead.io a thriving business and what steps did you follow to overcome them?
If you had to become an inanimate object for a year, what object would it be?
Hi Corey, thanks for the thoughtful questions:
- I deal mostly with the "Instructor" side of things for egghead, so I'll touch on that. Our instructors have full-time jobs and personal lives. They're very busy. We help a lot of people get started on the instructor side of things, but then their lives get busy and we often lose contact with them. We've sunk a lot of time and effort into lessons that never happened.
We overcome this with patience and following-up. Sometimes years later. Instructors have always been grateful for our follow-ups.
I just used the Foam Gatsby Starter :D. I'm seriously considering moving to Next.js though as we're rebuilding egghead with Next.js and I'm absolutely loving it.
