Question of the Week

This week, not as much a question but a call to action by Emmanuel Drouet. As you might have noticed, Emmanuel is creating Bundles, and once he has a first release ready, he shares a short video showing the Bundle on his YouTube channel. You can join his "One Monday One Bundle" initiative:

  • Create a bundle
  • Produce a short video of the first release (less than 2 minutes)
  • Contact Emmanuel on Slack through DM to have your video published on his channel
