Given the subject matter I cover, you’re probably either a student or a working professional trying to tool up. Good for you! You’re in good company. If you're not, that's okay too.

I love education. I paid a lot of money in tuition to learn software that is a) incredibly useful while being incredibly expensive and b) constantly going obsolete and being updated.

Essentially, learning software in a University is a frustratingly expensive sham. You pay a lot of money to learn a tool that you will probably forget how to use by the time you need to use it and then need to re-learn because the version you were taught is now obsolete. In addition to this, chances are that the faculty you’re paying to teach you this software probably haven’t used the software they’re teaching in a production environment for a long time and aren’t aware of or understand the application of the new features added (the ones rendering the old versions obsolete) that you are now expected to use professionally.

Now, I can’t teach you your industry, but I’m super good at teaching about and staying on top of software and software updates. I’m also a huge fan of information being free. I think it’s awesome to be able to go online when I am at a dead end and pull up answers from active, qualified professionals who have donated their knowledge for the general benefit of humanity.

So, here’s how this works. My content will always and forever be yours, for free. Because I care about you and because I care about producing quality content, you can become my patron. This is totally voluntary. This is also awesome for both of us, plus the entire rest of the internet. Together, we can prioritize training content creation.

At the end of the month, you donate an amount equal to the number of video tutorials I produce times the amount you want to donate per video. You can also set a monthly maximum so I can’t accidentally render you bankrupt.

I, in no way shape or form, intend to change the “forever available for free” thing I’ve got going on. Regardless of whether or not you become a patron, these videos will always be there, for you, for free. This is because I really enjoy sharing what I know through making videos and answering questions. With your support, I can continue to prioritize training content creation and get rid of some of those video ads! Advertising money is wonderful, but even minimally invasive ads get annoying. Annoying means you get sick of it and leave or use sneaky methods to disable ads, which in the end means less ads are played and it’s harder to justify the time to create the content that both you and I would like.

Think it over. Regardless of what you decide to do, thank you for taking the time to view my content!

Thank you for supporting my channel! You are probably awesome, even if you block the ads on my videos. You probably already use Adblock Plus to do it. If you donate at least a buck I give you permission to use it guilt free with my blessing!

I will reward you with a gift of digital substance: viewing rights to the screencast calendar. Now you can get excited in advance!

Look at you! You're 5 times more generous than the $1 folk! In addition to everything above, I'll make you a part of my video pre-production discussions. You'll get access to my brainstorming and project tracking. You will also be able to vote up the priority of content and give your feedback before the video is even made! Mind blown. So excitement! Such donation!

Wow. Three grand. If you pay this for a single video, my wife and I will personally take you to dinner somewhere in the United States (or Canada, when she gets her passport). In addition to this, I will shower you with gifts befit a renaissance patron such as world class chocolates, cheeses, oils, and vinegars. I will make sure your significant other gets amazing flowers *from you* on his/her birthday, your anniversary, and Valentine's for a whole year (given this information is provided). I will get you a puppy (optional). You will also be honored as the personal Medici Godfather of my channel (no kidding!).
