Hi, I’m Kevin Yank! I’m best known for writing books and video courses on web technologies like JavaScript and PHP. Now I’m starting something new: Screencast a Week, one short video a week to help you get the most out of your Mac, devices like iPhone and iPad, and whatever else I come up with!

The gadgets and apps we use every day are full of obscure-but-awesome features. I love unearthing these, and finding amazing ways to use them together. And with Screencast a Week, I’ll show you the best stuff I’ve found.

Mostly, I’m a Mac nerd, so Screencast a Week will cover lots of obscure OS X tips and tricks. Mac apps in general often are full of hidden preferences, shortcuts and ways to combine them into awesome workflows, so I’ll be showing off plenty of these too. If you own an iPhone or iPad, you can also look forward to some tips for those too.

Take a look at the first four episodes:

Producing videos that look and sound great is a lot of work, so I could really use your support! Patrons will have access to my behind-the-scenes posts here on Patreon. Depending on your level of support, you can also get episodes a week before they go public, access high-quality DRM-free video downloads, and more!

If you can’t afford to pay for Screencast a Week, that’s okay. I’ll publish every episode for free on YouTube, and I appreciate you watching. I respect your time and attention, and if you choose to spend it on Screencast a Week, that’s awesome—and so are you. :)

Full-quality DRM-free downloads. Want to take episodes on the go where bandwidth is expensive? Or maybe your Internet connection isn’t so hot, but you want to watch in full quality. Or maybe you just have a taste for the finer things! This pledge level gets you a high-quality, DRM-free 1080p video file of each episode, yours to keep forever.

Shout out in the credits. Wow, you really love what I do! Your name (in whatever form you like, good taste permitting) will appear at the end of every episode that you support at this level. Because you’re awesome.

It’s called Screencast a Week, but without your help I might only be able to make episodes from time to time. With this level of support, I’ll devote the time to produce an episode of Screencast a Week each and every week, thus living up to the name!
