    An open source multi-tool for exploring and publishing data

    I found this so useful. I'm building a suite of open source tools at https://datasette.io/ and the section "Teaching is the most impactful aspect of tool building" was something of a light bulb for me.

    "To maximize your impact, then, teaching must be central to your strategy. This means documentation, tutorials, examples, videos, tweets, and more."

    I have pretty comprehensive documentation ( https://docs.datasette.io/ ) but almost nothing in the way of tutorials - and I added a demo video to the website just last week.

    This has given me a ton to think about. Thanks, Mike!
