Free Education for Everyone:

All our videos (347) and pages (800+) are for FREE. Since 2011 we were supported by Google Adsense and donated large amounts of our time (after work) to develop this website. 

In May 2014 we have released membership and our members enjoy extra benefits and at the same time support development of new features and free content.

By the end of 2014 we aim to:

  • Introduce more feature that will help our members to learn faster in order to get a job, get a better job, pass an exam or simply become more knowledgeable.
  • Reduce reliance on Google Ads and thanks to members so far:
    • 53% page views are ads free (82,000 page views per month).
    • 14% of Videos are ads free (50 out of 347 videos)

Do you like what we do?

We would love to hear from you and share it with our visitors. Post a review (kudos).

Our Vision

Education should be for free and it is on our website. Every single article and video is 100% FREE of charge.

How do pay for it and justify time to do more? This website is supported by annoying (sometimes) ads but we want to make it ads free and we want to do that by introducing useful features to members.

When a certain number of members (which depends on usage = page views / per month) sign up in one country than we switch off Page Ads for this country completely, so far Poland and Japan enjoy Page Ads Free experience!

In the next sevearal weeks we will entirely focus on members features and once we reach a certain level we will return to doing new articles and videos.

We make mistakes :)

In today's world being 'perfect' becomes an obsession? We are not perfect, actually we make a lot of mistakes, we sometimes say things we don't want to say, we sometimes make people feel sad although we do not intend to, we write SQL Code ;) and re-write until it works, we record a video and re-do it to take our major imperfections and leave minor imperfections and so on!

Does that make us sad or lower our confidence? Absolutely not! This is who we are... but we want to get better and these are 5 rules we want to follow (taken from Verbal Judo book):

  1. All people want to be treated with dignity and respect.
  2. All people want to be asked than told to do something.
  3. All people want to be informed as to why they are being asked or ordered to do something.
  4. All people want to given options rather than threats.
  5. All people want a second chance when they make a mistake.

Simple rules but not easy to follow and Dale Carniage books helps us with that :)

and below is a song that keeps us going :)

Take care

Katie & Emil

Comment: Your videos and web pages are clear and crisp. Your cover basics in few minutes which is what I liked the most. Advise: How about adding notes\videos little deeper into the topics. All the best ! Keep Rocking !

Comment: Hi Satish, I'm glad to hear you like it. Currently we develop membership with extra feature and hope to get funding that can sponsor new content. My contract finished end of August so I hope to do a few more videos. Take care Emil
