Today I Learned

A month ago I saw an article on Hacker News about someone who created a github repo, in which they recorded any interesting and resuable solutions to the problems they encountered.

I started doing the same thing, storing little markdown files inside my 'utils' repo (the private repository where I keep copies of all the little tools I use on every machine, plus my powershell profile etc.)

Pretty quickly I had 100 such files, and I looked into what I could do with this growing knowledge base. I found out about 'gitbook' which is a way of rapidly turning a github repo full of little markdown files into a genuine book.

So here's the product... the free book I wrote without trying to write a book...

Today I Learned (TIL.secretGeek.net)

(and here's the git repo, error corrections welcome!)

Inside that book, I've written a short article on "getting started with gitbook" so you can do the same thing, including details on how to use gitbook locally (for example for documentation inside the enterprise!)

 

I'm currently writing a book about how to build your first product. If you want to build your first product, please sign up to be notified when the book is available.

(By the way, I read every comment and often respond.)
