{"ops":[{"insert":"Hi all,\n\nOver the years, I have tried to contribute towards education and technical deep-dives for Ethereum. \n\nMy motivation to help with education has always to 1) remove misconceptions that sprawl up due to marketing and unachievable expectations and 2) to give back to a community that has taught me so much (from irc channels, mailing lists, telegram groups, god forbid even CT). \n\nI volunteer once a month to teach a weekend developer bootcamp in London, I travel to conferences to teach technical content and also offered a free 10-week cryptocurrency course (links below). \n\nI really enjoy teaching and giving back to the community, but one obstacle I always run into is that it is really hard to get a good recording of the talk so I can put it up on youtube!\n\nI always rely on others to record, edit and post the video. Sometimes this works out really well, and other times not so great. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"So I am hoping for some small donations here to help me towards purchasing:"},{"insert":"\n\nA \"starter\" DLSR camera\nhttps://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B079Y45KTJ/ref=dp_cerb_1\nA lavalier recorder:\n"},{"attributes":{"link":"https://www.gear4music.com/PA-DJ-and-Lighting/Rode-SC6-L-Interview-Kit/2M9I?origin=product-ads&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIy_DpxKD65gIVGPhRCh2eAA1OEAQYBSABEgLhRvD_BwE"},"insert":"https://www.gear4music.com/PA-DJ-and-Lighting/Rode-SC6-L-Interview-Kit/2M9I?origin=product-ads&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIy_DpxKD65gIVGPhRCh2eAA1OEAQYBSABEgLhRvD_BwE"},{"insert":"\n\nBy the way, I 100% appreciate recommendations for more cost-effective cameras or recorders. \n\nTo keep it short; the purpose of the grant is to help me purchase equipment so I can publish better quality educational material and become less reliant on others to do it for me! I think this is useful marketing to help get more developers in the space (towards >1m developers in 2020). \n\np.s.
