Seems like kid will stay at home for more time. Teaching kids at home is really thought and I was trying to find some interesting downloadable worksheets on various topics like Maths, English and general studies but I couldn't find good free options so the last few months of have been working on creating my own worksheets which I will also release. Do let me know if you are interested.

I made plenty of videos on my YouTube channel just focussed on Portfolio for Jira, those videos are structured properly as a course that you can take to learn Advanced Roadmaps. However YouTube is not always great and it is easy to get lost. So you can follow that course here on my site. Here is the link to the course. Apart from the videos you might also find quizzes to validate your learning and some important articles to help you. Enjoy.

I clone some public repositories on my computer and then make changes to it but those changes are important for me so I want to version control them as well.

The idea is to one repository to pull from and another repository to push to, you can do that by adding a separate push repo url.

  1. git remote set-url --push origin https://USERNAME@bitbucket.org/ USERNAME/REPO.git

I hope it helps.

Couple of years back I was introduced to the idea of POSSE. It was basically after reading Dries post. Apart from videos I post pretty much everything on my blog.

This blog has the following types of content.

  • Notes: Short updates, checkins and photos
  • Blogs: Long articles

I of course use heavily on this site taxonomy and views to organise the content. This site is currently managed using Drupal Compose projects and now I have a workflow from local to production and it makes adding new features very easily.

Coming back to the topic - I post my content here and I then syndicate it elsewhere, you can know more about it on this page -> POSSE. I am quite happy with this approach and it definitely feels good to be in control of your content. There are things like videos which you can really upload on your own server. It will consume the bandwidth very quickly and you need to upload videos on YouTube for the traffic and audience.

To after quite a while I did some cycling and now thinking of making health my priority. You can watch me doing cycling and also enjoy the beautiful summer day in UK.

Today I spent some time redesigning the videos page on my website. The page now has a grid of videos and I feel it makes it easier for the visitor to find the videos. This is in continuation to the work I was doing on this site to make the content more organised.

Lot of people ask me this question about mock test when preparing for Jira Administration exam. We as an Atlassian experts or anyone with these certifications are not allowed to share anything beyond what is mentioned on the certification portal.

I however make lot of content around Atlassian tools. I have hundreds of videos and content online that people refer to. I am in a process to organise all that content in a way that can be treated as a learning path or in simple language a course. People land on YouTube videos after searching and that is fine but if someone wants to learn something then there should be a path that he/she can take, starting from getting started to mastering that skill.

When consuming a content a good way to revise key aspects of that content (video or article ) is to take some tests, quiz or flash card. I also ran a vote on twitter asking people to give their suggestion and most of them agreed to having a mock test.

So in the next coming weeks I will be preparing theses structured course which is not a big effort for me because I already have the content, all I need to do is organise it properly on this site.

The course will have the following.

- Videos
- Articles
- Tests
- Flash cards

I hope it will help first of all me to go back to some of the content that I made in the past. I usually end up searching on this site on my local notes. Second it will also help people looking to start their learning with absolutely no background.

For instance if you want to learn Jira and you have no priori knowledge, then how do you start? Do you want to learn Portfolio for Jira to managed your projects but you are not sure where to begin? Or may be you want to learn automation in Jira using ScriptRunner but you have no programming experience in Groovy?

I already have hundreds of videos on these topics on my YouTube channel and lot of blogs on this site but apart from Drupal's wonderful aspect of organising content using taxonomy I will be creating guided structured learning path courses.

Stay tuned. Subscribe to me newsletter below to get updates when my courses are in good shape. I will let you know ;)

Last year I started using Drupal Composer project to manage my sites and quite enjoyed it. I made my development to production workflow and also shared the whole process in a video.

I now have development, staging and production environment. Code goes from development > staging > production. Content is usually latest of production of course and from time to time I refresh my local with content from live.

I am planning to write series of blog post to explain the whole process.
