If you’re in the region, send your staff to this event.
"Unwrapping" as we call him :D, documents the Tumblr toolset better than anybody. He uses plain language and helpful visuals. He leverages his own technical literacy without requiring it of you, his reader/student.
So much Tumblr stuff is undocumented (yes, it is simple, yes, it is delightful and beautiful, and yes, most people can just start blogging without reading any documentation.) But if you’re a brand looking to get started, and you need your staff of varying levels of social platform literacy to hit the ground running, this is such a no-brainer. Save your organization weeks of unfocused meetings, and just book this. You’ll be like,
“I remember when we took a class from unwrapping in a conference room, before he sold out stadiums. Tickets were only $50.”
