    Pros:Β 

    Terrific interface that is easy to use, intuitive, and effective.

    Cons:Β 

    Would like to see more specific topics although I imagine that will come with more teachers.

    Loved my 'learn to code' class on Graam. If I had taken this app development session on my first day of college I might have gone done a very different life path.

    Needs more teachers but expect this issue resolved with scale

    Tested Graam with the founder. The lessons are practical, makes development approachable and above all entertaining. I absolutely endorse this product!

Thanks for hunting my product @juhaszhenderson !! Hello, fellow product hunters! πŸ‘‹ I'm super excited to share my project, Graam. It's really a solution that stemmed out of my own personal frustration when learning new things. πŸ€“ 😭 Problem: 1. It can be pretty hard to find more experienced people to guide you when you're trying to learn something new. Online resources are great but having a mentor can REALLY help at times. 2. If you're a creator/experienced person there isn't really an easy way to start teaching your skills to people in your community & potentially generate extra income. In my own case: People always told me to get a mentor but being an introverted person, I've always struggled with this. For example, when I started teaching myself how to build apps in college, I pretty much learned everything on my own and it was a really frustrating experience. I remember being glued to my laptop during winter break trying to fix this really dumb thing that I spent days on. I couldn't even describe the bug properly on stack overflow. Perhaps, if another, more experienced, developer had just pointed out the fix, I would probably have been less frustrated with the entire process. But ultimately, I didn't give up and learning how to make apps really helped me. Imagine how many people give up in these situations and never end up acquiring skills that could potentially change their lives. I could make a list of all things I ended up giving up on just because I couldn't find the right resources/people to guide me. πŸ’‘ Solution: Build a strong community of creators who can help each other learn new skills 🀝. And a step towards that would be a website that connects creators with everybody else who is interested in learning. Like, Airbnb but for mentors (am I even allowed to say that? πŸ™ƒ) It's really simple. Anybody who has a creative skill to offer can setup a page on Graam by filling in a few details. Once their page is setup, they can share it within their network, or wherever. It's like your own personal website but specifically tailored for teaching. If a prospective student finds this page, they can easily request a private session to learn from you. I also just graduated from college πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ“ and I'm super inspired by all the things that can be done by assembling an amazing community of creators πŸŽ‡. This is also my first proper web app that I've released out into the world & I'm soloing this project (so be gentle because it might break) I'm going to be working on this as long as I possibly can so you can follow me on twitter @vd_thatte for more updates about the project! πŸš€ Feel free to hit me up with questions/feedback! UPDATE: I'm getting some really quality questions here, looks like a lot of them are going to end up on my FAQ page :)

@juhaszhenderson @vd_thatte Congrats on launching πŸš€ cool concept! What channels are you using to attract new users?
Vidy T.MakerPro@vd_thatte Β· writing a lot of code
@abadesi Thank you very much!! PH is on of our main channels so far apart from sharing on personal social networks. I've also begun reaching out to local creators through email. My main focus though is to create an amazing experience for my initial users so that they really like the product enough to tell their friends about it - because clearly, word of mouth is the most effective way to grow & attract users! What other channels do you suggest I explore?

@vd_thatte Yes definitely! I think FB ads would be great, too, you can leverage campaigns to include instagram as well and most millennials and gen z spend their time on those platforms 😊 also be sure to launch on Hacker News and BetaList if you haven't already

@abadesi Thanks!! will definitely consider these outlets πŸ”₯

Well done, @vd_thatte. Interesting take against Udemy and similar education platforms. I like the simple design and focus on the teacher (where as Udemy and others often focus entirely on the content). Which categories are most popular so far?
Vidy T.MakerPro@vd_thatte Β· writing a lot of code
@rrhoover Thanks a ton! Huge fan of your work :) So far, from the feedback I've gotten from talking to people and looking at all the signups - it seems like photography, UI & graphic design and programming could potentially be popular topics. I'm also focusing on teachers because they're super important for this to succeed. Building all the tools they need to get off the ground, and start teaching is #1 priority. And like I mentioned, online platforms like Udemy are great but having a mentor lead you through the process can be really magical at times (speaking from personal experience) and I hope Graam can deliver that!

I’ve taken an app development course on Graam with @vd_thatte. It was awesome, informative, and very personal. I felt like I learned a ton in a really short amount of time!

Very interesting concept. Is the aim for the courses to be taken in person?
Vidy T.MakerPro@vd_thatte Β· writing a lot of code
@mehulpatel Yep! The lessons are meant to be taken in person because that's a really effective way to learn, it also helps build community and a good relationship with your teacher which can be extremely helpful.

@mehulpatel @vd_thatte are you going to enforce this in any way through the site? I guess it won't stop people to try and do remote lessons if the students are ok with that
Vidy T.MakerPro@vd_thatte Β· writing a lot of code
@mehulpatel @razvanilin Nope not enforcing, it's up to the users!
