What would you like to see in a new user documentation and in a future university?

Hey everybody :wave:

In parallel to working on the product features, the team is currently thinking on how to help you build with Weweb thanks to a better documentation and a brand new university.

Our thinking was this one:

  • The university should help people understand visual programming concepts (kind of like Webflow’s university, but for web apps) and how to manage a nocode project with a client.
  • The docs should help you while building in Weweb, listing all the product capabilities/APIs.

My question to the community is: What would you like to see in the university and docs? Also, how would you like to navigate/use them?

This isn’t a direct answer to your question, but I figure this tidbit might be helpful: Technically has been an invaluable resource to helping me understand fundamental web app concepts that have turned into mental models for building with WeWeb.

I think what is key is make it visual, specifically in video format. I came from webflow and didn’t know how to code, but I know a thing or two about no-code backend. I always learn things by exploring and what helped me was by trying to do things and find out the way to do it, such as the cart function. There I learnt about variables, datatypes, inserting objects and manipulating objects, request and posting data to backend. Then I learnt about all the no-code tools in the logic. After I get the grip on weweb and can build most of the things I want to build, I found out the performance wasn’t good enough for my case(which I reported) knew I had to wait and I trust on weweb. But then I went to learn to code with js and react, and found it so cumbersome. I think coding is hilarious when compared to weweb. I think anyone can build atleast 10 times faster with weweb, as for me a novice coder a 100 times faster. One of the annoying things is docs, I think videos are much much easier to understand. That is why I think you guys should prioritize on video format, short videos, maybe all the basic things first, then do a practical ones like for example a shopping cart.

Another input I can give is, I think webflow university taught me html and css, maybe weweb university can teach me javascript, and also a little bit about authentication and backend, since most people probably handling backend for the first time.
