What tool do you use to write an ebook?

I’m partial to writing in Markdown using iA Writer. It’s a super low friction way to write, which I enjoy.

iA Writer can do a passable export to pdf I think. For Serverless Handbook, I used www.remarq.io/ to export to the various formats. Did great

I’ve also heard asciidoc as a popular suggestion when markdown isn’t enough anymore. Haven’t tried it myself

is SV650 good for a first bike for 200-250 pounds 6' me?

Dude the SV650 is literally the joke on r/motorcycles as “The only thing we can all agree on is SV650 beginner bike”

btw my first bike was a 900cc Street Twin and that’s been great. Just don’t be an idiot about it and you’ll be fine

Hi Swizec! I see you teach Javascript...

For the machien learning part I would recommend python. For the part that's user facing, especially in the browser, I would recommend javascript.

Are there people in WIP that give IRL classes or courses, workshops & events?

What does "manage your attendees" mean to you? I'm not sure what you're asking

Maker from USA

ah ok, youll never see me with it :)

Is there any way to open US bank for non-US residents?

I did it with both Wells Fargo and Chase. Moved to Chase because it has better online banking (didn't need physical presence to make a wire transfer, for example)

Interesting, good to know. Revolut bank plans to open in the US in the next few months and I plan to move everything to them then.

Agree. Revolut looks interesting. I hope it will be available in Japan soon!

Yes. If you can walk into a branch with your passport, any of them will let you open a bank account. I had one before I even had a social security number.

Just FYI: I was successful in doing this with Wells Fargo, but had problems with Chase. Some banks will hold 10-30% of your money for tax purposes prior to you having a SSN I believe.

Thank you!
I will try it when I visit US. However, I don't have a plan to go to US in this and next year. I'm looking for an online banking solution. Do you have any idea about it? :D

Charles Schwab let’s you open a US bank online but you would have to provide proof of residence + social security number. Not sure of others if you are non-resident.

Yeah, Charles Schwab would be the ideal choice if i were eligible to open my account. Their service is best for digital nomads.
