Behind The Scenes of Learn Ulysses

We’re on the home stretch. Learn Ulysses launches in one week from today.

Everything major for the new course is done, but there are quite a few little things and final details left to wrap up. There always is.

With that in mind, I thought it’d be fun to record this screencast video showing how I have my Ulysses set up and how I use it on a day-to-day basis.
