1. 1.0 - introduction to pack five: everybody Welcome back to a new pack. If you haven't caught up with the latest Pat were on pack five now the previous packed for was all about Cryptocurrency and Blockchain. So if you're interested at all about Bitcoin and earning crypto currency online than definitely check out that packers. So there was some really good you Earl spent quite a bit of time doing some research myself because I'm also trying to get into crypto for 2017 to go check that previous back out about with another pack. I'm going all over the board about four great areas for for you to share today. I want to lead with some awesome e residency companies because I'm trying to get over to Estonia in 2017 to set up my own little business, mainly about brand advocacy time, starting with some residency Estonian based you RL's websites or services that I think you will use. If you're interested in crypto currency, go go retro with some of these awesome retro gaming websites. I've got some great stuff. There may be some ideas for Christmas present, your favorite geek or nerd in the family. And how about a learning site to get that new dream job in 2017 year old with doing some courses in this month about getting a new job. Where to look, what to do by the end of the year. Want a chill out day Today I wanted to play and learn some new skills. Do something productive with your day today, so let's get into this course. 2. 1.1 - that estonian web connection: first link today from the Estonia. Your els is stamp ary it leverage is the Blockchain to ensure existence, integrity and attribution So this is for all of your processes within your businesses, communication channels, data that you may have in your business. They've come up with a way that uses Blockchain to ensure that that that data exists has a certain level of integrity. And you have attribution to that fire that is it owned by use. And we're starting to see now block change being used after track things that happened within your business. So, for instance, maybe you bring out a product first you have a painting that exists for it. You can now put something out there on this Blockchain to prove that exists. That has a certain level of integrity and this attributed to you as a company. Very cool stuff coming out of Estonia. Definitely Check that out. If you're interested in Blockchain, what's whether this was really nice to call Remedios Swift and Seper deposit straight from digital currency? This has been a big area for me that have been concerned about how do I transfer? How do I change my Cryptocurrency into something that's really world tangible to me that I can spend and buy food and things where deposits straight from digital currency, two bank accounts or load any debit card using 40 plus crypto currencies. So if you've been thinking about getting a credit card or debit called or a way of transferring what you have already having some kind of Bitcoin wallet and do go check out Remedios, there's lots of services like this that are popping up. Now they're realizing that there's an underground culture of this, especially Bitcoin. Now, recently going up to around $740 Bitcoin has started to bounce back. People are starting to take it seriously. Banks. 90% of banks, like I said in one of my previous courses that were asked, are looking at using Blockchain technology within their banking sector. Funding beam dot com Discover. Invest in on trade in growth companies might be my entry point in 2017 to trading. I know absolutely nothing about trading, but what I do like about the fund a beam site is that they have support for the residency card so I can authenticate using that and I feel a little bit mawr stable, bit more protected by looking at trading in this manner that I'm not just getting into the Wild West off traders and trading. It seems to be that they've really made the you I incredibly nice. And for a first timer like May, I can sort of dip my feet in the water and find out what it's all about. Definitely interested in trading in crypto currency next year. If I'm gonna be mining lots of different cryptocurrencies fleet that I Oh, I mentioned it in the beginning also had a previous course for this yesterday. I think it was in my Advent calendar, very similar to slacken. We say it's a bit of a clone off slack, probably, but I think it has subtle differences. The one big difference with me is one euro per month per user, which is unprecedented price compared to, I think, six or $7 per user on slack Slack. We've got the first mover advantage, of course, but I'm really interested to see what will happen with Fleet in the next couple of years. I could definitely see an acquisition coming their way 3. 1.2 - everywhere i look, retro gaming: gaming Christmas is coming up. We have those three or four days over Christmas where we could just like veg out because we've had too much food. Or at least I do. Recall box dot com is a complete set up is a SD card image. You download the SD card image, you copy the files onto an SD card. You put that into a raspberry pie. I would suggest the rest. Reply three, although to I think we'll work. This is for people who are looking to get gaming retro gaming up in a hurry and download rums. Make sure you have the games yourself from the Web on. Just like all of those retro cool games like Super Mario Brothers and things like that, Zelda may be very easy to use. You don't have to be super techie. You have one program that you need to download to be able to bird or copy those files onto the SD card. Another one you could use it especially forgot. Mac is this beautifully crafted piece of software called Open E. M. U two, or it's a super polished console and arcade video game emulator for all right sex. If you're looking for something that has a really nice interface. Get all the cover are easy to search. Easy to set up the controllers. You want to run it on your desktop and not on to resume pie open E M u d or is a great download for the Mac. Okay. Okay. So you want to know where their rooms are, right? Well, if you go on to BitTorrent orbit, lord search dot com, maybe do a search for Rahm's. Then you will find ALS, the rooms that you need for all of these different consoles. But please, only game already. Okay? Because there is copyright infringement. Obviously, if you're downloading these rooms, I have not told you download these room. I just know they exist out there on the Internet. You can also get copies of the original hardware controller. So if you see here on the left, on the side is an image of that Nintendo controller. Instead of using a keyboard and mouse, you can actually buy a USB controller clone off a USB controller like the Nintendo controller, and you just link that up to your raspberry pi, especially if you have the recipe pie three because he has on board Bluetooth. You can add a Bluetooth controller and actually sit from your sofa and play Super Mario brothers on your raspberry pi three for 30 quid, 35 quid on the cost of an SD card and all the little bits to go along with setting up your raspberry pi. You could even give this a gift at Christmas to your very because of or step brother, sister, whoever is a gamer in your family. 4. 1.3 - learn a new skill in 2017: coding. You want to learn some new skills for 2017 already? P. L D I t. Is code in the cloud learned how to code from this wonderful sight they have practical programming C c plus plus go Java node Js PHP python python three. Ruby rusts with you've been looking to learn any of these new programming languages. This is the site for you to get started in 2017 because you could do all the learning from the website. You can even learn Web stuff. So es six. Coffee script Job script. Roy html CSS Js Classic stuff a pl fourth and Q Basic and kind of weird, esoteric stuff like blue brain F emoticon Low Code on on Lombardia Definitely learned how to do the lull code. I think you'll enjoy that very much, especially over Christmas, when you've had a couple of drinks 5. 1.4 - feeling inspired to create?: all right, so you won't have a bit of a play. All that other stuff is overwhelming and uses up your brain cycles are rig army. Dot designed for the Mac is a fantastic tool for design prototyping Your next How many people out there? I thought I would love to make an apple, which might app did. This is a combination of Airbnb vs Uber vs Firefox might have this idea of this combination at Well, now you can design it and prototype in this program all the walk throughs, how you expect the menus to look that have going to that programmer all that design house and then charging you 10. 20 30,012. An app developed That doesn't go anywhere. Why don't you design them, prototype yourself and then go to see somebody in 2017? I'm sure there'll be lots of developers and programmers with open arms in January looking for additional new clients. And if you've got a prototype ready to go, that puts you in a different price bracket altogether. No stress mining. Have you thought about doing crypto currency? Mining of that? It was just a bit too complicated, cause yet to download command line programs. I did, too, until I came across a thing called minor Gates. I negate dot com download this app. You can also run in your browser, but if you've got a super fast PC with a great GPU great graphics card in there, you could be mining just by downloading their software. There is no complicated set up. You just fire and forget it. I would suggest doing a better of research and find out how long you can run your computer for on your GP running full steam. Make sure that you have it called to make sure that you don't leave in a room that suggested a heart when it comes to doing any kind of Bitcoin mining. Beware of the amount of power that your machine is using the amount of heat it's producing . But if you want an easy entry into doing Bitcoin mining, if you want to do any kind of mining with Bitcoin, Ethereum and Cryptocurrencies to check this out, what about playing the free game of the year 2016? It just got voted free game of the year 2016. My favorite new game, Paladins com. If you are up for playing games it Christmas, maybe you have a new gaming PC for Christmas. Do add me up. I am team Humble. Just add me as a friend on Paladins team Humble, and we can play in a five a side team. And maybe we can also talk on the voice server over Christmas. I'd love to play with you on the same team. What about making conversational voice and text interfaces with the new Amazon? Alexa, get a brand advocate dot link four slash Lexuses, a new platform from Amazon to create almost like an artificial intelligence bots for making voice and text interface is based on certain responses back to a client or a friend. You have a lot of fun with their. She could wind a lot of people up with this going Check it out. It's incredible technology display from Amazon. I can't wait to see where this goes in 2017. Maybe you're having a bit of a chilled weekend and you want to redesign something like a website. Or maybe you're doing a PdF for creating an e book. Take a look at the pattern that ninja dot com to make those tiling seamless patterns for your book or your website, or maybe even just a separate project for three D printing. 6. 1.5 - take part in the project!: All right, then. So five step project to go to your project in the bar below. But an awesome project title in the project Works based, Be creative. Include pictures in the steps you talk.

If you don't have longer to nomad dot pictures, click on the save button and you're done 7. 1.6 - the roundup: I'm living these website packs, to be honest, because I get to play and talk about all the stuff that I use on a day to day basis. We get to go all over the map and I do one thing with these packs, which is I'm trying to kill that board. In fact, of the amount of people that have bumped it into over the last 10 years, we've said the Internets, all right, but I can't find anything interesting. These things are interesting, especially if you spend a bit of time to get creative with these tools. Maybe experiment with these tools may be put in some money in those crypto currencies and play with those. Do some mining. Definitely check out that Paladins game. Definitely admit his team humble player to play with. Is there a gap in your digital knowledge that I can help with Maybe want one chat sessions ? I know that skill share have started to roll out only to special instructors. We don't get it yet. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm special enough that they're charging $75 procession.
