Getting to Know webCoRE [Video Series]

I've been working on a video series going over webCoRE for people getting started or who are looking for piston ideas. I have below all of the videos currently in the series and the whole playlist can be found here:

If there are any suggestions on things to cover or suggestions on how to make the videos more interesting / helpful please let me know!

Bravo, and THANKS for putting that series together! I was just poking around in WebCoRE this morning, whereupon I realized I virtually never dabble with it, having only a single active Piston running. The elapsed time between visits means I forget whatever chops I had picked up previously, so these videos will be truly helpful!

Thanks for the suggestions! I have not covered any of those yet.

Could you provide a little more context around "advanced speak phrases"?

I would, except on 2nd thought, I believe that's far too niche a topic (esp. since the "Echo Speaks" app already has a purpose built "Phrase Builder" in place).

I've watched all your videos, and will keep my thinking cap on for additional topics!
