Makeitopen.com is an open-sourced tutorial site that follows the process of building the official F8 2016 conference app, which itself was also open-sourced.
I was responsible for this entire project - I planned the tutorial structure, I worked alongside the app's developer to interview and consult with him for the tutorial content, and I designed and created the tutorial website.

The app itself was built by a Facebook engineer, using a combination of React Native, Parse, Redux, Flow, Jest, Relay, and GraphQL. I was familiar with only Flow before writing the tutorials, so I had to learn the basics of all the rest while I was doing it, essentially the tutorials are how I taught myself (as a complete beginner) to understand the core parts of each of those technologies.

A few months after launch, I ran a survey of people who had completed the tutorials, and found they had increased adoption for all featured projects.
