Resources | Modules Unraveled
I've had a number of people ask what software, hosting etc. I use and recommend. So, I thought I'd put together a page with all of the recourses I use (or have used) and can recommend from personal experience. I’ll add to it as my experience grows, and eventually post videos showing how I use some of them.

Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.
- BuildaModule.com - Chis Shattuck is a fantastic guy, and has tons of great videos teaching everything from PHP programming basics to Drupal theming and development, as well as version control tutorials. I actually learned everything I know about Git and Drush from Build a Module
- GoDaddy - Almost all of my domains are registered with GoDaddy. They're cheap for domains, but I don't recommend hosting sites with them.
- BlackMesh - This site is now hosted on BlackMesh. They have amazing customer and technical support. If you'd rather not deal with server management and maintenance, I can personally attest to their expertise and efficiency.
- Platform.sh - Platform.sh is a hosting service brought to you by the Commerce Guys. They've been a part of the Drupal community for years, and are most notable for their Drupal Commerce suite of modules. The platform is unique in that it provides an entire development cluster per Git branch! So you can work on your feature and never conflict with other developers work. When it's ready, you simply perform a merge, and everyone's up to date.
- Wistia The videos on this site are hosted on Wistia. They provide amazing player customization and analytics. There's a free tier, so upload your next video to Wistia and experience the awesome!
- Screenflow - In my opinion, this is the best screencasting software anywhere. But, it's Mac only.
- Camtasia Studio - I haven't used Camtasia, but from what I hear, it's the go-to software for Windows.
- Zoom H4n - The H4n is highly portable, has a built-in high quality mic, and you can plug in any standard mic with an xlr or 1/4 inch cable. You can record to an SD card, or straight into your computer via USB.
- Screenflow - I used to use software specifically built to record an external mic and computer audio simultaneously, but ScreenFlow has that functionality as well, so since I already have it installed, I use it for audio only podcasts as well?
- LegalZoom - When I needed to register as an LLC, I did it through LegalZoom. It was easy and cheap.
