Conrad Wadowski, co-founder of Fedora, tells the story of Bitfountain, one of the early successes on the Fedora platform. Bitfountain, which offers instructional courses on programming, started off as a side project but now has over 100,000 people on its mailing list and generated revenues over $2 million.

      Thanks for submitting this Dylan - you beat me to it! Bitfountain is definitely a huge inspiration for us. If anyone has any questions about their story to 100k users, feel free to post comments here or on the blog.

      Side note: We actually go in depth into their story in a course that closes out tonight here: milliondollarinstructor.com

    @conradwa would love to hear a bit more about how the AMA on reddit with their student. Who set it up and how successful was this?

      I set it up. It was semi successful. It's tough on reddit because people are very skeptical. I think it had a degree of success because we discussed the lifestyle of iOS development instead of doing a hard pitch for our product.

    What were their promotion strategies for the course, or is that behind the pay course?

      Right now our current strategy centers mostly on Email marketing. We also make use of Affiliates which help promote our courses to their users.
      We're not too fancy right now. For example we haven't explored paid ads though some of our affiliates do paid ads.
