Get the most out of Obsidian

I'm Filipe Donadio, software engineer and YouTuber. I make videos about note-taking and knowledge management apps like Obsidian, Notion, and Logseq.

I send occasional email updates with tutorials, links to articles, and content that I recently enjoyed. I'd love for you to join.

If you want to see a few samples, you can see two recent ones here and here.

    What I like about the newsletter is that I feel like it's an email from a distant friend who is sharing the things he has recently discovered. I am passionate about discovering new things and this is always the place where I find that.
