Hi Nicolas,

I remember viewing the datawizard tutorial which you created. It's quite 

My plan right now is to finish up the revisions of the traditional 
documentation, that should be done within the next 2-3 months. If there's 
some general desire for video tutorials I can start working on them then.

Would you be interested in creating more video tutorials yourself?
