Maybe not too uphill -- just consider the number of educators on this list.
I feel there's definitely a place, perhaps a strong one, for Rev in
But it will take some research and development before Rev is able to
precisely nail the value proposition for the broader education market as
it's been doing for developers.
That's really my only point here: it may well be worthwhile doing the long
research process needed to develop and market effectively for educators, but
not if it means losing sight of the past and current focus on professional
quality development which has been the product's award-winning strength thus
far (not to mention the source of most of the revenue and reputation that
would make such exploration into other markets possible).
