Event Information

You've probably heard of Roam Research. Maybe you've watched some YouTube videos or Nat's course. But you've never really given it a proper shot - it feels quite intimidating, and the learning curve's quite steep.

If that sounds like you, then you'll love Roam with Ali Abdaal. I'll teach you the ropes of Roam in just 2 hours, live over Zoom (and yes, it'll be recorded if you can't make the times).

Saturday - 14:00 - 15:30 GMT - We'll spend an hour going over the very basics so you'll know how to get started from the blank screen that Roam gives you, followed by 30 minutes of open Q&A.

Sunday - 17:00 - 18:30 GMT - We'll build on the basics and I'll show you my own real-world use-cases of Roam. Again, followed by 30 minutes of open Q&A.

I'll be honest - my Roam setup isn't particularly fancy. I don't use any custom CSS, or have a particularly aesthetic setup. But it gets the job done. I've fallen prey to productivity porn in the past, and I've made a point to focus my use of Roam (and other apps like Notion) on the 20% of features that drive 80% of my results.

What you'll learn in 2 hours:

  1. Daily journaling with Morning Pages

  2. Anywhere Todo Lists

  3. The Easiest Weekly Review you'll actually do

  4. The 1-Question Nightly Journal - Homework for Life

  5. The Zero-Friction Personal CRM

  6. The Magical Insight Logging Framework (ft. Readwise and Instapaper)

And if there's time, we'll touch on more advanced stuff like Second Brain Note-Taking, the basics of the Zettelkasten Method and my own, patent-pending Nibble Framework for processing notes.

This is a 100% charity event

100% of the revenue from ticket sales will be donated to the Against Malaria Foundation.

BONUS - $100 off the Roam Believer Plan

Because Conor (founder of Roam) is a legend, he's offering anyone who completes the course a $100 discount off the Roam 5-year Believer Plan. That means that if you're serious about using Roam, you pay $100 for this course (which is all donated to the Against Malaria Foundation) AND you get $100 off your Roam 5y subscription (that makes the price $6.67 per month).

The Team - Ali Abdaal x Marc Koenig

The course is a collaboration between me (Ali Abdaal) and my friend Marc Koenig. I'm a Roam minimalist with pretty Spartan use-cases. Marc's a Roam pro.
