“Our team has been working for almost 5 years to improve knowledge and skill exchanges within communities. We’ve on-boarded over 3,000 users and had visitors from all around the world.
We started off in 2013 as SkillSesh.com, a peer-to-peer market for learning skills. Over time we gathered feedback from our users and slowly evolved the platform into the Helpwith.co you see today.
While we wish we could dedicate the time necessary to continue supporting our users and building new features, our team has decided to pursue other projects for an indefinite period of time.
At midnight PST we will be spinning down our servers and will replace the HelpWith application with a temporary page and ultimately a blog. We’ll be writing about our experience building the platform, what we learned, what mistakes we made, and what we’re doing next. All of your information will be untouched and you’ll have the opportunity to use your profile again when we revisit this project in the future.

It’s been a hell of a ride.”
