Brugbart is an online learning resource with its primary focus on multimedia technologies. The site started out with just a Danish version as a hobby project. But today Brugbart is run as a Internet based company.
Brugbart aims to build a solid Tutorial site that can be used by anyone with internet access. While not relevant for the sites function, some will also be happy to know, that the site is founded on christian grounds.
Who's behind all this?
The Content of Brugbart is maintained by the users and admins. It's up to each user how much, and what information they want to be available about them on Brugbart. Some users only contribute anonymously, by commenting, etc.
Jacob Kristensen is the founder and current owner of Brugbart.
Correctness of Information
Our content is generally very correct, but even if you should happen to find errors, then don't hesitate to point them out in the comment section. Admins can monitor almost all activity on the site from the admin section, and will be able to update the content very quickly.
Note. We will generally delete comments that are considered irrelevant once the main content has been updated.
You can post your questions by mail.
Q: I'm using Internet Explorer 7 (or earlier) and the site is a mess, is there a solution?
A: Brugbart is best viewed in IE8+, Firefox, or safari. Windows 9x users can switch to Opera 9. Note that i won't be able to tell you if future versions of opera will run on windows 9x.
Q: Why doesn't Brugbart work on x platform?
A: We go very far to apply techniques which will allow the site to gracefully degrade for older platforms and browsers. If it simply doesn't work, maybe its time to update?
Q: So why didn't you use x fix or hack?
A: Because its best that users upgrade their Browser, or get their system administrator to do it for them. You are still welcome to apply your own fixes, that can be done by Using custom StyleSheets with your browser.
Q: Can you help me with this problem?
A: We provide limited support for churches, certain non-profit organizations, and relief organizations.
Q: Can i/we hire Brugbart?
A: The easiest answer would be a simple No. Brugbart is currently only working on Projects of interest, but a lot of stuff could be said to fit in the interest category.
Q: What dose Brugbart mean?
A: Brugbart is a danish word, and can be translated into "usable".

We also allow you to make an unlimited number of printed and or digital copies, as long as these are used for educational purposes.

You are allowed to use example scripts/code in your own projects, commercial as well as free, without referring to Brugbart in any way. But only given that the material from Brugbart has either been significantly changed and/or extended from the original samples.
For example, you are the developer of a CMS solution, and included a WYSIWYG tool developed by Brugbart. The script only makes up a smaller function in your CMS, so you don't need to refer to Brugbart.
Brugbart is currently funded with online ads, and just barely covers its own hosting expenses. The hope is to eventually become ad-free, which is rarely seen among Tutorial sites.
The money earned will be used to pay for staff, better hardware, and in the future, likely a faster Internet connection for the server.
We have a very strict Ad policy, unlike many of our competitors. This is both to limit accidental clicks on ads from advertisers, and to avoid that our content gets bloated with ads.
We are also looking into other options, and are always looking to expand and improve the site.
This area is still new for Brugbart, and certainly something we should consider. Should it show to be a viable alternative to ads, we might chose to remove ads all together.
