Announcing the Markprompt + Contenda integration: Confbrew

We love finding new and creative ways to use Contenda's technology to help the broader developer community. This partnership with Markprompt was super exciting and very fun to build. Read on to find out how to use Confbrew!

How often do you attend an inspiring conference, but then have questions about the talks afterwards? Maybe you had to step out during a session for a call, or technical issues cut out the speaker’s mic… Either way, you might have some questions about what you missed out on.

Contenda transforms videos into written content to help you create the ultimate content knowledge base. Markprompt ingests that data to create powerful Q&A bots so that you can find the knowledge you need, when you need it. With our powers combined: We created Confbrew, a Q&A system for conference sessions!

How it works

Markprompt is a powerful and easy tool for creating Q&A systems. Their API endpoints that allow you to train your content and create a prompt to ask questions to it. With their web dashboard, you can set up syncing with a GitHub repo, train files, manage access keys, and visualize stats on how users query your content.

Contenda makes it incredibly easy for anyone to transform video into effective written content. You can plug in a YouTube video or playlist, and receive a blog or tutorial.

With the two services, Markprompt can ingest all of that Contenda-generated written knowledge in an automatic and systematic way. Together, you get a smart, accurate Q&A platform from any set of videos you put through our integration! And that’s how Confbrew was born.

“We’re stoked to collaborate with Contenda! By meshing Markprompt’s smart Q&A system with Contenda’s slick video-to-text conversion, we’re transforming conference content into an exciting, knowledge-seeking journey. Get ready to have your questions answered and wisdom expanded!”
