I have always said that when I am not coding that I am probably coding, and 5 years ago when I joined Xamarin I tried testing out live coding. I tried a few different services and formats and never really felt comfortable with the technology at the time. One thing that I did enjoy was getting instant feedback from viewers, answering questions, and showing the issues that I would run into and how I went about fixing them. This is very different then a fully recorded and edited video that you often see from me and is actually really different then a presentation, as it is real life development.
Last year I participated in a charity event where I used Twitch to live stream myself playing video games for 24 hours, and I fell in love with the format. After taking a year off from live streaming and moving into a new apartment with more “stream friendly” space, I decided to give it another go and re-launch my Twitch channel
! It is a blend of coding, code interviews, and of course some video games too (it is Twitch after all)!
