Let's Pair during a Live Coding Session!
I started live streaming a couple of months ago.
I've Started to Live Code on Twitch for DEV
My goal was/is to stream actual stuff I'm working on at DEV. So far it's been fun. But you know what's more fun? Doing it with other people.
Would anyone be interested in working on a frontend issue for @ThePracticalDev during a live coding session pairing with me on https://t.co/DVCVJ0vs7b? I know it might sound a little intimidating, but like @swyx says, learn in public. #DEVCommunity #LearnInPublic #YOLO pic.twitter.com/kGYo5EJBj7— Nick Taylor (he/him) (@nickytonline) July 13, 2020
So far I've had a bunch of people sign up for the task. Here's a few takers. While you're at it, give them a follow on DEV and Twitter!
Yea!!— Sophia Li (@sophia_wyl) July 13, 2020
I'm interested, however I'm not familiar with Preact— TJ_Jackson (@Code_Kuroi) July 13, 2020
No worries if you don't know Preact. Hopefully I can explain things well enough that you do once we're done. 😅 pic.twitter.com/obbJxei8y8— Nick Taylor (he/him) (@nickytonline) July 13, 2020
I’m down 🤚— Gift✨ (@lauragift_) July 13, 2020
Sorry I missed this one. Would love to have worked with a community on an issue. Maybe next time.— Chuck Smith 💻 🇺🇦 (@EclecticCoding) July 13, 2020
I'll put you down Chuck. I have 4 other people at the moment, but would love if you'd participate.— Nick Taylor (he/him) (@nickytonline) July 13, 2020
I'm interested. ✋— 🇺🇦 ✦ Eliot Sanford ✧ 🇺🇦 (@techieEliot) July 13, 2020
For the time being I plan to work on frontend issues only, but as things move along, I see this naturally progressing to any issue in the DEV repository.
If you are interested in participating. Send me a DM on DEV or Twitter. If you're not following me on DEV, you can still send me a message as my DMs are open.
Things to do to get you prepared for a live coding pairing session:
- Visual Studio Code installed with the Live Share extension pack. This will allow us to work collaboratively in the editor. What's Live Share you ask? @lostintangent has a great series on it 😎
In Pursuit of Enjoyable Developer Collaboration
DEV installed locally. Check out docs.dev.to to get up and running. If you have issues getting things installed, let me know and we can get it sorted for you.
A decent Internet connection.
Our first pairing session will be Wednesday, July 15th at 3 PM ET/7 PM UTC.
Alright, we have our first Live Coding Pairing session set up for this Wednesday with @sophia_wyl at 3pm Eastern time. Come join us on Twitch at https://t.co/XhHtvMciLk #DEVCommunity #LiveCoding #LearnInPublic https://t.co/cEXDHs46kn— Nick Taylor (he/him) (@nickytonline) July 13, 2020
