Live Coding Experiment

Hey.

Last week I've started doing recording videos of me, coding, live with screen sharing  and background context on everything I do. I did this to increase transparency of FOSS development as well as to increase awareness of the Checkbox project that I participate in.


I think while the actual videos are a bit too long for casual watching the experiment itself is interesting and worth pursuing.

I'm recording about 3-4 videos a day. I'll try to focus on making the content more interesting for both casual viewers that bail out after a minute or two and my hardcore colleagues that sometimes watch those to get up-to-speed about new feature development.

In any case, it is out there, in the open. If you want to talk to us, join #checkbox on freenode. Ping me on Google+. Browse the code. Improve translations or get involved in any other way you want.

Lastly, for a bit of self promotion, have a look at the latest video
