Let's Pair during a Live Coding Session!

I started live streaming a couple of months ago.

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.

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!







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:

  • 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.

Want to pair? Fill out the pairing form.

Looking forward to potentially pairing with you! 🍐
