ViniciusDallacqua 🌐@webtwitr@Vintharas Now that I've said it, we gotta make your VIM book an audiobook! That would be quite an experience for the listeners 😁07:17 AM - 01 Aug 2019
Flash-forward and TaDa!! I've started making Boost Your Coding Fu into an auditory experience. Here is a sample!
And here is the complete playlist with about 50 minutes of soothing VSCode and Vim content :D
Let me know what you think! Hope you like it! :D

it's amazing that you "Just do it!" 🚀
I listen a lot of audiobooks, like every day, and I am somewhat picky about narrators. I find it often difficult to follow when the narrator is not a professional.
On the other hand, I love books where the author himself is narrating!
Maybe you could have some training to get the timing and pausing right, I honestly don't know how many authors become so good at narrating their own books.
I know for sure, though, that this is a difficult skill to obtain that needs serious training.
Keep us updated! 👊🏾
Thank you!!! :D I really try to make a habit of just doing things, I find it exhilarating to push through the inertia, the fear, the self doubt and just Boom! :D
Thank you for feedback and taking the time to comment! I think that through the process of narrating and listening to myself I'm learning a lot. I think that the secret sauce is to narrate like if you were talking to a person and not reading. :D I find that when I'm listening to own narration, the parts that I enjoy the most are when I get off the book and I'm actually explaining something (a diagram, drawing or some such) off script.
Exactly! One thing I learned from a speaking class, is how much more powerful your speaking becomes if you imagine visually, when you speak. Having it in front of you in form of a diagram/drawing is basically a similar concept.
With some training, you'll get at your peak performance soon, I'm sure
