Ever since the hour we first launched our beta version, each new day brings us heaps of exciting user experiences from our viewers telling us how Livecoding.tv was helping people around the world, learn to code products. We feel both overwhelmed and responsible to ensure this sharing of knowledge continues to prosper and keep up with the rising level of expectations.
To make sure our viewers get the most out of Livecoding.tv, here are a handful of useful tips for you. It doesn’t really matter if you are new to Livecoding.tv or have been with us since day one. These tips are your free tickets to get the most either way. Here you go:
1. Make your presence felt:
Your existence matters only when you make yourself heard. So each time you are there, seeing a programmer working on Python or creating a 2D Physics game in live stream, don’t just hide there in the dark corner. It won’t help anyone. Instead reach out to the streamers in chat, ask questions, interact, share your own development experience with them, give suggestions related to the product they are developing and in short say whatever you feel like. But write something in the chat too.
2. Follow the guy:
If you are there helping yourself get a taste of real life product development, do Follow the streamer. And following doesn’t necessarily mean clicking that navy blue button under the streamer’s screen. It means to walk behind your streamer’s footsteps. To follow his process, understand the little things he is doing, knock on his door where you fail to understand his moves, and most importantly regularly attend his sessions.
3. Utilize Notifications:
On your dashboard @Livecoding.tv, there’s a hidden treasure for you waiting to be discovered, called ‘Notifications’, use it efficiently. First, mark your favorite streamers as well as languages you are interested in to receive email alerts of their streaming sessions beforehand, and then be there on time for watching these streams to make sure you don’t miss a ‘class’ your streamer creates. On top of that, you can also set reminders for streams you are more interested in using streaming schedule.
4. Visit Video Library:
5. Browse Streaming Schedule & Request a Stream you are Missing:
The schedule is the best starting point to check out upcoming streams by day. You can see the time at which the streams will appear in your local time zone. You don’t always have to watch only the streams of what the streamers are currently showing. You can add products you would like to see built or certain modules and topics you don’t understand on the streaming schedule page and ask a streamer you like to stream something about it. The more viewers you motivate to vote for the topic, the more likely a streamer will pick it up.
