Let's start by saying: God do I love programming and hate work!

My dream job would be a place where I get to write quality code for something that's actually useful and makes sense to people (or a group of people) without all the usual job bullshit; all the politics, fucking useless hours of meetings, the pretentious ass holes, and the useless mindless product owners with good pay to live comfortably and some organization (not being a complete disaster). It's only a dream though...

    Try live coding. I have started that a few months ago and I LOVE IT. I can work on wathever I like, people are really kind, I can express my creativity without barrier.

    The downside is of course : it's absolutely not profitable (yet?)

    @react-guy come again? More details please. Do you literally you code live? No preparations? How do you gather an audience? That seems really cool.

    Live coding?

    I’m interested in how this works too. I mean...isn’t coding a lot of sitting and thinking quietly? A bit like live bookreading, but with sporadic bouts of typing?

    @rantsauce basically you pick a small project, develop it on twitch and explain what you do and why.

    I started ~4 months ago and I have now ~20 viewers, with several regulars.

    I try to code things that are a bit visual, like front end designs or CSS stuff.

    I spend half time coding, half time discussing whatever the viewers are talking about in the chat.

    Not going to give my channel here because I don't want this account to be officially associated with my official online presence. I want to rant without fearing a potential boss noticing 😁

    My advice : look at twitch in the science and technology category. You will have a good sample of what live coding is.
