Thanks for sharing, will check the links, and your Twitch, out!
Was contemplating starting streaming this year, but it seemed like there isn't an audience for live coding.

Not that you need a bigger audience, but it is one of the datapoints I took into consideration.

But that was just my superficial 30 minute research - is your experience different?

You're welcome! And there is some audience for it. Of course it doesn't have the size of, say, Fortnite streams, but some more well-known streamers do manage to rack up 200-300 simultaneous viewers or more. (Example: twitch.tv/noopkat)

I'd consider it a community at an early stage of development. The return on investment could really vary for everyone.

200-300 is impressive for coding stream for sure, I would not expect game-stream levels, so that makes sense.

Again, thank you for your insight! Hopefully will be able to catch you streaming some time :)

You're so very welcome. I'm glad if you managed to gain some useful knowledge from it. And I hope so too. If only I knew when my schedule next permits!
