re: Why is streaming while you're developing not so popular? VIEW POST


Thanks for the link!

Yeah, I know there are some people.

Handmade Hero builds a game and in streaming games, in general, are popular.

I was thinking more about web development and similar things.


on the other hand it's kinda like pair-programming or mob-programming without the productivity loss.

yeah, I like the term mob-programming.

I think you have a point. Time is the biggest thing here!

But then again it's part of time management and if you really want it :)


My wild guess (!) is..

  • there aren't that many people proficient enough in web-development to have the guts for live-coding and talking while coding, AND to have the time doing it on a regular basis.

  • web-dev isn't that exciting per se. game-dev and similar fields are "cool" in a way, so the audience isn't just other game-devs, but all kinds of other devs. But I really can't imagine a web-dev or AI-Engineer casually being excited about web-dev and watching others doing it.
