Reddit Coding Experiment, Session 2 Notes

Demo

This is what we built. Here is the github commit. It’s the same thing as last time except the todo items are sorted alphabetically by a bubble sort that we wrote.

Recording

This is a recording of the stream.

Pilot Session Recording

We had the first stream last night. As planned, we went over an introduction to React building a simple todo widget. Below is a recording of the stream.

Thoughts

I think it went pretty well. I wasn’t sure what to expect or how far we would get but almost everyone stayed the entire time and we had some Q&A at the end. I want to make sure to promote more questions going forward. Some people felt that asking a question would derail the flow. That isn’t the case. Questions are literally the point of this entire experiment. I believe that having someone to ask questions to and argue with was the most valuable tool I was lucky enough to have and it’s definitely the tool that I’m trying to provide for people. There are thousands of videos online that can teach you to set up projects and learn new tools but there isn’t a lot of interactive material.

Reddit Coding Experiment

This post will be the raw notes for the initial setup of this reddit coding experiment. For some background, here is the original post that I made on Reddit.

I’ve been a dev at Amazon for ~6 years now and I’d like to start paying it forward a bit. I’m trying to reach people that are more or less in the position I was in about 10 years ago — playing way too much video games, not having a clue about where I’d be in the future, and never having been exposed to programming.

I recently stumbled upon some good advice that boils down to helping people who want to be where you are. Would there be any interest here (or perhaps, somewhere else) in learning to code via something like Twitch/YouTube live? My current thought is to do something around front end development (React in particular). For me, I needed to be able to speak and argue with people when learning so I’d like to try and provide that for others and doing this via stream seems like it would be the most accessible to people (and the recordings could help more people as well).
