Livecoding.tv is launching today as part of the Summer 2015 batch of Y Combinator.
Livecoding.tv is a livestreaming platform where you can watch people code products live. It’s like Twitch for coding.
“The way Livecoding works is pretty simple. Developers stream live video of themselves coding, and users watching can ask questions or give feedback.
Since launching a beta in February, Livecoding has seen 40,000 people sign up across 162 countries. Users have streamed in a variety of spoken languages, including Portuguese, Russian, and German, and coding languages, including C#, Python, and PHP.
Anyone who wants to stream about coding can do so, from expert coders to 11-year-old kids building their first Java game.”
You can visit the site any time of day or night to learn from developers who are building games, mobile apps and websites. Streamers come to share the projects they are working on, get feedback or help from viewers, and share their knowledge.
Livecoding.tv was founded by Jamie Green and Michael J. Garbade. What they’ve built is a new type of educational platform.“Live education is the key to the future,” Green told TechCrunch. “Verticals like design could be very interesting to engage with this model.”
