Postmortem on a LiveEDU Live Stream Project (Part 1)

The past couple of months I've been live coding a project at [LiveEDU]( As I get ready to wrap up the project and start some new endeavors I'm taking a moment to think about the LiveEDU service itself and what I did well or could have done better.


@Austen Been there once. The amount of literal crap I saw astounded me. I doubt there’s a restaurant that could make me even like the city.

@ericlbarnes there’s an old diner near my house and I think about turning it into a coworking diner all the time. Basically a normal diner but you could buy a table to work at maybe a conference room and when you buy in you get menu access for free. It would also just be a diner too.

Over the years I’ve gone from child to adult to parent and one constant remains true: Kevin’s parents in Home Alone 2 totally wrong for punishing him for what happened at the concert.

With 64GB of RAM the new MacBook Pro will only need 3 minutes to open Slack

So one of my apps has a ton of old people using it and they always mess up the registration process. So I have to add a check to make sure they’re going to the right place before they register. New route name is obvious: /register/ok-boomer #okboomer

?if there is Post Malone is there also Get Malone and Put Malone?

What fresh hell does this day bring? Well, my backup tokens are all invalid for my @digitalocean account so I think I’m fucked.

@coderabbi I almost want to apply, lowball them so I get an interview then get to the final round and restart negotiations with them just to piss them off and waste their time. Just say, “oh sorry no that’s not my salary...that was my guess, my salary is 2x that”

So I’ve lost 45lbs and I’ve had random little children say I look handsome. One in my sons class last Friday and I was like, “uh thanks...” but now with this second complement today, I’m starting to really wonder wtf people thought of me prior to the weight loss.

Hey @digitalocean I’ve got a down site and we’ve put in 2 tickets with no response…is public shaming the only way to get in touch with you?

@tahjholden You and your family are in our thoughts today. Sending you guys love and strength.

My 4y/o asked me what would happen if aliens took all the trees to space and now I have a new irrational fear.

When you’re working late and you end up totally inverting your nav elements…you know it’s time to call it a night.

As a Jr Dev I worked with a Sr Dev that always asked, “but why…” to everything. Infuriated me at the time. All these years later, I get it. Thats a key difference between a Jr/Mid/Sr dev, the willingness to ask, “but why” to everything, question all your teams/your assumptions

Someone is actively trying to compromise an account of mine, I got a 2FA notification...but I can't tell from what account because it was a phone call. Panicking because to get to the 2FA that means you HAVE my password, but I can't tell to account what because it didn't say

@stauffermatt I actually teach PHP to students, first place I point them is PHP the Right Way, then we go through the Laracasts beginning PHP series
