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.


Was going to try and livestream from my couch today due to my back. Doc is making things difficult...probably going to just record and post something.

stop setting a sass variable for the colors black and white. It’s literally less characters to type #000 and #fff.

Asked my kids to go the basement and clean up their toys. I can’t tell if they’re cleaning or reenacting a Saw movie #parenting

Today I learned that Minnie Mouse has a cat. Just a normal cat. I find everything about that very disturbing

@frankdejonge Oh I also had to manually delete the brew installed php.ini files there were ones for php 5.6, 7, 7.1 and 7.2. Once I deleted those things got back to normal on my system

@frankdejonge I removed every php extension, uninstalled php, pruned/cleaned and got rid of all the php kegs. I had to restart my computer to make sure it was using The Mac version of php after that I installed php from home brew and pecl install for my extensions (redid, xdebug and imagick)

oh wow…almost did something very dumb. I accidentally created a folder named ~ in a folder I was working in. Realizing this folder doesn’t need to be there I went to delete it… `rm -Rf ~` some part of my brining said, “WTF ARE YOU DOING” before I hit enter.
