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.


@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.

Most Dad line so far from @SonySantaMonica #GodOfWar Atreus screams, “FATHER YOU’RE ON FIRE!” and Kratos retorts, “I’m fine it will pass” had to pause the game to laugh because i saw myself in that moment.

@AntMennie I thankfully/unfortunately do not have any pictures of Nanna’s doll collection. One day she had 1 then the next there were 12. All under plastic. Weirded me out man.

Imagine Netflix pulling a moviepass of sorts…pay a couple of extra bucks a month but you’re able to see whatever is paying in a netflix theater:

@AustenAllred @yoavkaufman @foswi Same thing happened when we went to buy a couch. A couch! They were like, “but it’s 6 months same as cash?” I’m like, but I’m offering you f*cking cash...please just take my money.

Asked the kids what movie they wanted to watch. Steeling myself to have to watch a crappy kids movie for the 70th time. They picked Return of the King! woot!
