Hey there,

as mentioned in the "spreading the word" thread, I'll do a little experiment and offer a live coding workshop with screen sharing and voice chat where I'll tackle a small GitHub issue and talk to you about the how's and why's of it. It won't be super professional, focus is on providing a platform for you to learn something about the framework internals.

For now, I'd like to try this using Google Hangouts, mainly because it's really straightforward to use and offers bi-directional voice chat, which is probably a lot more comfortable than typing in a tiny chat box. If it gets too crowded, I might switch to something like Livecoding.tv or Twitch.

Let's try this today (03.09.2016), 18:00 UTC. Let me know if you can or can't make it so I'll have an idea, approximately, how many we'll be :) Will also post this on twitter and potentially TIGSource, so we might also have some guests.

The Google Hangouts chat room is here. I think I don't have to be in there for it to work, so feel free to try in advance. It's a video chat, but only for screen sharing reasons.

Not today, sorry - but if this becomes a recurring event, I'll try to find a reasonable time and date for this.

Neat idea. I'll try to make it -- can't make any promises, though.

Like the idea, most probably I can attend - at the beginning at least. Buuut... I'm not sure when is 18:00 UTC, because of daylight saving. Is it 19:00 or 20:00 in Germany now?

Edit. now means nowdays here, not now now

Ask Google "18:00 UTC to local" and it will tell you when that'll be in your time zone.

Sorry, I can't join the workshop. At this time I'm not at home.
Is it possible to upload the workshop on youtube?

Unfortunately I can't participate :(. Maybe you could upload it to YouTube like Cross said, so people who can't join don't miss it :)

Judging from the responses so far, I'll first determine if anyone shows up at all xD
