Twitch has been traditionally a place for people to watch people play video games. However, there has been a recent rise in live coders on Twitch sharing knowledge and breaking down barriers. Learning in public requires vulnerability and patience.

Layla is a proud member of the Twitch coding community and a member of The Live Coders Team. In this talk from DevRelCon 2021, she takes us through her journey of live coding on Twitch: the challenges, fears, and the surprising community support and involvement and you why you should check out the growing community of developers on Twitch and hopefully inspire you to start your own journey to learn in public!
