First coding livestream

Sumit Kumar @HacksOfSumit

Yesterday, I have live-streamed coding on for the first time. It was a bit scary but awesome and I will definitely do it again.

What was done during the livestream:
✅ Redone landing page
✅ Published Stripe plans
✅ Fixed some bugs
✅ Published the first "projects" feature, broken tho

    Did you already have some following first? I was really surprised how positive the reaction was when I tried Twitch last year.

      I had a few people tuning in. 3 to 4 at any given time. Very low of course as this was my first livestream and I don't have much YouTube Followers (30). New to the video game, but I like it much more than blogging so I'll keep doing it 💪

      Good question. I decided to try YouTube in German instead of english but I'm constantly struggling if this is the right decision. Same on Twitter. Should I "niche" to the German crowd or go english for more viewers potential?
      One thing why I wanted to go German is because I talk a lot about financial stuff, building businesses and investing too and there are definitely unique aspects only applying to Germany/Germans.

        I think if you are on Indie Hackers you should propably try and please this crowd. Doesnt mean you cant talk about the unique aspects of german finance stuff :)
