I'm starting a live stream[1] for making a book.
The book is The way to program - Lets think like a D(eveloper)

For now I will only commit to Mondays 12pm UTC+0.
I may stream at random times beyond that. Check my Twitter as to when
that might be[2].

The book I am making is available at[0]. For published versions of it[3].
Published version will not be free, but the raw resources used to
create it are under a creative commons license.

The book's purpose is to not teach D. Instead it focuses on teaching
programming concepts and ideas using D as a base.
Assuming the book creation is a success I have a few other books in
the pipeline. The second book will be covering sockets and threading
via IRC/XMPP. Third would be Web development. Fourth UI's.

There has already been a few streams, so content has already got a
good start. If there is interest, I may stream some of Devisualization
project development.

Usually the stream will last 2-3 hours depending upon how many watch
and interact.

A couple days ago livecoding.tv came out of closed beta. Feel free to
join!
Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with livecoding.tv. Although the devs
are great.

That's pretty cool. I didn't know a service like this existed. I hope
all goes well...

Yeah, thanks. I'll be starting in about half an hour.

What will be your development environment?

The streaming machine is pretty complex so:

Host machine Mac book pro ~ half a year to a year old (extremely good specs)
Host OS: OSX 10.10
Streaming software: OBS (the new cross platform version)
Music playing software: VLC on host
Now playing text exporter for VLC: https://gist.github.com/rikkimax/39b46f7ff3aa0c93b5cf
VLC to OBS: http://rogueamoeba.com/freebies/soundflower/
VM system: Parallels 10
VM OS: Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon
Other software: Remarkable[0], git

Nothing really big difference between fresh install of the distro.

The font size is a bit off. What with the Retina resolution. But generally I have increased the font size up enough that people can see it well.
