Senior Software Engineer and Live Coder for freeCodeCamp

I am a senior software engineer who live codes for the freeCodeCamp YouTube channel. I am currently into building things with React. I love sharing my coding experiences, including the struggles and failures with other developers. I am especially happy when I get a chance to encourage new developers.

Building a Mentoring Community Through Live Coding

Since I began live coding in May of 2017, an amazing community of developers of all ages, locations, and skill levels has grown around the live streams. We share idea, teach and support each other while working on real projects together. I would like to share my experience and offer some advice on how to create a respectful online environment where everyone is encouraged to ask questions and contribute and negativity is nearly non-existent.
