We're launching a new feature called "codecasts" through which I think the way we learn frontend coding can be improved massively.
What exactly is "Codecasts" and How is it different ?
The most exciting part is that, it's public, which means anyone else can also make codecasts that can help him teach his students or maybe use in workshops or help his team mates with some problems. If the codecast is really interesting, then I would love to feature it in the gallery. The process of creating is very simple:
- Go to Labs.
- Click the Record button.
- Write your code in the HTML/CSS/JS codeboxes. Make sure you write a lot of comments to make sure the "watcher" follows the entire process.
- When completed, click the Stop button. The same button can also be used to pause. You can think, wonder, go away, take a break for as much time as you want - it is not a problem and then come back, continue working on the codecast.
Anyone can then just visit that recording from the auto-generated URL and click on a play button inside a player that will playback the entire typing process in a "video" style.
I think it is best if you check out a LOT of codecasts here, then you'll exactly know what I am talking about.
Audio support is not there yet, i.e., you cannot really record your voice along with the codecast but it is something we'll will be considering in the future.
