I actually have the opposite problem. I don’t like making slides. I was a pastor, and my churches didn’t do slides with the sermon. I generally know the right amount to say, but to make quality slides can be more work than I want to do.

That's not to say there shouldn't be ANY live code, some can be great, especially showing the simplicity or power of an API or library, but I think people appreciate having more than just an editor on screen for a talk. At least I hope they do 😁

But, I've talked about this with others and agree, I think your information density can go way down and essentially you're showing off typing skills. You can get better information and often convey it better by getting away from live coding.

Sometimes, I'm really tempted to make a talk entirely of live coding because once you get over the nerves, it's a lot less work to type for 30 minutes and talk, than it is to create 30 minutes worth of slides.

I love giving talks. I don't love the part where I have to figure out (roughly) all the words I'm going to say and the damn slides to go with them. That shit takes forever.

I’m sorry that’s tough. I was in a different boat, since I’m an established dev and had plenty of savings. I was able to make money doing odd contracts and creating a course. Best of luck in your search.

I have a set of bills that never change. Rent, Internet, cell, insurances, loan payments, subscriptions, etc. there’s actually very little that fluctuates wildly in my spending.

No, I haven’t interviewed myself yet, I wrote about it here: I’ve also shared the story on some other podcasts as well.

Yeah, I was a pastor, but I know several other pastors and rabbis who made the same career switch! 😄

I keep mine large for the same reason. My eyes just feel more relaxed while working.

YNAB is a zero-based budget system, your goal is to give every dollar you bring in a task, whether that's a bill, savings, investments, a goal etc. It really helps to know what you're doing with _all_ of your money.

I hope the judge laughs the asshole right out of the courtroom. This is ridiculous. 🤦‍♂️
