A few days ago I've posted a short note on Twitter asking if anyone would be interested in a livestream about hacking/security/coding in English - I figured that since I'm already doing them in Polish, I might as well try to do one in English. The response was overwhelmingly positive (thanks!), so it seems time has come to set a date:
  • When: 15 July 2016, 19:00 UTC+2
  • Where: gynvael.coldwind.pl/live-en - the link is not yet working, but it will lead to https://livecoding.tv/gynvael (the platform might change for the next episode, depending on whether everything runs smoothly and the quality if good).
  • Topic: a CTF challenge or two, probably exploitation or reverse engineering; since this is the first episode I'll take it easy and go with something I'm already familiar with - either a challenge created by me or one I've already solved in the past.
  • What to expect: Broken Slavic-sounding English (I'm not a native, my accent is far from perfect and my vocabulary is scarce - you have been warned). Since I'm used to tutoring, I'll try to explain everything that I'm doing in a clear way.
Feel free to pass the link to this post to others whom might also be interested - the more, the merrier (plus, we get to do a stress test of the streaming infrastructure, which is a good thing for future episodes).

See you Friday!

Will do (unless it comes out terrible, then will don't) :)

When doing the Polish-language streams I did a couple of streams on Livecoding, Twitch and YouTube. All in all Twitch wasn't bad, but if you don't have any partnership with Twitch your account seems to be pretty limited in both stream quality and the time the videos are kept.

Livecoding back then was probably the best choice as far as a site-being-related-to-topic goes, but we run into some bugs + some features were missing (e.g. HTML5 player). Now it's a little better so I'm willing do give it another shot.

In case of Polish-language streams we did settle (based on a survey done among viewers) for YouTube which seems to work well. In case I run into some problems with Livecoding again I'll fallback to YouTube, so I'll see how it goes.

I'm not considering Twitch for the time being.

Consider anouncing yourself on some subreddits (e.g. RE, dev, securityctf)

Not a bad idea. There was a topic on /r/netsec already though.
