The Nuitka development has become richer by me developing online once in a while. This obvious has a lot of constraints to address, but it will happen on a regular basis.


On Discord, we have a Streaming room. There is a “react” bot, that you can use to be automatically notified by Discord, when a Stream is started, this one is in: the welcome channel of the Discord.

The main chat on Gitter will be linked a chat room on Discord, so for people not on Discord, they still have that available.

The stream will be recorded in Youtube and later put online, I do not have the resources, to maybe put out only a few excerpts, not sure how good it’s going to be. There will be quality issues in the beginning. And I don’t want to spend a lot of time editing material that might not get watched all that much.

Discord could be used for a call-in part. I could un-mute people and discuss one on one with viewers, live on air, answering questions.

So expect to see me streaming to Youtube on my existing channel that I cleaned up a bit:


I believe normally the weekend should be used. The times will have to depend much on my family situation. I will announce start dates some days ahead of time on Twitter and to the Streams react bot.

I usually plan to stream with one lunch/sports break, on my CEST morning and an another one in the afternoon or evening time, if I can spell a full day. This is essentially a work day on Nuitka for me.


My idea is to take on challenging topics, e.g. making code specialization of INT LONG and CLONG work for code like some_int += 2, where the 2 is currently used as a prepared INT or LONG object (depending on Python version).

In streams so far, it worked really well to commonly improve the web site, add specific optimization, etc. Doing a report of current project status and generally clarification would be good, but I think there also needs to be some plan, like making a certain piece of code quicker. I will be asking for submissions on Twitter and/or in a blog post, or just do what’s on my mind, that should be done, but hasn’t been done in a while and that’s sort of interesting.


I think I could e.g. go with streaming on Sunday and announcing the topic on Friday in a blog post, and/or a Twitter post. Then when going live, a Discord ping is done, and maybe a few hours before. Gitter chat will also get a text message. Youtube has the bell, that I might ask people to use, but I don’t like asking these things.
