We’re looking for people to send us screen recordings of your coding session, anywhere from 10-30 minutes. The purpose of this is for us to better understand your coding patterns and habits. We want to know what you do when you code, and this would help us to develop better features in Hopscotch.
Option 1: Video recording
The video should be 15-30 minutes long ideally. The minimum should be 10 minutes long.
Email to firstname.lastname@example.org directly. You can email me a link to Dropbox, google drive or any other platform, or you can also attach the video to the email directly.
Please include your Hopscotch or forum username in the email
(For people who struggle to come up with a subject title, you can just use your Hopscotch username or “coding session recording” as the subject for your email)
Option 2: Sign up for a coding session with Yuanyuan
You do not need to show your face or talk during the session. All that I would need you to do is to share your screen while I watch you code for 10-30 minutes.
I won’t ask you questions unless you want to talk to me afterward!
What should you be doing?
You can code a project from scratch
You can update an existing project
You can keep working on a project that you have already started
You can code along a tutorial we have in the Learn tab
You can add code to someone else’s project to add your twist to their project
You can work on multiple projects during this coding session, this means you can switch between drafts
The video does not need to be of a project that works, you can be exploring or trying to fix a bug in your code. If you are stuck while coding, it’s okay to have pauses or a period of time where you think and do not actually code in the editor, please do not edit those parts out. We will not share your code with anyone else - this is just for us to understand your coding process.
What we’re not looking for
We’re not looking for a recording of you playing a game in Hopscotch
Because the size of the videos would be very large, please do not upload the videos to the forum directly. Email me please(email@example.com)!!!
Not a specific time frame, but in the next week or so would be nice!
I also want to note that you do not need to be coding something special, it can just be whenever you code in Hopscotch. I also don’t need to see the end of your coding. This means that I don’t really care if by the end of the recording whether your project plays or not.
what about if we’re talking a long break? usually when i’m stuck i turn off my ipad and go draw paperwork/calculations until i figure out how to code - usually takes longer than 30 minutes so i think it’s better to cut that off
