Season 5 Episode 34

Show edited transcription
What's up, everybody? Welcome to another episode of the Compile Swift podcast. A couple of things to announce in this one. Now, you're going to see some name changes coming around soon, especially if you follow my livestream.

Now, first of all, let me start by saying thank you to all of my livestream community out there for all the support and everything else. This week, I announced that I won’t be doing the live stream anymore.

Now, this may be a temporary thing. Let me start by saying that, but also because I want to realign it to where I am now. Right now. For the longest time, even before Swift existed, I’ve had many other interests. Now, let me start by saying that Swift is not going away. Still a thing. Still my main thing, right?

But I want to enable me to follow and explore some other things that I do that I’ve not been able to stream so much up until now. You’ve seen me do some of it: web dev and game development. And so I wanted to reflect that in the way the live stream potentially goes forward and some of the other platforms.

Let me start by saying that the Compile Swift podcast is not changing. It is what it is. The Compile Swift podcast is still a thing, right? Let’s make that clear. As I said, Swift is my main deal, and I have no plans to change that anytime soon, but on the livestream, I will change it.

So you may have already noticed this Compile Swift is not. It’s not the name of the livestream anymore. It is now CompileDev. I know. I think that’s pretty good too. Pretty clever of me, right? It’ll automatically change for you. But in case you’re wondering, or you go to look for twitch. tv forward slash CompileSwift It’s not going to be there.

You want to go to twitch. tv/compiledev. Now, of course, I’ve been a bit clever with the name, I think, because changing it to compile dev enables me to explore all of the development I do explicitly. Like I say, game development, web development, and anything else.

That I do the up until now, I’ve been doing it, and I’ve been saying to myself, you know, can’t do this on the live stream or can’t do this on whatever because Swift, it’s in the name, right? I decided to rebrand the, essentially just the live stream at this point. Now, I am taking a little bit of a break from the regular schedule on the live stream.

It’s going to be more of an if and when for a little while. Indeed, for the rest of this year, 2023, because I just got a lot of things going on, and part of the problem I was having and part of my self-imposed frustration with the live stream was that I had to do it every week.

And I want to break that up a little bit, not to become lazy, but I want to Rethink that. And also, because it’s on the Twitch affiliate, I have to stream live to Twitch. Not exclusively because they did change it recently, but you still have to be exclusive for the chat room, which is just a bit weird, right?

YouTube or something like that simultaneously, and you’re in the YouTube chat room. You don’t see the Twitch chat and vice versa, and that would make for really weird situations and conversations. I’m looking at all of this regarding the live setup. Again, to reiterate here, Compile Swift, is not going away.

I will not be a thing that disappears, undoubtedly not anytime soon anyway. The podcast, the website, and everything else carry on as usual. And, of course, you can find me in all the regular places. I probably will retire from Twitter / X at some point because, let’s face it, I disagree with how that platform’s going.

Indeed, the folks that run it have some. outlooks on life. I would put it that way and have a habit of creating mayhem, and I don’t want to be any part of that. So you’ll probably find me more on Mastodon. I’ll put a link in the show notes. It’s always in the show notes and things like that.

So, this is a bit of a short episode here, but I wanted to let you know what was going on. as part of the transparency with my community. And like I said, it may be a temporary break on the livestream for now but don’t worry that you can’t find it. Just go to CompiledDev on Twitch.

I do have as well. But right now, it will point you to Compile Swift. So anyway, like I say, just rethinking at the end of the year, plans for next year and how to expand more than reduce, as it were. So that’s it, folks. I hope you’re having a great week, and I will catch up with you in the next one.
