Live Coding with Notch

22 Aug 2011

I can’t help loving the concept of live coding. I’ve had a hard time understaning fans of e-sports (as well as sports) and watching streamed games until I watched Notch live stream a coding session a while back.
I had totally forgotten about the concept until this weekend when Notch streamed another coding session.
This time it was part of Ludum Dare, a competition to create a game in 48 hours.
Notch wrote a game called Prelude of the Chambered, it is a nice retro Wolfenstein/Minecraft looking Java game. You can play it here and here is the source code

There is a recording on YouTube from the live coding session. Crack open a beer and enjoy ultra geekness.
Who knows, you might acctually learn something.
