If there is anything redeeming about College Conductor, it was as a teaching tool. I’ve done a lot of Django code for work, and I brought that same thoroughness to this project. After listening to an episode of The Changelog about live streaming software development on Twitch, I started to share my efforts on College Conductor live.
Over a year later, I have streamed nearly 40 lessons in an episodic format to teach people about Django and building real projects. My service may have had no real customers, but the techniques I apply to building things are very much the techniques that I use at work.
