Hi!

I have an ambitious goal to run a Nim podcast. My inspiration is primarily Talk Python to Me —a weekly podcast about Python. The plan is to deliver news and insights about Nim directly from the people who shape it—developers.

I know I would listen to such podcast if it existed, but what about you? Would you subscribe to it? Are there any particular topics you want covered or guests you think I should invite? Please share you opinion, it's very important!

Thanks!

Hello!

I would love to listen to something like this, although I would probably end up talking on it fairly often as well.

I actually don't listen to podcasts at all these days. I think it's time for me to find some good podcasts apps for my phone.

I would certainly listen and subscribe to such a podcast.

I can't name any guests in particular, but I'm interested in anyone who gets to use Nim for work.

I use Nim for a personal collection of tools, but haven't been able to convince others to try it out seriously.

Sounds like a cool idea, but I'd be interested in reading a newsletter first. 2017-01-09 22:39:15
That would be AWESOME!

One thing I'd like to suggest is not to become overly focused on one centralized project and one homogenous format: audio podcast, video YouTube channel, blog, weekly link roundup, social media page, etc. Maybe at one instance you can do an audio interview, at another instance a video chat recording (ex), etc. Different people can do different things as opportunities come up. It will all come together via syndication on Reddit, this forum, etc.

(NOTE: I used to do a lot of Facebook outreach for Nim, but I've decided to quit Facebook - hope someone else can take over.)

I was listening to chaos radio podcasts abount programming languages, I watched c++ conference talks and I watched the Nim talks from Araq. So I guess I would generally be interested, depending on the topic and how well it is made. I remember that chaos radio was from time to time not very well made, but it is too long ago to remember why I didn't like it. Be prepared and try to speak about important stuff for the majority of the time. By now, I could even imagine to be in such a podcast, because I have something to say. 2017-01-10 02:10:51

Thanks for the replies! They will help me find the right direction for the podcast.

You surely would, if you don't mind of course  I have a list of topics for the first 20 episodes, and you're already involved in five of them. Hope that won't take too much of your time and you won't end up hating me and the podcast!

I'm interested in anyone who gets to use Nim for work.

I have a couple of potential guests who use Nim in production, so I hope we'll get that covered. (I'm actually using Nim for work myself, so if you have any questions about "selling" Nim to the management, deploying Nim apps, etc., feel free to ask.)

I'd love to have a regular Nim newsletter, too. I'm afraid I won't be able to do the podcast and the newsletter though; the podcast alone feels like a very time-consuming task. If anyone else would start the newsletter, that'd be great.

@Libman

That would be AWESOME!

Thanks!

I just hope to be able to do the podcasting, let alone vlogging, blogging, and other things you mentioned. So, I'll focus on the podcast and hope that someone else covers the other bases.

That would be great! I have a bunch of topics without a guest assigned. Would you like me to share them with you, so you could maybe pick the ones close to your heart? If there's nothing you like in the list, feel free to suggest your own topic.

A little bit late, but I would love to hear and definitely subscribe to a Nim podcast! Thanks a lot for the initiative! 2017-01-10 08:23:50
I don't think I would listen to a podcast, but I would definitely be interested in a different (textual) format, such as This week in Nim 2017-01-10 08:32:33
Yes of course just keep the updates coming, I look from time to time in this forum. 2017-01-10 13:16:58
