I'd definitely be interested in something like "This Week in Nim", similar to "This Week in Rust".

I already listen to a bunch of podcasts, and I find development focused podcasts difficult to concentrate to. I listened to the phptownhall podcast for a while, but eventually bounced off of the repetitive content. Written content is much easier to focus on and follow for me.

Or something similar to the PyCoders Weekly newsletter, which is very high quality, and easier to curate maybe since it's just a list of all good news for the week, including new packages, jobs, discussion threads, and articles.

@Krux02 Would you like to join me in an introductory episode? The topic is "What's so special about Nim," and I'd like to give a nice overview of the language's superpowers.

I'd like to give something like 10 features that make Nim unique and appealing. Your insight as a seasoned developer will be most valuable.

This sounds great! There's plenty to talk about in terms of Nim's technology, cool projects being written in it, as well as it's future direction.

Will be listening to this as soon as it's up

@moigagoo Yes of course. Can you tell me when you plan to do those episodes. But I don't know if I can name you those features. I think it is more the combination of a few features that make Nim so powerful. And additionally to that I can name you a lot of features, that are neat. 2017-01-19 23:48:35
@Krux02 Great! I've written a private message to you on Gitter regarding the plan for the episode. 2017-01-20 20:32:16
@Krux02 feel free to email me if Gitter is not OK: moigagoo [at] live.com. 2017-01-23 17:57:37

Hi! I'd like to give a quick update on how things are going with the podcast.

So far I have recorded three sessions with two guests, which I plan to edit into two episodes. Three more guests are on the way.

This is my first time making a podcast, so editing an episode takes ridiculously long time. Please be patient, I'll release something eventually!

Also, please make sure to lower your expectations, at least for the first few episodes. As mentioned earlier, this is my first podcast, so I'm a pretty lousy host so far. Surely, I will get better win time.

That is awesome! Very happy to hear!

YouTube is a great way to spread the word about the Nim programming language. I would encourage everyone to consider video-recording tutorials, perhaps just showing a small sample program and explaining line-by-line how it works. You don't even need to put yourself on camera: just your voiceover and desktop recording, no fancy editing required. It doesn't have to be perfect: something is a lot better than nothing.
