Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I remember seeing a website where people upload videos of themselves writing code. However, I can not find that site now.

The purpose is to see how others code, to see how they refactor their code, to see how they use their paradigms, etc.

Update: I remember that the video contains almost no audio, it's only one guy writing code, making mistakes, typos, fixing mistakes. If I read the final code, I can figure out how it works, but if I see how the code was wrote and what kind of mistakes were made along the way, then I can better understand it. I guess this is the main reason that they make this kind of video.

Only the screen or the entire desk setup? Just out of curiosity, what are you hoping to get out of this? –  Steven Jeuris Nov 25 '11 at 9:41
Guessing it is simply poor choice of wording and your question is where you can find some video tutorials which walk through creating particular code segments, you still need to adjust it as to which technology you are interested in. Channel9 is a famous resource for .NET videos. –  Steven Jeuris Nov 25 '11 at 9:48
this sound really weird, the only thing remotely like that comes to my mind are some videos about the happy hacking keyboard where some users shows off postures and styles and their speed at typing, i never sees something like this before, i think that sourceforge.net can be enough. –  Micro Nov 25 '11 at 9:51

You probably won't find videos of people coding real applications since the business owns the Intellectual Property of what the code is used for. Channel9 will be your best choice. –  StuperUser Nov 25 '11 at 11:06

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions asking us to recommend a tool, library or favorite off-site resource are off-topic for Programmers as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it." – gnat, GlenH7, MichaelT, Jim G., thorsten müller

As a reply to your comment:

I don't know of any websites which list random video's of people coding to demonstrate best coding practices.

You are probably better of looking for discussions of best coding practices here on Programmers, or read books about the subject.

Some suggestions:

I think what you're asking about is coding screencasts. You can find a lot of them in video hosting sites like YouTube and vimeo, by searching for "language_x screencast" or "coding session" (or some other relevant combination). A couple of examples:

There are a lot of developer sites that feature screencasts, and PeepCode is solely dedicated to development screencasts, but its screencasts are not freely available. It would help if you tell us what language / technology you're interested in.

I forgot about that part of the question. :O I'll add Channel 9 here again for .NET related videos. –  Steven Jeuris Nov 25 '11 at 11:57
