Thanks for your message. I'll get back to you as soon as I can! In the meantime, why not say hi on Twitter.
Sponsorships and Collaborations
I write code for your entertainment.
(You’ll learn something, too!)
I have 10 years tech industry experience spanning web development, tech leadership, product and developer relations. A former music teacher, I specialise in live coding, making complex topics accessible, entertaining and engaging through story-telling and building silly (and serious!) websites. I also teach on my blog by creating in-depth technical tutorials, and sharing practical web development tips.
I am a partnered streamer on Twitch, streaming regularly to an engaged community who learn together via a thriving Discord server. I am also a Microsoft MVP for Developer Technologies, and was the winner of the 2021 Jamstack Conf Community Creator Award.
Work with me!
This is not an exhaustive list of the services I can provide, but is intended to give you an idea of the scope of what’s possible. Activities are centred around live streaming, with written content and demo code often produced as a result of those live streams.
Live streams on Twitch
Streams are usually a single event, but a series is possible if more appropriate.
The Cold Start
Launching a new product, or have a new feature you want to road-test? I’ll build something live on stream, bringing the audience on the developer journey. I always go in cold so you get raw, uncensored feedback on the developer experience — from me and 100s of other devs!
The Guest Star
Join me live on stream and pair programme with me to showcase your new product or feature. We’ll build something together and ship it live, whilst engaging with an energetic and curious audience of early adopters. You’ll also get a promotional meme.
Written content is a great addition to an ephemeral live stream, produced afterward as either a retrospective or short tutorial. The content is published on whitep4nth3r.com and usually cross-posted to DEV.to.
Demo apps and websites
Code that I build live on stream or as part of a written tutorial will (usually) be published as a public, MIT-licensed repository on GitHub. Bear in mind that these demos will not always be “finished”, but provide an example for developers who are exploring the technologies that I showcase. Demo repositories will be linked to from written tutorials.
Send me a message to discuss what you'd like to achieve with video.
Word on the street
It’s always awesome working with Salma! She’s a creative teacher, willing to learn in public, and just incredibly authentic in everything she does. The whitep4nth3r community is SO fun to be a part of!

Salma is GREAT! Her streams are fun, instructive and entertaining. Her audience is very engaged and I highly recommend pairing with her to build something with your tech!
Salma’s energy is contagious and it shows through her passion teaching developers through engaging content. Highly recommend Salma to anyone looking to get an actionable and engaging story in front of developers.
Salma is a builder. You can't help but get excited about dev when she's the one teaching. She's one of the first people I direct companies to when they're looking to make a better connection to web devs.
