Tutorial Tues! Live Gamedev Lessons on Twitch!!!

You know twitch.tv as the game, and often, gamedev streaming video site. But why can’t it also be used for educational purposes, to host live lessons? Honestly, I’m sure someone has done that already. But when I do it, it will be better! 🙂 Soon I’ll be streaming live gamedev lessons on twitch!!!

I’m in the process of setting up my Twitch channel as we speak. In the early going it will be a bit of experimentation with different styles, content, and equipment. I intend to stream game play (mostly New Nintendo 3ds XL) in the morning/afternoon, and #gamedev at night. Once I’m comfortable, I’ll host a #gamedev class much like those I taught at University, only better. It will, of course, use my No-Code Video Game Development using Unity and Playmaker book as the text. Then I’ll be streaming live gamedev lessons on Twitch!

Of course, I won’t neglect the nickelcitypixels.com youtube channel. If you want to get ahead of your classmates, check it out and watch Section 1 of the No-Code course. I’ll also repost the live stream and some behind-the-scenes footage as well. For example, I’m constructing a killer new computer desk to make live-streaming possible. I intend to vlog its construction.

Getting MORE Mega-Desk.


Twitch seems perfect for this kind of thing. Students will be able to view the process and ask questions in real-time. As an educator, I’ll get immediate feedback, be able to see what works and what doesn’t, and iterate accordingly. It’s as if the internet is finally making good on its promise of long-distance learning and collaboration!

If this sounds like a great idea to you, be sure to subscribe to the site newsletter for updates. Otherwise, check back here early and often for a schedule of live gamedev lessons in my new and improved No-Code course!
