I wanted to determine if there is any interest in having a weekly / bi-weekly / monthly (TBD) small group of people be a part of a live tutorial session… The idea would be to have an instructor covering a specific topic in a highly interactive session for about 90 minutes. Would like a small group of no more than maybe 7 people… Lots of QA, discussions…best practices, etc.
To make it worth the while of the instructor, each person would pitch in 5 bucks… I know, the person giving the instructions is not going to get rich, but the idea is to give back to the community. Nothing is stopping from giving more though…! I would help facilitate getting instructors for the topic wanting to be covered.
Some topics I think would benefit the community would be:
- Intro to C++ and the UE4 API. Understanding Macros, etc.
- Intro to Blueprints
- Understanding BP communications
- Advanced UMG
- Material Editor
Also, nothing says that we would do this in a single 90 minute session… it could be over the course of many weeks…
YouTube videos are great, but sometimes I want to scream into the monitor and ask a question… SO, please think about this and suggest topics and also how often we would like to do this. I’ve ran this by Alexander and he said go for it. This is not an official Epic endevour, more of a community effort but as always, the community team is very supportive!
Suggestions / opinions welcome!
