Our good friends Lee Reilly and Rick Olson from GitHub are in town and hanging out with us on the stream! We’re gonna talk about GitHub, the partnership with Epic Games, and all sorts of other things. Also, the results are in from the January #ue4jam! We’ll announce the finalists and play their games live on the stream. Hang with us!
/\ I’d like to encourage everyone to not ‘cancel subscription’; I’ve been paying for it since first release and I think everyone could do the same. I think is more than fair to support Epic for such a great piece of software they provide us (even though they are a multi million company and we’re not)
Value their work, they deserve it.
Oh and this one will be interesting stream. I’ll be there, won’t forget this time
We don’t owe Epic anything. We can cancel for any reason at any time. I usually do pay monthly, but I don’t see a real point in paying when I’m not getting a full release that month. Additionally, many of us are indie and some of us have to make a $20 decision. It’s not much, but for some people it’s a real expense.
How do you decide who is admitted to the Student Developer program? Most software companies I’ve seen are able to simply verify a university issued email address within seconds (Microsoft’s DreamSpark program for instance). Do you actually look at the applications and decide on a case-by-case basis?
