We’re announcing this one early so everyone has time to submit loads of questions. Our next Twitch broadcast will cover a couple topics of interest.
First, you may recall Ryan Brucks’ FlipBook tool created for Zen Garden (see here, jump to 31:00). We got a better look at his work in today’s company meeting, and we think everyone else would benefit to see it in more depth, so Ryan will be back again to show how you’ll get to use this starting in 4.3.
In addition, we’ve seen the huge number of votes on the UE4 Roadmap for more programming workflow videos, so Lauren Ridge from the docs team will be leading our main discussion. Lauren is currently recording an extensive video series to help coders dive into UE4 more easily. Josh Markiewicz (and possibly other senior programmers) will be available to field questions, and this is where we’ll spend the bulk of our time.
