There's never been a better time to be a one person app developer than right now. Tony Godfrey used stock assets to create a game that offers in-app purchases, leaderboards, in-game currency, rewarded ads, localization, holiday themes, analytics, and he's getting his app talked about by big media sites. Look for the Corona Geek podcast interview with Tony coming soon. Until then, read the featured blog post to see what Hoppy Naut is all about, https://coronalabs.com/…/2016/02/11/featured-app-hoppy-naut/ ‪#‎coronasdk‬

Thanks Warren. There wasn't a need to redo the forum. Plus that is a separate piece of software from the website. We do have plans to refine the organization of info on the website, to make things easier to find.

Is it important for students to learn computer science? Generating frictionless game templates, and learning to create custom firing patterns for player weapons. It's all in today's Corona Geek. Links are in the show notes, http://qwkurl.com/cg179a #coronasdk

Join us as we continue our twin stick shooter game development series. During the course of this series we are creating a twin stick shooter game modeled after Geometry Wars. 

http://www.ign.com/wikis/geometry-wars-retro-evolved/Enemies

We are covering how to add weapons like cannons and mines, implement parallax camera effects, create radial explosions, cache objects, calculations as optimizations, and remapping inputs to allow for game play via touch as well as game controllers.

Download the source code to get a taste of the game we are building.

This week's Hangout trailer is for the upcoming Stripe plugin by the amazing Jason Schroeder. He's putting a lot of his own time and effort into making something useful for the community.  So if you feel moved to do so, consider using the PayPal donation button on his website, http://www.jasonschroeder.com/

The original weekly G+ Hangout dedicated to mobile app development using Corona SDK.
Introduction
Tune in every Monday at 12pm Pacific.

Corona Geek is the official weekly Google+ Hangout focused on mobile app development using Corona SDK. 

Each week we discuss topics along side new and veteran Corona Developers and third party Corona tool creators with the goal of helping Corona Developers better understand app creation, app monetization, app marketing, and app analytics. 

As developers ourselves, we know these topics are essential to an app developers success and we believe the Corona SDK is the best app development tool to make it all happen.

Wanna be on the show or get your app reviewed? Hit us up on G+, Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube. Just look for CoronaGeek and tell us what's on your mind.


or email CoronaGeek@CoronaLabs.com
