During last week’s Hangout we explored the core mechanics of the Ichi game. We covered bumper creation, bumper alignment, physic engine nuances, and one-touch input. As a bonus, the code also included a built in level editor.

On Monday we will be hanging out with Corona Developer, Caleb Place to talk about his popular particle effects library, CBEffects. CBE melds ease of use and infinite flexibility to create a vastly powerful engine and a completely new way of creating and managing particle effects. 

If you’re new to CBEffects, check out the GitHub repo this weekend and try it out. https://github.com/GymbylCoding/CBEffects

We’ll hear Caleb’s views on game development using particle effects and what is future plans are for the library. We’ll also spend time on storing data using JSON and managing button state. It’s going to be a fun Hangout.

During last week’s Hangout we looked at how to create and match puzzle pieces. If you’ve ever asked yourself, “How do you do that?” this will help answer your questions. There’s also some bonus bits about snapping objects to corners.

Tagline
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
