Tutorial written by KyatricOriginally published on 29th, February 2012 - 9 revisions

Based on the two episodes (part 1, part 2) from extra-credits the goal of this tutorial is to make the point on what it is and what it takes to be a developer using C2.
Even if the sign says "No programming involved", I consider that you are to use and have about the same skills as a "regular programmer" if you want to make complex applications and/or games with C2.
By the end of this tutorial you will be better informed/prepared to what the game maker "job" is.

So let's see what is a programmer and what are the similarities and the differences with a developer in C2.

Note : apparently the videos have issues being displayed on the original website. You can still look on youtube for the keywords : "Extra Credits: Playing Like a Designer" and find both parts

@Kyatric, as usual you hit the ball out of the park and I will be referencing this page many times as I "forge" ahead in my games, thanks.

That was a nice tutorial. I would have loved to learn more that wasn't in the videos you first linked, but still the explanation and details you gave were really valuable.
Thanks !
