In this webinar we're going to build a simple game and along the way get familiar with how to structure the different components of applications in vvvv gamma.

This webinar is ideal as a follow up option if you took one of the vvvv gamma introduction webinars we are offering.

Once you’re familiar with the basics of the visual language you might need a little challenge. Building a game from scratch is a usually a good way of diving deeper. Games have all the aspects of proper applications. They require you to handle user input, manage the game logic, maybe keep a high-score or save a state to disk so it can be recalled the next day. So in this webinar we’re going to build a simple game and along the way get familiar with how to structure the different components of applications.
