5-minute Video Tutorials on Jibe and Unity3d

I’ve written a bunch of tutorials and general articles on how to use Jibe and Unity3d.  Many people have told me they have found these articles helpful.  Thank you again for the feedback.

Now I’d like to start an additional project.  I’m going to build a library of short and very focused tutorial videos for Jibe users.

The catch: each video will be 5-minutes long.  No more, no less.

I’m limiting myself to 5 minutes because I think that’s a critical threshold for most people.  And I want these videos to be very easy to digest.

Here’s my new YouTube channel.  Please subscribe if you’re interested.  I’ll do my best to post a new video every few days.

And if you have any suggestions on specific topics you’d like me to cover, please let me know.  I want to create videos that are useful!

Creating these videos will be both fun and a challenge for me.  It’s always much more difficult to create something concise than it is to create something with no limits.

Which reminds me of a memorable quote by Blaise Pascal.

“I would not have made this letter so long except that I do not have the time to make it shorter.”

Here’s my first video: “What is Jibe?”

Take care,
-John “Pathfinder” Lester

  1. Shades of Torley! http://www.youtube.com/torley who has now gone MUSIC big time! In his SL days, he created over 100 tutorials, the most-viewed was “How to use Gestures” with 202K views. My opinion is that those SL tutorials were a major factor in boosting SL adoption rates. I bet Pathfinder can do likewise for RG Jibe! Go for it…

  2. Loved your demo world. ;)

      I was wondering when you’d notice. :D

      I’m thinking of using your world again as an example of a portal jumping you to a different scene. (going from the meeting space to the forest)
