Developer Junior: Creating Your Own Games with Kodu

Developer Junior: Creating Your Own Games with Kodu

  • Comments 2

My tech show for kids, Developer Junior, premieres today on Butterscotch.com! In this episode, Junior (the puppet) and I (the human) take a look at the Kodu game builder system and go through a quick tutorial:

Developer Junior is a show on Butterscotch.com aimed at the younger set and is all about helping kids make the most out of the technology in their everyday lives. It’s about writing programs, creating media, playing games, and having fun with technology. (It’s also a dream come true for me – I always thought I’d be a great host for a kid’s show.)

There’s another episode coming up, in which Junior and I walk through the process of making a movie using Live Movie Maker. Watch for it!

  • Okay, so I'm a little confused about this butterscotch.com website.  When I right click on the video itself, I get a flash control.  When I right click on the video play/pause/stop/volume piece I get a WMP control.  I didn't know you could do that.

    Great video though.
