Starcoder Uses a Multiplayer Game to Teach Programming (Video # 2)

We ran video # 1 about Starcoder yesterday and linked to the project’s Kickstarter page. At that time, the project had raised $3221 out of a $4000 goal. Today they’re up to $5836, which means they’ve reached their goal and then some, and they still have four days of Kickstarting to go. Nice! It looks like Starcoder will soon be available to a lot more students than are using it now, and that (hopefully) there will be enough server capacity to accommodate students who want to sign up and play on their own, not necessarily with help from their schools. To learn more about Starcoder, you may want to check out these video clips on Vimeo that not only show you how the game was developed, but give you a look at how it’s played. Note: this is video 2 of 2. The transcript covers both videos, plus some material we were forced to edit out of the videos due to length restrictions.)
