VL.ThePatchersGuide (Beginner Tutorial)

End of October '22 a friend asked me if I could make a collection of nodes for him that he should definitely know when learning Gamma. So during Nodevember I sat down going through every single node in the node browser to do so. The outcome now is a tutorial series of 37 patches and topics for beginners, covering everything from A to VL and Vector4 (Split).

nuget install VL.ThePatchersGuide

Some dogmas I had during the creation:

  • All nodes are only from the standard set in the node browser.
  • 2D and 3D drawing is treated and taught completely equally, all principles are presented for Skia and Stride.
  • No node is ever used that is not explained in the current video or hasn’t been in one of the previous ones.
  • Focus on clear principles and try not to go extremely complex.

Have fun exploring and bussi baba!
