We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Decentraland is fundamentally a community driven project. We’re building an open, virtual world on top of open source tools, so sharing and collaboration are at the very core of Decentraland’s values.

We’re very happy to see this taking shape through our community generated tutorials, blog posts, and meetups, as part of our bounty program! In the same spirit as the Genesis Content Program, the Decentraland bounties are intended to help encourage growth, engagement, and collaboration within the community.

Today, we’d like to draw your attention to some of the video tutorials that are being created through this program.

Video Tutorials #

Decentraland is a shared space, and we want to make sure that everyone has the resources that they need to make the most of their LAND. In an effort to support that initiative, we’ve been sponsoring a bounty for educational, video tutorials focused on teaching new users how to use the SDK.

We’ve already received several excellent submissions that we’d like to highlight below. You can always find these tutorials, and other great video content, on our Youtube channel and in our documentation.

Building a Simple Interactive Scene #

This is a great introductory video from Ryan that gets new users up and running with the SDK. Follow along with the tutorial to learn how to create a very simple little scene in which users can click on an entity causing it to rotate.

Adding Predefined Animations to a 3D Model #

One of the benefits of the Decentraland SDK is the ability to download and use pre-built models and animations. In this next tutorial, Ryan takes you through how to download freely licensed models from Google Poly, with added animations found on Mixamo!

Building a Jukebox #

For new developers learning how to use the SDK, building interactive content is an exciting milestone. In this tutorial, Nick shows how to create a music jukebox that plays different songs when the user presses different buttons.

Creating an Artificially “Intelligent” Dog #

As you start to get more experienced with the SDK, you’ll want to begin building more complicated entities. This tutorial from Nick demonstrates how to create a simple AI dog that interacts with the user in different ways.

Are you a developer with a love for teaching? Want to help grow the Decentraland community? #

We still have a few bounties open for writing blog posts, organizing meetups, and giving talks about Decentraland. Soon, we’ll be adding more bounties for tutorials and videos like the ones featured above.

If you’re a developer, love using the SDK, and are interested in creating a step-by-step guide, sample scene, or a video tutorial, check out our bounty descriptions on GitCoin! We’d love to hear from you!

Our SDK provides everything you need to start developing games and applications.
