My name is Matthew. Many people know me on the internet as TingThing. I am the developer of Platform Builder.
My goal has always been for Platform Builder to be quick and easy to learn. Because of that, I have a built-in manual and a feature which allows you to learn about almost anything by right-clicking on it. But for those of you who are visual learners, I decided to start recording video tutorials which take you though the pages of the manual.
This is a work in progress. Not all of the videos have been made yet, but you are welcome to view them here. I suggest you also follow me on YouTube so that you are more likely to see when I post something new. All of these videos are part of a YouTube Playlist as well.
