:arrow_right:Discord servers::arrow_left:

THE DEVSHOP SERVER - This one belongs to me, talk about pretty much anything, any engine, focus on Lumberyard and the tutorials I provide for the community, find resources, post about your projects, just talk etc…

THE UNOFFICIAL LUMBERYARD SERVER - This is pretty much the same as mine except its strictly Lumberyard, alot bigger and much like any discord can find people chatting when the team can respond here on the forums (people gotta go home and eat lol)



:arrow_right:YouTube Channels:arrow_left:

LUMBERYARD OFFICIAL CHANNEL - The official channel ran by @JKingpin. usually atleast 2 videos a week on a variety of topics. You will also find updates and most likely community news video and the like.

THE DEVSHOP CHANNEL - (You thought I was going to put mines first huh, what kinda guy do you think i am :wink:) So my channel as been around since a few weeks or months of the engine going public, I take on a host of topics and also have a few video series, as well as topic on general indie development in general.

AMAZON GAMETECH CHANNEL - Previous tutorial channel so still good content to sift thru, also you may find spotlight type videos along with more generalized Amazon Gametech video that encompass all of amazon including lumberyard and its services
