I'm betting a lot that HTML5 will take off and one day overtake flash. I release all plugins I make for c2 to try to give back to the community and make ashley's work a bit lighter. I really want this to succeed.
Recently I paused plugin/behavior development because I am planning to teaching some courses on game development using HTML 5, and that means Construct 2 - it's obviously a great opportunity for all involved: my students learn a good tool and get ready for when the market starts demanding professionals that work with HTML 5, Scirra gets some extra purchases from word of mouth and student purchases (we could even arrange some deal to make each student buy a copy), and I make money from teaching.
C2's ease of use and simple, intuitive interface allows me to teach teenagers, who are eager to get into game dev (and hopefully creating the next big MMO, heh). I started working on some material for the course, such as books, videos and example files and now I'm wondering some things:
First, would I need an indie license per seat or will the free edition suffice? Or would I need a commercial license, since classes fall within "using Construct 2 in a for-profit organisation"?
Also, my students are all Brazilians and, being teenagers, I don't expect them to have any proficiency in english (most don't even know basic stuff), so they'll probably struggle a bit with the interface. Is there a translation API in the works? Even if it's very rough and unfinished, or I have to edit strings using a hex editor manually, I'd love to try my hand at translating C2 to portuguese - is that even possible at the current stage?
Thanks for your attention!
