Join Jonathan Sears for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the Community, part of SteamOS for Developers First Look.
…Previously, I talked a little bit…about the community functions within SteamOS, but…I want to talk about them a little more and in some more detail.…So, let's start by going to a game details page,…in this case Portal 2, and go down to Community.…Now, I'm going to go to Find Community Groups.…I'm going to scroll down and choose Portal 2 Game Hub.…So once I click on Portal 2 Game Hub, it's going to load up the main page.…
And in here you can see it's telling me…things like there's 1,117 people playing, there's three people chatting.…It'll give you a whole bunch of other statistics.…It'll tell you where to buy it, and it'll…list some of the things that have been recently uploaded.…I'm going to scroll to the top.…There's a bar up here with different sections, and let's review them.…First, we have Discussions.…Discussions is basically the forums.…So if you're a developer, this is very important for…you because this is how you're going to communicate with people.…
You have things like can't start Portal.…It keeps crashing.…
