Gabor Ratky and Attila Kisko: AddOn Studio for World of Warcraft

Sign in to queue


Gabor Ratky and Attila Kisko from EPAM Systems are two of the developers building AddOn Studio for World of Warcraft.

AddOn Studio is a free developer tool built on top of the Visual Studio Shell that brings a Visual Studio-like experience to creating Lua addons for World of Warcraft. In the video, you'll hear Gabor and Attila discuss how they build the key features Visual Studio developers expect including a visual designer, properties Window, a language service including a Lua parser and much more. You'll of course see a demo of an early version of AddOn Studio which is now an open beta!

    Let me just say basically, that I said 'exactly' exactly 427 times Wink (no, I did not count it. yet.)

    for those who not only want to build addons with addon studio but also want to work with MPQ, BLP or FrameXML files and code away, go over to codeplex and leverage as much as you can and let us know if you have any questions!
