Yesterday I learned that Games Done Quick use open source software for their broadcast graphics. The person responsible for developing the layouts and some of the software involved has done a video series on their GDQ layouts system, and GDQ open sources their broadcast layouts each year.

(as someone who is into broadcast design, this is extremely my shit)

(some of you may be horrified to hear this, but they use Electron for part of it)

@dzuk that choice is between them and their deities.

I actually knew this already, but it's still astounding to realize now and then that they're using the same production level open source software that I use for my recording and streaming.

@dzuk @codl This is so neat! I was just saying how cool it'd be if this year's awesome GDQ graphics wound up being HTML5/JS, and look! :D

@dzuk @codl This is neat! I want to link this on Hacker News. Do you want me to link this toot or copy and paste and leave you out of it?
