March Meetup Madness

  • Mar 8, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Indie City Coop

Woah! It's been a pretty busy start to 2014 for me, so my apologies for the long delay between our meetups. I'd like to get back in to the swing of things though, so let's aim TENTATIVELY to have our next meeting Saturday, March 8th. This should give all of us a a few weeks to clear out our calendar, and me some time to figure out what to plan!

First, I'd like to ask if anyone has space or suggestions about about how to acquire space somewhere in the Loop. A good number of our members are either from the suburbs or neighborhoods where getting to the sort-of-far north side of Chicago would be a hassle, so I'm figuring it'd be better on average for all of us if we can all take public transit towards downtown. So, if you yourself have a space that might fit about 20-50 of us, or if you have ideas about a place that might fit the bill, don't hesitate to drop me a line.

If we ARE able to find a venue in the Loop, I'll update this meetup and possibly send out a poll to see if we want to change the day -- my feeling is that weekends also tend to be conflict with people's personal schedules, and so if we're in a more accessible location like the Loop, perhaps we can try for a weekday evening after work.

OTHERWISE, let's just plan to meet at the Coop again!

Thirdly and finally, I'd also like to ask if anyone either has requests for a topic to cover at this upcoming meeting, or would themselves like to give a talk about a subject related to Unity. Or maybe an open Q&A / show&tell format would be better?

In general, the overall sentiment should be one of, "suggestions please!" :] The best way to reach me is either through twitter @TrinketBen or through the Meetup messaging system.

Hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day and I hope to see a lot of you in about a month!

    I don't know if anyone but me cares about this, but looking into data management in Unity I have found that you can do queries on lists, dictionaries, etc. using LINQ. I don't know the full limitations yet, and it seems like you have to be careful with it when using iOS, but I got it running and it seems like a decent solution to my question for now. It sounds like it might be good for keeping track of game objects and doing queries on them as well...

    Thank you to everyone who came out, and thanks especially to the Amiable guys and Benedict for presenting and talking! Keep an ear and an eye out for updates about the next meeting, probably either in April or May.

    It might be a bit late to say this but I'll be there (hopefully on time) and as a game dev / Unity N00B I'd definitely appreciate some open Q&A time. I'm trying to determine which of my questions are actually specific to Unity versus game dev in general but I definitely have a lot of questions either way...

    Strike that, reverse it. I'll be there, though I may be a little late...

    I was hoping to make this one (especially as I am currently 100% indie whether I was ready for it or not) but I won't be around Saturday afternoon. Bah...

    This is pretty convenient, it's near my place. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone is up to.

    Damn, scheduled to work an all day event on the 8th. Won't be able to attend. Looking forward to the next group as they have been beneficial.
