  • April 23, 2013 · 5:00 PM

Schedule:

17:00-17:30: Mingling, food and drinks
Kindly sponsored by Acando


17:30-18:15: Jerome Lacoste (WeWantToKnow)
With 15 years of experience as software engineer, 10 of them as a freelancer, Jerome is now co-founder and CTO at WeWantToKnow. WeWantToKnow is a Norwegian-French startup based in Oslo, Norway and Paris, France, and aim to revolutionize learning. WeWantToKnow are the proud makers of DragonBox Algebra, the multi-award winning app that teaches your kids... algebra!

With 1.5 years experience with Unity and the gaming
industry in general, Jerome will talk about his experience using Unity
in the eye of a non-gaming developer, in particular touching topics
like:

  • Multi-platform support: how to achieve it
  • Build automation for mobile apps
  • 2D development with Unity
  • Experiences from the life of a startup company

The above might be adapted a bit depending on the other speaker's
content and user requests. Please send email to
[masked] if you have specific topics or questions that you would like to be adressed during the talk.

18:15-19:00: Ole Andreas Jordet (Krillbite) - Krillbite, Unity & Kickstarter

Krillbite Studio have existed for only 2 short years. During the development of our bigger upcoming title, Among the Sleep, we have managed to acquire some knowledge regarding being a indie game start-up in Norway, using Unity for bigger game titles and preparing a Kickstarter campaign. These are the main topics I'll talk about.

Ole Andreas is the producer at Krillbite Studio, but also functions as a programmer on this small team of 11 people. With his tech background in server virtualization and technical support he very much enjoys his current position as it involves both technical aspect as well as interacting with fellow humans.

    I forgot to add this in the mail I just sent:
    Paal Joachim took the pizza leftovers with him so that he could give them to people that need them more than us in the streets of Oslo. Thanks Paal Joachim, and big kudos!

    Interesting meetup, good people. By the way, if anyone out there are game designers/graphics designers, I would be interested in discussing some work to brush up some of my existing Android games. The games have been downloaded for a total of ~3 million times, so there is a good potential there... Search for
    "DKIT Android" in Google Play Store...
