FAQ

Q. What if I don't have my slide yet?

A. We will take people with a slide first who registered on eventbrite, followed by those who registered on eventbrite with no slide, followed by those who have no slide and just rsvped on the meetup

Q. Will you do this again, possibly in Mountain View also?

A. Yes we plan to, especially if a good portion of the people who have indicated show up for this one in SF and yes we want one in Mountain view also which is harder to get hosts for, especially those who will help with refreshments, but we may have some bites on Mountain View venue and also if you know of some who are willing to provide refreshments let us know. We love you but don't wish to be stuck with a refreshment bill when running a free event on our free time.

Q. What happens if someone steals my idea?

A. How will you find a team member if you don't share?

Q. Can we have NDA's at the event?

A. There will be no NDA shenanigans. This is a free event and the organizers don't wish to spend their own free time as NDA police. Plus excecution and alliances and funding are as large a part of success as a good idea.

Q. What happens if I form a team at the event and things don't turn out or there's a dispute?

A. We are not attorney’s, please consult your legal counsel for legal questions.

Q. Location is a bit of of walking distance to Bart

A. It's still walkable however in SF Uber and Lyft usually work pretty awesomely for short trips. Hey running a startup is not for those not willing to put effort ;)

Q.Shoud I relax, network, meet people and have some fun regaurdless of if I find the right team member right away.

A. Yes we highly recommend that, life is short and hey, Zero is kind enough to supply some food and drink refreshements for the evening.

    Hello, I've just applied to present here - Ann or Vera, I see that you requested a jpg of the slide two weeks in advance. Is there any way I can still do this? If so I'll email it along right away!!!
    Thank you

    Looks like it was moved into mid November.

    If you're interested in a PC Space 3d indie project, message me to chat.

    Given that this sadly doesn't seem to be happening. I'm just going to throw my pitch out here…
    I'm looking for a Unity developer who has experience with iPhone. I have a game that requires some patient and creative coding. I can provide all design. Someone that has experience with Facebook/social gaming would be ideal.
    Similar to Mike Tyson's Punch Out but not a boxing game, battling opponents in quick games that involves a totally unique input system that's never been used in mobile before (tested & working in Unity). Players work through many sets of levels but also earn achievements that help battle Facebook friends.
    I'm a game designer/developer. This project's scope is a little larger than I'd prefer for just myself. Thanks for reading and sorry for the spam but honestly SF needs more focused meetups like this one and sad this didn't work out...

    I will need to have an NDA signed for this one if you're ok with that.

    Is this still happening tomorrow ?

    October 6, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      I don't know, but it would seem not, given that no location has been announced a day before it is supposed to happen.

      October 6, 2014

  • Austin J. Q.

    I think people would simply prefer for this to happen all together. Finding a "ideal" location may or may not happen. I think most of us would just settle for a location. With the amount of advance notice we have had most of us would not mind commuting to SF from SV. Lots of available space in SF. SFO also has a conference space that we used this weekend for THack and it was very suitable with plenty of space and demoing functionality.

    Venue hunting has had issues on this particular event - we will try one more time in Aug/Sept, hopefully third time charm will let you know when date is exact (meetup won't let me leave it blank for now)

      Thank you very much and appreciate the offer Augustin. One of the big challenges is actually spaces near Mountain View/Palo Alto/Santa Clara as I am trying to have content for those people sometimes too , and I'd like to alternate with SF. SF is counterintuitively with it's far less space much more open to hosting meetups while Mountain View, Palo Alto, Santa Clara is a real challenge - elance has mentioned it and I can hope they may still be available but since Google remodeled it's been a challenge for space down in SV. Anyway thank you so much for the SF suggestion will follow up.

      Have you tried local high school auditorium? Santa Clara High School and Wilcox High have performing arts theater that they rent out. Also Marianni's restaurant on San Tomas and El Camino. Stanford Park Hotel - super!

    Hey gamers. I am a former General Manager of LA Fitness with 8 years experience in the fitness industry and a degree in Finance/ME. I am building a 3D fitness game with a few game devs/artist and we are looking to expand the team to at least 1 other dev and 2 artist. We have investors lined up but need to produce an MVP first. Please contact me if interested.

    Does it have to be a slide pic or can it be a video of our game in progress?

    Question Ann: I clicked on your link, it says "Which team member are you looking for". How important is this? Can it be changed to a Checkbox scheme instead of radial. (Team Members) Cheers and thanks for hosting,

    What does "NO Company Establishing - this is for finding team members for a current project" mean?

    March 29, 2014

    • A former member
      A former member

      I'm pretty sure it means "Keep the team member search related to 1 project, not filling up a company without staff". It goes along with the same "no recruiters" spiel.

    I'd like to go to this but it's so far out I won't know until we get closer. Who here is using Unity and who is using HTML5?

    On a related note I'm throwing a party May 19th for game Devs, Artists, Designers and QA's. If you would like info please contact me. Free food and wine.
