User Monthly Meetup: Lightning Talks

  • April 9, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

OK, all you West Side people (I used to be one), now it's time to spread some love to the other parts of town.  It's a lot easier to get to Pasadena by 7:30 then it is to Santa Monica from the other parts of town.  :)

In case you didn't know Idealab is one of the Grand Daddy's of Incubators.  It was started in 1996 by Bill Gross and is still going strong.  We picked the location to not only to spread things around a little (it's been a while since it was in Pasadena) but also because it's only three blocks from the Metro station if you want to take the train.  It's also in Old Town Pasadena so good for drinks after.

We have several people who are signed up to give lighting talks and there is still some room if someone wants to give one.  All you need for a lighting talk is a PPT, Keynote or Google set of slides and a PDF backup copy on a thumb drive (not sure what the internet situation will be).

I've added 2 more today but if you are interested in presenting, just let me know, it's only 5 minutes.

We also have a special guests coming.  Bahaa AbuNojaim from Mixed Dimensions will be demonstrating some of their plugins from the Asset Store and giving away copies of GameDraw to all in attendance.

Parking is at the City Garages or on the Street.

Thanks,

Grant

    It was great everyone could make it out to Pasadena. For those who missed it it was a great show by several of our own group speaking on topics from Animation to OUYA, Memory Management to Social Networking.

    What is the room setup going to be like? Projector or big screen TV?

    Will need to adjust fonts and screen shots to compensate depending on which it is.

    What kind of connection to output device will we have? VGA? HDMI? DVI? RCA?

    Will we be able to video our talk? I'll bring a little camera and tripod just in case. Software Development: http://otakunozoku.com

      We will have a projector with at least VGA (confirming on DVI, Mini Display Port). Video taping is fine as long as everyone in the room is good with it.

    Does anyone know of Unity game developers interested in teaching?

    • Cherubini

      maybe, what is the time commitment?

      April 3, 2013

    • Justin L.

      I can do either teaching or corporate training. Prices differ vastly between the two. Let me know what you need. You can reach me at [masked]

    I remember sending in the list of topics I can talk on, not sure if I am on the list to give a talk though. Maybe I should just form my own Unity 3D lightning talks meetup. With blackjack. And hookers! In fact, forget about the talks... :)

    April 2, 2013

    • Ricky H.

      ok, i'm in

    April 6, 2013

  • Ricky H.

    I'm still confused, where is this hosted? Is this an online meetup?

    April 4, 2013

  • David B.

    Looking forward to learning and sharing knowledge. See you there!

    April 3, 2013

    April 3, 2013

  • Brad N.

    I have a talked slotted but possibly too many things to cover in 5 min. Here are some possible topics, if people have preference for a particular topic let me know:

    1. Custom export and import pipeline for forcing a 1:1 relationship between Maya materials/textures and imported Unity FBX materials/textures.

    2. Best practices for prefab creation, updating and linking to components to prevent broken links.

    3. Streamlining asset creation for rapid iteration of textures.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
