LUUG 27 - The One With a Bigger Venue

Hi everyone,

Good news! Mind Candy have kindly offered to host us again this month, meaning we have a bigger venue than previous months and more people (180) can attend. 

The plan for this month is to have one main talk followed by open mics. If you're interested in taking an open mic slot, please let us know by commenting on this meetup event in advance. We'll try to schedule the evening so as many people as possible get to show their projects.

Our main talk will be by Mark and Scott from Mind Candy. They have created a series of one hour hands-on training sessions to teach 2D game creation in Unity. They will talk about how and why the training was created and give a quick 30 minute taster session. Afterwards, all of the courses will be available for free online for anyone to use.

At 9pm we will be heading to the pub as per usual! As per previous Mind Candy hosted events, we'll be going to The Windmill (27 Tabernacle St, EC2A 4DE).


See you in two weeks!

Cat

      Also, my mic spot may be taken up by @darrenlloydgent as he has worked on Yaargh! too - hope it goes well if he does do it!

    Once again something comes up :( Arghhhhh. Have a great meetup guys! You should look into recording these meetups. 1043 unitiers and counting :P

    February 20, 2014

  • Dom C.

    Frustratingly, I'm not going to make it either after all since, like Chris Shead, I've got some horrible illness you lot probably don't want. :-(

    Still, hopefully that means someone else gets to go and maybe even frees up an open mic slot.

    Any chance of knowing how long the waiting list is? Been on the waiting list for a week now and it would be absolutely amazing to attend :)

    Hello everyone!

    February 19, 2014

  • Adam B.

    Change of plans... Can't make it. :-/

    February 19, 2014

  • Mark B.

    Hey folks, we're only a couple of day away now - just a couple of notes for you. Please give up your spot if you can't make it - ideally by end of Weds so people can plan to attend on Thurs evening. The event will start from 7pm but the office will be open to people from around 6:15pm -- please don't arrive much before then as we won't be ready for you.

    We'll have someone on the door to sign you in and the office entrance is on Bonhill Street, nearest tubes are Old St / Moorage / Liverpool St / Shoreditch High St. We have a balcony for smokers so once you're in, you can stay in until we head off to the pub around 9pm!

    Open-mic folks - we should have a full range of AV inputs (Mini display port, HDMI, VGA, iOS video output) but please yell if you have any special requirements.

    Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday!

  • Bill L.

    Sadly no longer able to attend, have given up my spot :)

    February 17, 2014

  • Dom C.

    I'd like to do a brief open mic slot about King Machine and some of the Unity-related issues that have come up during implementation. (This would be subject to me actually attending, though - the slots booked up so fast I'm 11 down the reserve list!)

    February 6, 2014

    • Dom C.

      OK, I do now have a slot, so will be able to attend. :-)

      February 17, 2014

  • Dom C.

    So, looks like I do get to come after all, thanks! :-)

    February 17, 2014

  • Lindsay C.

    Unfortunately I am double booked for that night so will have to give up my position, have fun!

    Damn shame Sophie, but here's the up-side... I got your spot! wohooo :)
    Hey - good luck with the UKIE talk, break a leg ( not literally )

    February 14, 2014

  • Sophie R.

    GAH just had to relinquish my tickets as I'll be speaking at this UKIE thing: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/how-to-select-your-platform-sponsored-by-gamesparks-tickets-9441233985

    I'm both terrified and now very sad about missing another LUUG :<

    Hi Unity-ers,
    Has anyone got a +1 they aren't using?

    February 11, 2014

    • Hasan Azizul H.

      Yep, my mate decided not to go.. released the guest position..

      February 11, 2014

  • Ann W.

    Just cancelled for myself + 1 and hope the lucky ones who get the free spaces have a great time!

    February 10, 2014

  • Rob S.

    Hi, would it be possible to get an open mic spot? I've been working recently with the Skillz gaming platform. Skillz is a cash gaming platform for iOS with full Unity integration. It would be great if I could give a quick demo of how Skillz can turn almost any game into a multiplayer experience, with the added bonus of playing for cash if your fancy putting some money on the table :)

    February 7, 2014

  • Giancarlo A.

    I can't make it anymore, happy to free my place.
    Enjoy.

    February 7, 2014

  • Hayden G.

    Hello, i have only just seen this and all of the spaces are taken. I am creating a 2D platform game using unity for my final year project and was wondering where i could access these hands-on training sessions - if at all? Many thanks, Hayden

    February 6, 2014

    • Kevin N.

      If you haven't already done so, I suggest reserving your place. There may be a fair few cancellations, especially a night or two before the event.

      February 6, 2014

    • Hayden G.

      Thanks, i reserved a place before i wrote this message, but the waiting list has 50 people so im not sure ill get so lucky :P fingers crossed.

      February 7, 2014

  • Alex

    Can't wait to hear what you guys are working on!

    February 7, 2014

  • jon r.

    I'd like an open mic slot to talk about my view framework toolkit if possible!

    February 6, 2014

  • Mark B.

    As we still have a LOT of demand for places, I'd suggest those with +1s make sure they are definitely going to use them. Also if you can't make it please cancel ASAP to allow someone else to attend.

    February 6, 2014

  • Kevin N.

    Could I have an open mic slot please? I'd like to talk about my new game on iOS and soon Android, Moon Boing.

    • Ryan F.

      Hi Anna! I see you're looking for collaborators for a project you're working on - please have a chat with myself and/or Darrenlloyd about it, as we may be able to push a lot of enthusiastic students your way!

    Hey, I'd like to do an open-mic slot/mini talk.
