  • This location is shown only to members

Hey Everyone!

Tuesday's line-up is:

MAIN SPEAKER:

Teddy Lipowitz - Cover Shooter

DEMOS:

Jake Slack - PRIVATE EYE

Patrick O'Luanaigh - SkyDIEving

We'll also have the new alien autopsy for Surgeon Simulator 2013 set up to play with the Oculus and Hydras, because it's our office and we can. ;)

If you've RSVP-ed yes, and you can't come along, please can you let us know, so that someone else can take your place.

We won't be ordering big-foodz, but will have some snacks and drinks to nibble and slurp on during the evening. If you need food beforehand and want to know where to grab some, email us and we'll send you a list of places.

Looking forward to seeing you all - old and new faces.

Thank you!

Poppy, Kate & Leo

    oh and it was suggested there may be an interest in a presentation on VR arcades past and present - just ask if interested next time.

      Hey there Kevin. We'd love to have you speak at the next meet-up - would you be interested in being the main speaker for the 30-45 min presentation?

    Great event yesterday and great to meet you all. Really epic demos and some great ideas flying around. Can't wait to see more next time. I think I'm gonna have to try and find myself an Oculus Rift now.

    Hello everyone,
    Was a great time last night, just letting you know that I've done a bit of a write up about it, included some pictures and youtube trailers and links as best as I could.

    Thanks

    Best event ever. I was in VR heaven ;)

      October 16, 2013

    • Poppy B.

      Yep - that's the one!

      October 15, 2013

  • Poppy B.

    Hey everyone! Can anyone bring a Rift or two to the event, so we can make sure that we have enough for demo time, and so people don't have to wait too long? We'll love you forever if you can - our second one hasn't arrived yet. ;____;

    1 · October 11, 2013

    • Poppy B.

      Alan - awesome.. Please do! Have you got the office phone number so we can let you in at half seven just in case no-one is outside to collect you?

      October 15, 2013

    • Alan W.

      Got this one :) Thanks [masked]

    October 15, 2013

    • Poppy B.

      Aww. Get well soon, Alex. That went around our office last week. Thanks for sorting your RSVP. :)

      October 15, 2013

    • Alex P.

      Yep it's a shame, as it was so good last time! Not to worry, I'll catch the next one :)

  • Solomon R.

    Sorry guys, big project to finish for tomorrow. Have fun.

    By the way I am on the lookout for an awesome unity 3d artist type to join our team if there is anyone looking for work tonight?

    October 15, 2013

    • Poppy B.

      Hey there Sol. We'll keep our ears out. Post something on Twitter and we'll retweet it for you. You'll be missed tonight.

      October 15, 2013

    • Solomon R.

    Having missed the first meetup I am really looking forward to this. My Dev kit is currently sat at the other end of the country waiting for me to get time to go and collect it. Interested to see what other people are up to with theirs before I get started :)

    I should be around old street for 5ish if anyone wants to meet up before hand, or can suggest a good place to spend a couple of hours :p

      Due to a switch around at work I wont be in the area until around 6:30 now so will probably be headed straight there.

      October 14, 2013

  • Nikholai K.

    My +1 has pulled out so I've moved to just me. So there should be a free space now :) Also, mind if i turn up at about 6:30?

    October 13, 2013

    • Poppy B.

      That's fine! We'll see you there. :)

      October 14, 2013

  • Tim B.

    Looking forward to this and seeing what people are doing with the rift!
    Getting the last train back to Brum so will try to not have too many drinks :)

    1 · October 11, 2013

  • Poppy B.

    Hey everyone! We already have our main speaker for the night (thanks, Teddy!), but if you'd like to be one of our two Oculus + Game demos (15 minutes chatting, then demo at the end), please let me know. Thanks!

    September 11, 2013

    • Ashley R.

      I'm not sure what I'm going to have. Depending on how this week goes I might have to back out too =/ I'm really sorry! The imminent release of my game is taking all my time.

      October 8, 2013

    • Poppy B.

      Hi Ashley. We have our 3 speakers for this event now. Perhaps when everything is 100% ready with your game, you can bring it to a future meet. :)

      October 8, 2013

  • Patrick O.

    Hi Poppy. I'm very happy to talk about our multiplayer Oculus Rift SkyDIEving demo/game if you'd like, and to show it off - I'd rather not bring a PC and a Rift in to London, but assuming you have this already, I'm happy to do it :)

    1 · October 8, 2013

    • Poppy B.

      Hello Patrick. That would be incredible. We can sort out the PC and Rift for you, so don't worry about that. Can you email me the PC specs that you require, and also any slides + videos that you have for your presentation so we can get everything ready for you. As this is a meet-up for devs, feel free to get as techie as you like in your talk. :) [masked]

      October 8, 2013

  • Poppy B.

    Hello everyone! We're still looking for a second person to do a 15 minute demo at the event. Is anyone going able to do this? Let me know ASAP. Cheers!

    October 8, 2013

  • Nikholai K.

    Totally up for this again! I've put myself down with a +1 but will check asap if the +1 can make it. If not I'll free the space up :)

    September 11, 2013

    • Poppy B.

      Sounds good! Will you be bringing more home-baked goodies? =D

      September 16, 2013

    • Nikholai K.

      I might do, will have to see. If i bring enough cookies can I live in a box at the edge of the office throwing out the odd marketing idea now and again? :P

      September 16, 2013

  • Poppy B.

    Also - we're toying with the idea of people bringing a crisp, fresh £5 and people ordering pizza in the break. It's not definite - just an idea. Thoughts?
