We were originally about supporting each other while going through the below Coursera paper. It has now evolved into working together with creating games. Going through using Unity (for 2d and 3d). Not to much of a stretch as it uses C# and a similar IDE. It is still best that you watch the videos still, because it is a great resource.
Learn how to programme and develop video games using the C# programming language.
This is a University of Colorado paper delivered online through Coursera. The study is free and you get a "Statement of Accomplishment" at the end if you care about that kind of thing.
We thought it looked like a cool paper but that online courses can be a bit lonely. So why not have a weekly supportive meetup over the 8 weeks with coffee, snacks and maybe a bit of wine and beer. Alan who works here is keen to learn this too and is also a newbie.
So we provide the space, refreshments, big screen, laptops and in-between pep talks. If things get tough we could probably call in some help too.
Read more about the course here:
* The price is in US dollars, but it translates to NZ $15. Meetup won't let us use NZ dollars.
* If your sure you'll come to all meetings it's only $90 all up.
* This won't go ahead unless we have 5 (including Alan).
