July Full Indie

That's right, Vancouver DOES get a summer, and it's here-- a whole month where it might not rain.  Let's celebrate!

Please note, we'd love to demo your game on one of Ceili's screens, but due to limited availability please email us ahead of time to reserve a spot and to work out connection details.

DON'T BE AN RSVP SQUATTER!

Please don't just sign up to reserve a place and then fail to show up as this is unfair to other members.  We've been seeing a lot of this going on.  If you can't make it remember to change your RSVP so people on the waiting list can go instead.  Thanks for being nice :-)

The meetup will kick off with 3 speakers and then transition into free-form networking.

Schedule:

- Doors open at 6:30pm.
- Speeches start at 7:00pm.
- Networking begins around 7:30pm

Bring your games to the meetup! It's a great place to get feedback so bring along your laptop or mobile device and show off your hard work.

Please try to turn up and grab a name tag before the speeches start at 7pm so that you don't disturb the speakers mid-flow. Many thanks for your consideration!

See you at the meetup!

    I had a great time and made some great contacts, I just realised I RSVP'd too late for next month but hopefully the wait list clears out!

    Nice to see everyone again! Ended up talking to a lot of people I knew already (good fun) but I think I need to say ho to a few more unfamiliar faces next time.

    Hello everyone, looking forward to the meetup tonight!

    If some of you are experienced 2d artists with a good command of lighting techniques looking to work on a ios game, I have two contracts to fill for Puzzle Warriors on iOS, the fantasy puzzle rpg i am working on. The game will need soon a 2d environment artist for maps, and a UI artist for frontend and fantasy inventory items. Come and chat if that sounds interesting, i'll be coming in with a (miniature) chinese dragon.

    If that doesn't sound interesting, come and chat anyways and try the game :)

    See you all shortly, cheers.

  • Tom S.

    I would like to meet other iOS developers to discuss a project for iOS 7. Great stuff @ WWDC, pretty stoked. Also looking to hire compsci student who is good at AI ( board game ).

    • Dobes V.

      Tom are you gonna be there for real? I always see you on the guest list but so far not at the event.

    Any chances of this event getting access to a bigger venu? I notice it always fills to the 150 capacity almost immediately, and the waitlist is always 80 to 150 more people...

    June 21, 2013

    • Yanni F.

      This is often discussed. Please have a look at the comments from the Full Indie MeetUp of December 2012.

      June 22, 2013

    • Dobes V.

      It seems like the wait list usually empties before the event begins. Recently the team upgraded to 150 people limit from 100 though which made a big difference.
