Tech@NYU GameDays - Why you shouldn’t be using frameworks, with Ivan Safrin

Ivan Safrin is an interactive artist and game developer, known for several games including Space Cruiser and BitWorld. Until recently, he was the sole developer of Polycode, a framework for developing cross-platform games and writing creative code.

In today’s golden age of accessible game development, a seemingly countless array of easy to use game development frameworks are making it easier than ever to make your own games. Ivan is here to show you why you shouldn't be using any of them.

Doors open at 4:45 PM, pizza for all!

    I will not be able to attend. Is there any way a beginner could attend another session like this on a Saturday??? work evenings.

      Check out some of the other meetups out there, like NYC Games Forum! You're bound to find some group with Saturday events.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
