    Thanks to everyone who attended my talk on Designing Mobile Games for Success. Here's the slides for those who couldn't keep up on notes! http://www.slideshare.net/mzo23/designing-mobile-games-for-success

    Wish the ppt conversion went better though.

    Feel free to hit me up with anything you wished you had seen in it or anything that didn't make sense or if it's a talk you'd like done again somewhere else.

    Great event, thanks Intel, Hacker Lab and IGDA!

      Thanks, Devin. The talk was very helpful. Now to shoehorn some bears and lumberjacks into my next project!

    This was a great event. It was great to hear from people in the local game development community and also the Intel guys. And now I know some of my apps work on Intel-based Android devices. Probably the best part was meeting and talking with cool people.

      Oops - I forgot to give a big thank you to everyone who put this together!

    I thought there was a lot of great information shared about mobile development. Really got a lot out of Devin's and Joseph's presentations. Would have liked the Project Anarchy workshop to be either longer or less info. Felt too rushed and would like to see a 3-4 hour standalone class devoted to better learning the tools. All in all, very good event. Thanks for putting it together!

    A little information on what is actually done would be great. Not sure if I want to go when I don't know if I am just sitting and listening or interacting or what.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
