Just wanted to say how excited I am that so many people have signed up for Saturdays meeting! Sorry I had to cap it at 50 but I didn't want the room to over flow... We will be having a presentation by one of our members about how to get into the game industry then spend the rest of the time mingling.
The next meetup will be holding our fourth Sac Jam (Game Jam) at the 5th Planet Games office in Roseville. If you are serious about making games and have a laptop make sure to sign up! http://www.meetup.com/gamedeveloper/events/57480892/
Also one of our newest members; Gina Lujan, is the host of the HackerLab meetup http://www.meetup.com/HackerLab/ If anyone is interested in mingling with other entrepreneurs in Sacramento she is hosting a "founder dating" meeting as well as a "hackathon" very soon!
Also there is a big Unity sponsored meetup planned for May, the details for that are coming very soon!
Hope to see you all at the next meetup!
The purpose of the IGDA Sacramento Game Developers Meetup is pretty simple, to allow developers or people striving to become developers in the game industry to have a place where they can come together and communicate with each other. Share ideas, form friendships and to learn ways to get into the Video Game Industry. Perhaps even form or join in on a game project with other members.
So, if you love playing video games, learning about how to make them, then this is definitely the place for you!
We have experienced professionals currently in the industry who are making Web, PC, Mobile, Console and Board games! These professionals include Game Designers, Programmers, Web Developers, Indie Game Studio Start-up Founders, & more! All are welcome!
We can help you get started! So what are you waiting for, join in on the fun! PEW PEW!
