OTHER EDUCATION RELATED NEWS

Also some other really fantastic news related to education is that we are now setup as a community based school at skillshare.com, click here to check it out! What does this mean? It means we can get more exposure for our awesome community, meaning allowing us to have more opportunities to really expand the idea of community based education. We have lots of awesome classes related to Unity, game design and more flash stuff coming in September so stay tuned! If you want to start giving back to the community and become a "teacher" contact me so we can get you setup :-D CLICK HERE TO SEE SCHOOL!

 

SAC GAME HUB

So we are trying to make the meetup something bigger then just another meetup... We are trying to turn it into something that really allows for our community to grow and be exposed to more exciting opportunities and events. So to do this the first step is to make us seem a bit more official... So id like to introduce the Sac Game Hub! We have been hard at work on making a website that will soon act as the "hub" for all things game development here in Sacramento. Don't worry the Meetup is not going away, we just want to have a more official face so when we try to out reach to sponsors and other big players we can point them in the right direction.

Also we will be used as an awesome jumping off point for all the events we plan on doing, and it will be way more organized then the meetup page. The site is still a work in progress, and we are looking for any feedback on the name or what should be on the site! CLICK HERE!

 

IGDA SACRAMENTO CHAPTER

Things are still moving along with this, but we still need 5 more IGDA members for it to really all work. Please if you are interested in getting a chapter going become an IGDA member, contact me or Jacqulyn MacHardy to see how you can help! Go to http://www.igda.org/ for more information!

 

Well that's all folks! Lots of cool stuff on the way, make sure to tell your fellow developers about all the cool stuff happening here in Sacramento and to check out the game jams!
