It's that time again folks :-D Thought id share with everyone what's been happening...



Sac Jam 08 Weekend Long Game Jam: The event has been moved to the 22-23 instead of the 15-16... Why? Because he need a bit more time to flush stuff out and try and see if we can get some sponsors for the event, and figure out the best setup for the space. If the date change is inconvenient for any one who has already paid please let me know and i'll refund you monies. But this is the FINAL date and it WILL happen at this time. SIGN UP HERE!

Beer & Geeks: Tap into the tech community: This is an awesome event where you get to mingle with your fellow geeks, exploring not only the game dev scene but the entire tech community in Sacramento. We will be having these every month. RSVP HERE!!!




Programming with Action Script 3.0 OOP Style: If you already understand the basics of action script 3.0 and want to take it one step further then make sure to check out this class! SIGN UP HERE!!!

A Brief Introduction to Blender: Want to learn how to do 3D modeling without having to spend thousands of dollars? Then you should come to this class! SIGN UP HERE!!!


This is a new area for us and so far they have been going pretty well, we hope to really jump on more community based education in the coming months! If you want to get more involved please contact Joseph Burchett!


Sac Jam 07 Results: Although we didn't have as many people like we did in the previous jam this one still turned out REALLY well :-D We have videos of the games made and pictures of the event :-D





Mini-Hackathon: The hacker lab is hosting a mini-hackathon this upcoming Saturday which is essentially like a game jam but for apps instead of games (you can do games to if you like!). SIGN UP HERE!!!

Hacker Lab New Space: For those of you not aware the hacker lab is an awesome co-working space all about building out the awesome startup community here in Sacramento. They are currently in the progress of moving into their new 10,000ft space!!! Great place to work if your a game dev, or just to meet other like minded people. SIGN UP HERE!!!



This is VERY important, if you can not make the event please update your rsvp to NO!!! It's really, really easy to do... Literally just a button press. A lot of people have been saying they come and just don't show up. There is even a free mobile meetup app for both android and iphone, so there really isn't an excuse... Come on people, it's very easy to do! It will help make planning future events a lot easier.



That's all for now guys, this month went a bit slow... But we will be having more engaging gatherings in September, that I promise :-) Lots more cool stuff coming down the pipe, so stay tuned!
