    I just joined this group and really looking forward to working with people in this group. I saw that there has been a recent meet up and hopefully there will be one in the coming future. I would love to go and learn what ever has to offer!

      Hey Jason thanks. Can you let me know if my emails are getting through? I'm having server issue running on Azure for our multiplayer game. Thanks!

    Great Meeting! I learned a lot and am really looking forward to more of these in the future. Also, I'd love to review Nathalie's slides for passing Windows Store approval if it isn't too much trouble to post them.

    This was a very interesting meeting. The training was great for a beginner like me. Met some very good people all very entrepreneurally minded. My favorite was Nathan the pizza delivery guy who demonstrated the Flappybirds game he built in a day. Worked just like the original. I don't think he will be delivering pizza for much longer with skills like that to offer.

    • Jason F.

      Hi Ana! We look forward to seeing you there. Do you have any questions before Friday?

  • Carlos

    Im a beginner to all this software. Can I still show up if I have windows 7 and no unity or visual studio installed?

    February 24

    • Jason F.

      Hi Carlos - please bring whatever you can and we'll get you up to speed on the rest. If you just want to follow the beginner course, then Windows 7 with Unity installed will be perfect. You can download the free version here - http://unity3d.com/un...­
