Gamification is a relatively new term that refers to the use of game design elements in a non-game context to engage people and solve problems. This is a local meetup for anyone in Calgary who's interested in how gamification might work for them. We all use gamification naturally every day even if we don't recognize it as such. Behavior science, motivational theories, and neurophysiology also influence how well gamification works. There is a lot of science underlying gamification but that doesn't mean it's inaccessible to the lay person. Nor does it mean it can't be fun! Quite the opposite in fact. So let's have fun here.
