This Meetup was canceled.
5:30 - 6:00 Meet/Greet, Install Software
6:00 - 8:00 Project Spark presentation
Project Spark is an ambitious new game creation platform for Xbox One, and Windows 8. Today you can use an immersive editing and testing experience to build games that are available to other owners of Project Spark on all three platforms.
Project Spark is a completely visual development tool, so it's not expecting you to know any programming language or have any current development skills. It is GREAT for kids and families to work together and share together.
And Project Spark is free to get started.
The long term vision for Project Spark is to include a marketplace for buying and selling assets and game worlds along with multiplayer support.
If you have Windows 8 on a laptop or tablet, feel free to install the Project Spark app from the Windows Store to play around and follow along.
If you have kids with an Xbox One or a Windows 8 laptop, this is definitely one to bring them along to.
