Are you a new developer in the Philadelphia tech scene? Been around for a while and want to lend your skills and wisdom to those looking to grow? Red Queen meetups will focus on being a welcoming and empowering community of all skill levels, learning new skills, building new projects, and most of all strengthening your professional development career around those aspiring to do the same.
Red Queen (https://redqueen.us) makes it easy to create tools designed for video game players. We work directly with game developers to make their game data accessible to talented toolmakers, who use that data on our development suite to create fun, exciting tools for the player community. Powered by Red Queen’s platform, we provide the resources you need to build powerful tools for the games you love. Create tools like heat maps, battle calculators, stat trackers, and leaderboards. By having total access to gameplay data, toolmakers are limited only by their imaginations.
Red Queen will be teaming up with Guru to bring you talks, workshops, and presentations brought to you by talent from different Philly based companies.
