1:35pm - Meeting starts
1.) Tracy's absolute introduction to coding. Tracy will be doing a presentation on an absolute introduction to programming. If you're curious to find out more about the world of programming, but have been intimidated, or unsure where to even begin, this presentation is not to be missed.
Tracy has said that the presentation will focus more on the logic than on language-specific syntax, but if you want to get the most out of the lesson, I would recommend having Microsoft Visual Studio downloaded on your machine. Tracy is a big promoter of that development environment, and the C# language. C# is a pretty great language to learn, in my opinion. Unity also uses Visual Studio and C#, so these are great skills to have
2.) Alvino's animation presentation. Alvino will be doing a presentation on animating models.
3.) Round-table. If new members are present, we'll go around the table, introducing ourselves and giving a little background on our interests and experience. If not, we'll skip the intros and dive right into what we've each been up to, and what we plan to be up to for the next month. This is the time for impromptu presentations on personal or group projects.
4.) Group-Planning. People may volunteer to do a presentation for the next-month's meeting. We may suggest or discuss any possible events or activities for the group.
4.) Open discussion (Want to 'network' or collaborate on a project? It doesn't hurt to ask. In all honesty though, this can be a challenge because A. Most folks are pretty occupied with their own lives to commit to a large project. - and B. Everyone thinks that their own idea is the most interesting one to work on. Still, go for broke and ask someone to the dance, so to speak. Occasionally I do meet members who are looking to contribute to something cool, but they're not quite sure what. This is who you're looking for.
Game developer of virtual worlds and filmmaker. Learning and promoting Unreal Engine 4.
