This group is aimed at helping people learn and teach each other about the fascinating field of Game Development. Beginners and Experts are both welcome.
We would like to provide a fun and safe place for those new to the field a chance to learn, collaborate and grow in the amazing world of game development. We plan to have meetings, activities, workshops, exhibitions, show-n-tell, outings, parties, etc. centered around building a community of members who love making and playing computer/video games and sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm.
The focus will be on introductory-level activities, but experienced developers and even veterans of the industry are encouraged to join so that we have plenty of opportunities for mentoring and sharing of knowledge. We will share information and teach each other how to use industry standard tools for designing, creating and modifying art, sound and code assets. The group will strive to be a resource for its members to help them become casual or professional game designers/developers or improve their skillset.
Creativity, program management, planning, writing, problem solving, working alone and in groups, voice acting, level design, time management, story, math, physics, art, sound, character development, algorithms, music, coding, engineering, user interfaces and more are all candidates to be examined and put to use as we learn together, on our journey toward creating the ultimate games that we are all dreaming of.
If you know and can demo/teach or would love to learn technologies, tools and skills such as C/C++/C#, Basic or Python coding/scripting, Unity/Unreal game engines, Blender/3DS 3D modeling/animating, Windows/ Android/Consoles/ mobile targets, Photoshop/ Corel/ Gimp drawing/painting, MIDI/ DAW/ Audacity/ Soundforge music composing/sound production, OpenGL/ DirectX graphics/rendering, etc. then this Meetup will be perfect for you and we would love to have you participate!
