What we're about

Welcome to the Tampa Games Developer Guild.

The purpose of this group is to inspire and assist members with creation of video games for any platform, as well as any board or dice game ideas they might have.

Meetings are informal, fast paced, and fun.

"Technical meetings" will provide "how to" knowledge, dealing with design, development, publishing, various tools and marketing aspects.

"Open lab" days where members are encouraged to hang out, co-work, and play board games at their leisure on various days.

"Board game nights" will not allow computers. Attendees will be encouraged to bring their favorite board games and play them for 'inspiration and ideas' for their next targets.

Members publishing an app are enouraged to show it off.

Vendors who want to provide prizes or sponsor specific events are welcome.

As the group grows so will the leadership team. Talk to us if you have ideas.

Please join our discord channel. (https://discord.gg/7NwnY5g)

Online event

Hey everyone! We're trying an experiment this time - instead of Google Meet, we're going to try using a voice channel in our community Discord. If you haven't already, join our community here: https://discord.gg/Hz6ZX6ZrPw. We'll be in the Game Project Therapy channel at 4!

This is an informal networking event open to new and veteran game developers from any background!

Bring your projects and let's discuss best practices, share recommended plugins, code walkthroughs, debug your code, and brainstorm awesome game ideas.

This is an informal meetup to get to know other game developers in the area and support each other's aspirations of creating the next big hit.
