#TechinMotion (https://twitter.com/Tech_in_Motion) is pleased to announce their newest Silicon Valley meetup: Mobile Gaming- Looking Towards the Future.
Video games as we know it are changing. From large, stationary machines such as the Sega Genesis to small handhelds such as the Nintendo Gameboy Micro, and now on our cellular phones. The evolution of video games has been on the road towards mobile gaming, thus allowing everyone at any age, at any location, at any time to join in. Regardless if you consider yourself to be a casual or hard core gamer, this is one Tech in Motion Event you don’t want to miss. As always, Tech in Motion (http://www.techinmotionevents.com/) will allow for ample time to network and socialize with other tech minded people here in the Silicon Valley! Guests are welcome!!
We'll begin the evening off with a networking session before jumping into the mobile gaming discussion. The panel discussion will focus on how iOS and Android Operating Systems are now in use for more than just phone calls.
Following each speaker's presentation, we will open up the floor for Q & A.
