Just thought id let you all know of what type of gatherings are coming to the meetup very soon!
Community based educational classes
Chatting about games is cool, making them is even cooler! So the logical next step would be learning how to make them. I already have a bunch of fellow game developers ready to go in teaching particular topics related to game dev... We will be doing a test run with all of this in August see how it goes!
If you are passionate and knowledgable about a particular area of game development and want to share what you know back with the community please get in contact with me! I am working with a lot of the other communities in Sacramento to really jumpstart the idea of "Community based education".
Smaller more casual mingling sessions
We will also be trying out this August the idea of more mingling sessions, that are much smaller and way more casual... They will be done in the afternoon and possibly in the evening as well, this is also another test to see how to well they go.
Weekend long game jam
Wanted to do one of these for a long time, and if the Sunday one goes well, it's looking like September maybe the date when it happens! Don't worry though we will have the usual monthly game jam in August as well :-)
I wanted to have this type of gathering actually last month but it kept getting pushed... The idea would be everyone comes and presents to the community the projects they are currently working on. It's still going to happen... Just not sure when yet.
Working with the IGDA
More details about that coming soon!
Friend of mine is looking for a game developer who would like to possibly do some live coding at this event, it's a huge art/music event and they would like some one with a lot of skills to be going nuts on the screen with the music and art. Please contact me if you are interested! http://launchsacramento.com/
That's all for now, let me know if anyone has questions!
