This month's featured presenter is:

Scott Drader

Scott co-founded Metalhead Software (http://www.metalheadsoftware.com/), a local game and software development studio, in 2009. Last year he came out to give a "pre-mortem" talk about the game that Metalhead had been putting in long hours to finish, Super Mega Baseball (formerly known as Big Fly Baseball). Now, after the recent release of Super Mega Baseball, Scott is triumphantly returning to give a "mid-mortem" talk, where he will be talking about the stress, exhilaration, and lessons learned in shipping Metalhead's first title.

We have a private room with a projector and a ton of space. Show off your current projects; do some play-testing; or just relax and enjoy the awesome local food and craft-brewed beer.

The meetup will kick off with presentations and then transition into free-form networking.
