This September we’re heading back to Glasgow! And we won’t be sending you down a back alley into somebody’s loft this time! We’re going for another good night of socialising and getting together.
This month we’re presenting two speakers from in and around Glasgow. We’ll have Daniel Livingstone from the UWS presenting “Kicking Penguins” and a range of other useful little Kinect SDK toys made by former students, as well as how the UWS is working to prepare their students for the real world of Games Development to produce the best and most adequate graduates ever.
Secondly we’ll have new kid on the block Claymore Games, a Glasgow based developer responsible for such titles like Channel 4’s Countdown, Super Solitaire, and the all new Plum Crazy. Brian Hackett will be talking about the company’s transition from Ye Olde J2ME development into the world of cutting edge iOS development. Claymore is a relatively small outfit amongst other more established developers, and anyone interested in finding out what it takes to go from solo starting their own development outfit might just pick up a few tips and hear a few good stories.
As always we’re committed to providing a great space for people to socialise and get together beyond just doing talks. This time we’ve had a crack team of Glasgow experts source us out Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts on Sauchiehall Street. It’s looking to be a great venue with a fully kitted out cinema area and foyer with bar, not too distant from the various transport links in and out of the city. It’s also fully accessible with access from street level and elevators to all of the floors inside.
Make sure to sign up on our Eventbrite page, as space can be a little limited (what can I say? We’re popular!)
