Tip #3: Minions are a key component of development pipelines.

This is a reminder of the monthly meeting for April taking place this Monday. This month, we will be featuring a presentation by Jeff Saamanen, creator of 4Villains and The Pirates of Haven. Jeff’s presentation, The Importance of a Development Pipeline, will include a discussion of his methods and routine in the process of developing a game from concept to finished product.

We have the pub patio area reserved (which is covered and heated) and a ton of space. There are 3 TVs that we can hookup to and display slides or show off your current projects.  Come relax, talk shop and enjoy the awesome local food and craft-brewed beer.

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