This is a reminder of our monthly meeting for November taking place on Monday, November 4th. This month’s feature presenter is Brian MacKay from Race Rocks 3D! Brian will be talking about “An Agile Approach to Life”
“If you’ve worked in software or game development you’re probably familiar with the concept of “Agile Scrum” project management, however what you might not realize is that many of those principles can be applied to other major (or minor!) goals in your life. The focus of this presentation is around looking at ways you can move your projects, goals and ultimately your life forward by embracing change and keeping things simple.”
More details about Brian:
“Brian first started making games at the age of 6 using HyperCard on the Mac Plus, and since then his passion for interactive storytelling has led him through a variety of mediums. With over 10 years experience working as an entrepreneur, brand strategist, game designer, and creative director, Brian specializes in applying his broad spectrum of ﬁnely honed skills to a variety of creative projects. He is currently working as Lead Designer at RaceRocks 3D and has an independent mobile game set for release in 2014.”
Come join us for Brian’s presentation and hang around afterwards to socialize or check out new projects from your peers. We have a private room with a projector and a ton of space.
