Braamfontein Student Community Meet-Up - 20 June 2017

It's time for another Student Meet Up, and everyone is welcome! We apologise for the temporary study break hiatus last month, but we are back with a cool lineup of talks, and end-of-semester games to play test, so come through! We have something for everyone this month (except maybe the musicians - watch this space though). For the programmers, we have @VQZX talking about programmable objects. We also have @PartyPanda giving us about women in games. And finally we have an intro to pixel art talk by @Sean_Goncalves

IMPORTANT: We will not be at the DIZ this month. Please see below for our new location, and directions.

While these meets are aimed at including the Johannesburg student developer community, the greater dev community are certainly not excluded. All are welcome!

WHEN: 20 June, 17:30 - 21:00
WHERE: Digital Arts Building, Wits University
DIRECTIONS: Parking for visitors will be available right outside the building, after entering the university on Station Road

We cannot stress enough the importance of playtesting your game as part of the development process, so please bring games, prototypes, or just *things* for other people to test and give you feedback on. Also, it doesn't hurt to come prepared with a few questionnaires for people to fill out after testing your game. It's best to have questions specific to your games but here are a few example sheets which you can download and print out if you don't have time to make your own.
Try this, this, or this

If you would like to attend, or if you have a talk you'd like to present at either this, or future meetups, please comment below or on our Facebook event
