Braamfontein Student Community Meet-Up - 15 August 2017

It's time for another Student Meet Up, and everyone is welcome! As is tradition, we apologise for the late notice. Since most of you were on holiday last month, we will try to redo the talks from the last meetup, so that nobody misses out on that super juicy content. So, this month's lineup will re-feature @Salmon doing an introduction to the magic of shaders. We'll also have Tason Mathew doing a crash course on networked multiplayer.

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

WHEN: 18 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
