Description

This Event Has Been Cancelled.


Basic Computer Games!

The goal for this event is to use JavaScript, Swift, Python, Java, or any other of your favorite languages to implement simple games provided to you LIVE at the event, so you can gain practice using code to solve problems! You can code your game for the web, for iPhone or Android, or even for the console!

Come join us in a fun, safe environment great for learning.

You may implement the games by yourself or as part of a team. The choice is yours!

There are no prizes and the points don't matter.

This meetup is perfect for devs who are current bootcamp students, recent bootcamp grads, or more experienced devs who want to try to implement simple games without external game/physics engines, just code you write yourself!

AGENDA:

6:30 pm - Introductions, form groups, Show specs for tonight's game.

6:40 pm Start coding! Also, food!

8:10 pm - Begin wrap-up

8:30 pm One or two teams volunteer to give a short talks about their solution to the game (or proposed solution if not finished)

~8:50pm Everyone goes home happy! (Optional : finish your game and post it to your Github account.)


IMPORTANT: We want this to be a low stress environment where you get to exercise your coding muscles and try new things. This is NOT a hackathon. If you don't finish, don't worry! Try to learn (or teach!) something new from your fellow attendees, and tackle the problem on your own schedule, and add it to your programming portfolio.

Past participants have even use this event as an excuse to get their feet wet learning a new framework!


About our Meetups:

We welcome people of all coding skill levels. We want you to learn and practice Javascript and/or iOS and to have fun while working on a solving a new problem. We'll usually have both an easier game and a more advanced game for you to implement.

If coding in JS, we recommend implementing each game using something like CodePen or JSBin to spend less time doing setup and more time coding!


Be sure to bring a friend or two to form your own group, or make new friends at the event!


Our Golden Rules:

1) Please ask for help if you need it, and

2) Please be generous with your time if someone asks for your assistance!


BRING:

• An ID to show security

• Your laptop & power cord

• Your creativity & enthusiasm
