UnityPDX Meetup

  • Oregon Story Board
  • We'll have several lightning talks for you on various topics. We'll also be showing off Unity games made during Global Game Jam 2017.

    We'll also be discussing easier ways to network with other local Unity developers and with companies looking for Unity developers. I'd like to make it easy for you to find companies looking for Unity developers if you're looking for work and vice versa.

    If you have a lightning talk you'd like to give (5-10 mins, low pressure talk), let me know! It doesn't have to be a big thing. It could be just some simple workflow solution you've found that really helps you. It could be showing some external tool you've found that's extremely useful to you when working in Unity. Whatever it is, we want to hear it! :)

    See you there!

UnityPDX Meetup w/ Global Game Jam Prep

  • Oregon Story Board

We'll have several lightning talks for you on various topics. We'll also be talking about Global Game Jam 2017 and anything that might help you prep for that. (Even if you're not participating in Global Game Jam, the resources we cover will still be useful to you!)

This month, PIGSquad is hosting the Portland site for Global Game Jam. Unfortunately, tickets for jamming on-site have already sold out. But! You are still welcome to show up for the opening and closing events and jam remotely if you'd like! Literally thousands of Global Game Jam games are made in Unity each year.

We'll also be discussing easier ways to network with other local Unity developers and with companies looking for Unity developers. I'd like to make it easy for you to find companies looking for Unity developers if you're looking for work and vice versa.

See you there! :D

UnityPDX Meetup

  • Oregon Story Board

We want to see what everyone is working on! Whether it's a project you just started and nobody has seen but you, or a game you just made for the PIGSquad Summer Slow Jams, or a published game that's been out for a year. We want to see it!

Sometimes it can be intimidating to get feedback on a project, so what better people to show your project to than a group of artists and developers who truly understand the development cycle of a Unity project? Where you don't have to explain why none of the sounds work, or why that one character seems to walk backwards and turn blue every time you hit a key, or, or, or. :)

Instead of having people show things presentation-style up at the front, we'll have the room set up with tables scattered around the middle, with power strips for you to plug in a laptop. Then people can just walk around at their own pace and look at the various projects people have brought. We'll give everyone 15 to 20 minutes to get set up, starting at 6pm, so no need to come early.

Again, we're not looking for finished, polished projects from everyone. We'd just like to see what people are working on. Maybe there's something you want to get help on? Maybe you're particularly proud of one aspect of your project? Whatever it is, we'd love to see it.

Social VR with High Fidelity + Oculus Touch Demo

  • Oregon Story Board

High Fidelity is building the infrastructure for an open source metaverse, and they're going to be flying into the Portland VR Meetup to give a social VR demo with the Oculus Touch controllers.

High Fidelity was founded by Philip Rosedale, who founded Second Life over 13 years ago. High Fidelity has one of the most viable models for creating an open metaverse, and their demo is definitely worth checking out.

High Fidelity's Jazmin Cano (and potentially their CTO) will be coming to provide some hands-on experience and talk about what its like creating shared virtual spaces. High Fidelity also has some announcements and contests with cash prizes in the works and are going to chat about that too!

 

I wanna talk about what High Fidelity is since many people don't know exactly what our platform is. I want people to get hands on experience and talk about what its like creating shared spaces with others. We have some announcements and contests with cash prizes in the works and would like to chat about that too!
