I had a chance to visit our friends at SassyTuna a few days ago, and I was really impressed with what I learned. I’ve known them primarily for teaching kids art, but they also have music and game development classes, with up to 120 students attending their various programs, which is HUGE!
Ali, who was kind enough to guide me through their facilities, mentioned that Julie and some of the staff members also create advertisement games for businesses in the province, such as Fogo Island Run.
Really proud to see such a creative and innovative group of folks in our community. Hope we get to see you guys out and about soon!
The Computer Tech Society of NL’s weekly Project Night is tonight if you have some time and want to hang out with other folks while you work on your current project!
Tonight at Bitters on the MUN campus NDev is hosting a talk about containers and performance. Worth checking out if you’re a tech-ish!
With students coming back to town, we’re looking to ramp up our activities to give folks a chance to gather and start building games together in the lead-up to our inaugural game jam. We’d like to invite all devs, artists, musicians, business folks, and sundry into our community. We’d like to develop a program that includes talks, workshop nights, and, of course, preparation for the jam.
If you’re interested, please, drop us a line, reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook, or come find us at our regular meetups at Common Ground on Harvey Road.
PS: We should soon have an announcement about our special event for this month.
