First Vancouver Indie Game Developer Meetup was a big success!

A fellow Vancouverite, Alex Vostrov, and I recently set up a Vancouver Indie Game Developer Meetup group, and last night we had our first meetup at Soho Cafe and Billiards in Yaletown.

Clearly there was a big demand for such as group because we now have over 60 members and last night over 40 of them turned up at the meetup! There was a diverse group of people there ranging from students to industry pros, covering disciplines such as art, music, and programming/design on platforms such as iphone, console and Facebook, to name but a few.

At the meetup we asked people what they would like to get out of the meetup group and what sort of future events they’d be interested in and we’ve got some cool ideas that we’ll be implementing soon. I also talked to some really interesting people and met the other three Indies who will be on the same panel as me next week at Digitial Kung Fu 2 day. I also met a fellow BlitzMax user which was great as that’s a pretty rare event 🙂

Big thanks to everyone who turned up. Keep an eye out for the next meetup which will be in less than a month’s time.
