Idea: London meetup

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Aug 10, 2013 10:05 am

Edit: I've now set up a Meetup.com event for this! See:
http://www.meetup.com/Scirra-Night/events/134709842/


Hi all,

I've been thinking of putting a small event together as an experiment. It would just be something like heading to a pub in London to have an informal chat and a few drinks. I think it would be a nice change to forums and emails to actually meet in person!

Some ideas if this went ahead: meeting/mixing with other C2 users; us finding out about how people really use C2 and what any common pain points are; sharing our perspective/ideas on anything that interests us; talk about startups/business; just socialise and maybe have a fun night!

I know the majority of you in the community are not based in London, or even the UK! However for in-person meetups we have to consider distance, and we are based in London, so perhaps at least a few of you might be here. So this poll is to gauge interest and see how many people potentially could come. We're also aware that a pub might be unsuitable for some people e.g. for cultural reasons, but in London it's a pretty normal thing to do and is easy to organise so we're going with that for the time being.

Vote above to show your interest and we'll think about if this looks like something we can arrange.

It would depend on the date. If it was a weekend meetup I can easily go. I could go on weekdays, but with my placement it means I'd be stretched for time. :/

That would be awesome, but unfortunately, I'm too far away
I believe you should just organize it anyway and have all UK C2 members that can attend there and post the pictures on the facebook/forums

Might be worth a blog post.Kyatric2013-08-10 10:23:14

I'm too far from London, but the idea I approve. Over a beer or Cup of coffee are often created more ambitious projects than in offices.

@Kyatric,

As I have come to understand you're from the Netherlands as well,
maybe we could try and do something similar in Holland?

I'm in London and working on a fairly big C2 project in my spare time. This sounds like a great idea to me :)

Brilliant idea, but sadly I do think most of us wouldn't be able to attend.

I go to London at least a couple times a year, but I doubt those visits would ever coincide with a meetup event. Still, I'll keep an eye out for the date and see if I get lucky :)

Otherwise, is anybody going to be at GDC/Gamescom? I'll be at Gamescom, so maybe we could arrange something there?

I think I would feel uncomfortable being with people I don't know and are also over 20 years old if not older Sulli2013-08-10 17:40:23
