Idea: London meetup

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Aug 11, 2013 1:58 am

Why not set up another forum page with local chapter heads. People from same areas link in under a chapter (state/region) and set up meets.

Im out of my area but home for me is Florida, id have no problem trying to bring people together for drinks and idea sessions.

Oh another thought, Chapter challenges. One idea is spread to everyone and see which Chapter comes up with the best end result of the idea. Send out trophies (T-Shirt) saying this chapter one what ever event.Kyatric2013-08-11 02:21:54

@chadnon: Please don't post several posts in a row, prefer to use the "Post options"/"Edit post" function like in any other forum.
Thanks.

@Paradox,

A convoy sounds pretty cool, and 2500 miles would get you a long way in the UK.

Did you mention driving over? Now hold on a second, I'm all for helping fellow devs out when I can, but could you imagine the cost of retro fitting a car for aquatic travel? The journey would be amazing though, wouldn't it?

But still, it would be great if some of our international brothers and sisters could join us for a spot of afternoon tea! Then perhaps the meet up could be held in a new place each year (great excuse for a holiday!).   Blacksmith2013-08-11 07:01:02

I like this idea. I'm not sure if I'm able attend. I would need to check budged and how to accommodate myself.

@Paradox,

Now Vegas sounds like a great idea, although I'm not sure my wallet could stand the strain ;)

I think the event would be small for a first run. Even if people would fly over/travel for something more significant, I don't think we can jump in to some kind of convention-size event right away because of the organisational effort involved, and possibly risk (we don't know if this type of event works yet).

Also only 16 yes votes so far, and I guess about half of those would be busy/unavailable for any particular date we pick... so it could be pretty small! Still, got to start somewhere, and maybe we can figure out a way to grow it. Running it during Eurogamer sounds like a good idea too (26-29 sept) and if we arrange something I'll try to put it together with several week's notice so everyone can book themselves.

Not sure a live stream would work for a simple pub meet, since people would just be milling around talking to random people I guess, not much to watch. However if we arranged some demos or talks maybe that would be interesting to others?

Setting up a meetup forum is a nice idea, I'll see if we can put something together.Ashley2013-08-11 11:38:58

@Ashley, sounds good!

We've already booked our tickets for Eurogamer (29th). So would be great if that date works for others too! But if not, we can always make an extra trip :)

I think we would tune in to a stream if it was just a chug cam. (putting people in front of it and making them chug their beer.)

Or maybe like a reality show, a confession cam, where people go off and talk about the other people who came in private. Heh heh.

Indeed, if it is a small event with few people, I guess a stream is overdoing it and probably some photos will be more than enough (and possibly be able to put a face on some avatars, which is always fun imo).

Having the event in "conjunction" with a bigger event like Eurogamer expo sounds like a good idea.
