August 2014 Meeting Announcement - Cross Platform Game Development in Unity3D and C#

Meeting Topic

Cross Platform Game Development in Unity3D and C#


For many developers the dream of creating a video games is what inspires them to begin their journey into code. They go to college where they learn business oriented languages like C# and Java, they develop a knack for OOP and Line of Business development; their C++ knowledge atrophies, while their .Net knowledge grows and matures. Thanks to Unity3D these line of business developers can return to their original love of game development and bring their C# and .Net knowledge with them. We will be covering the basics of using the free version of Unity3D, while we look at developing our own 2D Game.

Speaker – Jerel Hass

Jerel is a developer and user experience specialist by day; father, husband, and farmer by night. He enjoys bringing the light and joy that is C# to the Escher world of Object-C. He has used C# and Mono to create amazing native experience in both Line of Business applications and Video games. Jerel has a Bachelor and Master degree in Computer Information Systems and lives as far from the city as a decent internet connection will allow.
