Join our Niner Engage (it helps us a lot) and get involved in our events!
Traditionally, we've done in-person meetings with this time given to help provide a open space to collaborate with other talented game developers from diverse backgrounds and skills like graphic design, game design, programming, psychology, creative writing, programming, and many other unique skills.
Recently we have started doing Kahoots during meetings, usually on game trivia. Certain facts about games sparks game design discussions. We have also started experimenting with Gartic Phone for fun.
In response to the pandemic:
We are encouraging open collaboration in our discord voice and text channels. Feel free to jump into a text or voice channel at anytime. In addition, we will be hosting a Dev & Chat stream on Twitch on a weekly basis. Please check the schedule there, give us a follow, and come join us in chat when we are live!
Tutorial / workshop meetings:
Traditionally, we've used this time to give tutorials or talks about game development with conference style "lighting talks" or live workshops in person. We encourage anyone who would like to teach a skill create interactive live demo or tutorial with our members at meetings.
In response to the pandemic:
We are encouraging anyone who would like to share knowledge in any game development related skills to host their own workshops and coordinate with officers and moderators to help self-organize symposium talks via discord.
