1T - First Thursday technology meetup.
A few tech guys in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada have been holding a 1T - First Thursday technology meetup. If you are in the area, and into technology, please join! It's held the first Thursday of each month at Rudder's.
Today, I was the guest speaker!
We're hosting a Q&A with Matthew Doucette from Xona Games, an award-winning indie games studio. XONA Games is best known for their retro shoot 'em up games that have become best sellers in Japan.
I hope everyone enjoyed, rather than be bored by, my speech! Without getting into the details, I showcased the history of Xona Games and where we are heading, which is games on next-gen consoles! More to come soon!
That is all!
