After a well deserved hibernation season, Up.front is finally back for a row of exciting meetups in 2017: Every 2nd Tuesday at Co.Up, the co.working space of our choice.
To set the bar for an amazing year to come, we’re very excited to announce our 72nd meetup with a great lineup of three speakers, willing to share with us what they know, how they came to wrap their head around it and maybe even what they haven’t figured out yet. Let’s listen, put our heads together and discuss frontend, game design and more.
Yoshua Wuyts Getting Started With Choo
Yosh is a creative engineer who loves all things computer, but loves hanging out even more. Current obsession is Rust and distributed systems, but he tends to do JS from time to time too.
Allan Cudicio What the Heck is Game Design?
Most people have at least vague idea of what a UI or industrial designer do... but game designers? What the heck do they do? Even other designers struggle with this. In his talk Allan will explain what these designers do and how they are contributing to the current tech & media landscape.
Allan Cudicio is Game Designer at King. Previously involved in the business side of software development, he has now switched to full time design of mobile games.
Up.front is a free event, and you do not have to register anywhere. However it gets packed sometimes. Doors open at 7:30pm, talks start at 8:00pm. Arrive on time to make sure you get a seat! After the talks there’s time for conversations with tasty drinks or snacks at Kremanski, a cosy coffeeshop and bistro just around the corner from our venue.
We always need volunteers who help us to prepare the venue (and build it back after the meetups). This takes ca. 15 minutes and is fun – arrive at 7pm if you want to help us.
Accessibility: If you would like to use the elevator, please tweet @upfront_ug when you arrive.
