We’ve started monthly Gamedev.js meetups in Warsaw – it’s a great opportunity to gather local HTML5 game development community in one place.
Last Wednesday, on January 11th I had the chance to speak at the WarsawJS meetup that moved to a new place – Warsaw Spire. I decided to talk about Wizard Quest as this story is very well received lately.
After selling all 20 tickets for the first workshop in less than 24 hours, it was more than obvious that the second one is going to happen really soon.
There were two cases when I gave two talks in one day, but both were during a single conference – Hungarian Web Conference in Budapest and 4Developers in Warsaw. This time I did two talks at two different venues, although in the same city. I even managed to go for dinner of the first one after the second one ended.
Last month I had the pleasure of visiting Munich, giving a talk to five hundred people and running a workshop about how to build games with Phaser at the JS Kongress conference.
I missed the last meet.js in Warsaw (followed by Kyle Simpson’s workshops) because I was in Berlin for the Tech Speakers meetup and the View Source conference, but I couldn’t miss the next one which happened on November 24th.
It’s not that Gamedev.js workshop #1 was my debut in a role of the workshop lead – I did run one at Mozilla Festival in 2013 and the other at BrazilJS in 2015 – but it was the first one in Poland and at the same time the first one ever organized by me. I wanted to do it for the past few years already, but it’s better late than never.
After the incredible trip to Iceland for the first JSConf there I had a week to prepare myself for the next journey, this time a lot closer – to Berlin.
