Games NI virtual meetup on July 15th to look at rapid game prototyping

  • Games NI is running a virtual games industry meetup next week, showing new job opportunities in the games industry and exploring the use of rapid prototyping in game development.

    Prototyping is a vital part of the R&D process in the tech sector, and the games industry is no different. Anyone can have a good idea for a game, but developing a prototype helps to figure out whether the idea is feasible and if it's as fun in reality as it can be in your head. A good prototyping strategy can help companies get a handle on the scope of the project and quickly figure out whether it's worth continuing.

    That's the topic for next week's Games NI virtual meetup, which is set to take place on July 15th from 6PM to 9PM over video conferencing service Zoom. The event will explore recent NI games industry news, highlight job opportunities in the local games industry, and provide a way for people to get in touch with likeminded developers.

    The event will feature short 10-minute talks from several local developers on rapid prototyping and the "fail fast" methodology or their experiences with prototyping, after which there'll be a short Q&A session for attendees. The event will then end with a general chat and networking session to help anyone interested in game development to make contacts in the local industry.

    The event is free and open to the general public, but there are only 100 spots available so head over to eventbrite to grab a ticket and reserve your spot. Anyone in the local game development industry is encouraged to attend, as well as any students interested in game development, and anyone in the tech sector with an interest in game development.
