Unity Community Meetup in San Francisco
In early April a discussion started about possibly getting some folks from the Unity community together during or just after WWDC. The thread started nicely but then sort of fell off the radar for a bit, but in early May it was given a new breath of life and we pulled it all together and had a great meetup last night (Monday, June 15th). The net result was that we had something like half a dozen people drop by our new San Francisco office around 4pm to hang out for a bit before heading to Mars Bar for an evening of food, drinks and socializing with fellow Unity users. I think that all told we had something close to 20 people stop by over the course of the evening and it seemed that the good times were flowing nicely. The conversations I heard around the table ran the gamut, of course there’s was a lot of game talk and demo giving (laptops and iPhones were out, naturally!), but there was plenty of other chatter as well. All in all I had a fantastic time and I want to thank Paris (that’s both his real name and his forum name) from Secret Lab for kick starting this whole thing back in April (funny that it took a guy from Tasmania to get a San Francisco meetup arranged). I of course want to thank everyone that showed up to make it a fun night, good times people! Let’s do that again.
And now how about some pictures? Real names first, forum handles in parenthesis/quotes, enjoy!
Disclaimer: the names were flying at me fast and furious yesterday and honestly, I just didn’t hold on to enough of them so my apologies for those not or mis-identified in the photos below. Let me know if any corrections are needed!
