A few days ago, on Tuesday October 15th we had our thirteenth Gamedev.js Warsaw meetup, and so a special edition dedicated to js13kGames 2019 was held that day.
I'm lucky enough to be part of the Mozilla Tech Speakers program since the very beginning and it's great to see how it grew over the years, and that there are so many super smart and talented people around the world participating. This year's opportunity to meet some of them in person happened in Amsterdam this past weekend, on September 28-29th 2019.
Remember when I said I'm not gonna travel anywhere near September 13th, because there's just too much work accepting the js13kGames competition entries? Well, I was giving a talk the next day in another city - Bielsko-Biała.
I've travelled to London last week to give a talk about WebXR at the FullStack 2019 conference that happened July 10th-12th in the Business Design Centre.
Last week I had a great opportunity to meet with many folks from various companies at the W3C workshop on Web games which was held in Microsoft's office in Redmond to discuss the future of Web game development.
Another month, another meetup. After the first one this year at Warsaw IT Days 2019 in March, and then Gamedev.js Warsaw #11 in April, we've met again in Codility's office on May 23rd and listen to some top quality talks.
One month after we've teamed up with Warsaw IT Days it was time to organize a meetup on our own. Well, kind of - we had some help from our friends running the meet.js Warsaw meetups.
Another year, another edition of Warsaw IT Days. This time I've gone even further than usual and instead of just giving a talk (or two), I've organized a meetup, participated in a discussion panel and almost led a workshop.
Three weeks ago, on the weekend of January 25th-27th, GameJam.js 2019 had happened - it was hosted at the Warsaw University of Technology another year in a row.
Google Campus in Warsaw was the place I visited a few times recently, and every single time with a slightly different role and approach, although all of them related to game development.
