The second W3C Games CG meetup this year (after the first one about Hyperledger's MESIG gaming subgroup) was held online on Tuesday, June 27th 2023 - Björn Ritzl was giving a talk about Defold, and then all participants were discussing the future of the group itself.
After half a year of no activity we got back with the W3C Games CG meetup last week on April 18th, this time with Sandy Aggarwal talking about Hyperledger's MESIG gaming subgroup. It was also the very first W3C Games meetup with me as co-chair.
I'm excited to announce that I was accepted as a co-chair into the W3C Games Community Group, joining Tom Greenaway from Google and Noël Meudec from Meta, with the support of François Daoust from W3C.
Beside being busy with the js13kGames competition as usual every August since 2012, we also celebrated the 500th issue of the Gamedev.js Weekly newsletter - the first one was sent at the beginning of January 2014.
With no surprise at all, during July the js13kGames preparations took over the entire month.
It's been five hundred weeks, or 3500 days since the beginning of January 2014 when I started publishing the Gamedev.js Weekly newsletter. Time flies so fast!
