I wasn't planning much for October, but ended up with a whole lot of online events I've attended and actively participated in over the past month.
After June's meetup about Godot, Coil, and Pixi we've gathered online for the September one to talk about GDevelop with Florian Rival and Clément Pasteau.
August 13th is a special date for me tenth time in a row, since it is the day when the js13kGames competition starts. This year, like previously, we've gathered online at the kick-off meetup.
This time during our bi-monthly W3C Games Community Group meetup that happened June 22nd we had three presentations: Godot's and Pixi's history and future, and an update from Coil about the upcoming Web Monetization Workshop and the Rafiki project.
Another bi-monthly online meetup of the W3C Games Community Group happened a few days ago, on April 15th, and this time two main presentation topics revolved around Unity and WebCodecs.
After gathering at TPAC in October, deciding to do that bi-monthly and having a dedicated meetup in December, we had another W3C Games Community Group online meetup that happened earlier this week, on Tuesday February 9th.
The ongoing pandemic and the end of the Mozilla Tech Speakers program accelerated my shift in focus towards more writing and coding, but this didn't last for too long.
Even though the pandemic is in full swing, there are still some options for online meetups or conferences. And since I gave one talk recently, it would be cool to keep the tradition of posting trip reports afterwards, even though I haven't travelled anywhere.
