July Meetup in Kingston
Jul 27 @ 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm

It’s a good thing that the A/C in the Senate Garage is top quality because this months Hudson Valley Tech Meetup is HOT! We will be burning up with technical fabulousness both local and global. Please RSVP now to reserve your lightly padded seat. We’re sponsored this month by the innovative and ever-so-helpful team at Justworks. It really does. They’ll explain.  Also, after a super helpful conversation with the New York State Liquor Authority, we’re excited to welcome the return of Awestruck Ciders and Keegan Ales! Together with the help of the NYSLA we have figured out how to give you the opportunity to support our local craft brewers directly at our events by paying a couple bucks for a hand crafted glass of alcoholic awesome. So bring some cash and you can pay the brewers directly after you finish your first round on us. We really love and appreciate our local craft beverage partners and we hope that you do too. Drink local! So, about that meetup, it goes like this: Did you know that the Head of Typography for Adobe Typekit & Adobe Type lives in Kingston?! That’s right, Tim Brown will be in the house my friends. Dan Schutzsmith has been stalking him for way too long and the day has finally arrived! We are stoked and you should be too. We’re not sure exactly what flavor of fresh Tim is gonna drop on us but you can bet it will be well kerned.  Next up we’ll have a product talk and demo from local good wizards, Loud-Hailer. Co-founder and CEO Jack Chen will talk to us about their patent-pending technologies that use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to create mesh networks which enable connected devices to share data ANYWHERE (subway, desert, cruise ship, Mt. Everest, whatever) without accessing the internet. It also supports indoor user positioning, hyper local proximity advertising and some augmented reality stuff that we can’t even discuss legally yet. This is so badass and it is LOCALLY MADE. Sick. Get some. Then just when you thought it couldn’t get any more awesome – just as you felt certain the A/C can’t possibly compensate for this July meetup heat, we introduced speaker number three. AMY HOY!!!! Yes you read that correctly, friends. Amy and her husband Thomas Fuchs, co-founders of Freckle and two of our tech startup heroes (because they ship real software and work really really hard on it) are gonna bootstrap themselves all the way up from Philly just for Hudson Valley Tech Meetup (but probably also to visit with Aaron who just had his second kiddo!).  Amy (more than just an internet business wiseass) will exhort you – yes you! – to A. write a technical book and B. make money from it for C. the good of all. And she’ll tell you how, too. (Hint: it’s nowhere near as horrible as you think.)  That’s a serious tech meetup lineup right there folks. We made it for you and we hope that you feel the love we have for this gorgeous community that is just busting out with stupendous in every direction! We feel really fortunate and excited to be building this with you and the universe. Respect, and thank you.    Oh yeah, and one more thing, we’re debuting our HOUSE BAND this month! Zac Shaw and Joe Maggio have played in many bands together over the years – most notably the duet called Ads where they weave together indie rock rhythms with 1990’s television jingles and freestyle songs for their YouTube subscribers using only iPhone 3GS apps and their sometimes NSFW vocabularies. Zac is also the co-founder of local apocalyptic drum&bass duo Dead Unicorn and the founder of local digital marketing shop, Catskill Digital. So what does a house band look like at a tech meetup? We’re as excited to find out as you are!  If you’d like to come help this month please email hello@hvtech.org We’d particularly appreciate some help setting up chairs around 3PM and dropping a lure module at our Pokestop around 4:30. HV Tech, out.

Project Night: Space Colonizers & Shark Tank 6
Jul 27 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Welcome to the new and improved project night, where we’ll be collaborating on a shared mission: create a game together in one month! Last month, we held our 5th “shark tank” session, where anyone with a game idea was invited to present a five minute pitch. The pitches were then voted on by attendees, and a team of TVGS volunteers have been working together over the intervening month to develop the concept that received the most votes into a working prototype. Now that a full month has elapsed, the progress that was made on the winning project (“Space Colonizers”) will be presented. The team will share their results at this meeting, and provide time for feedback and questions. Based on the strong response to the “shark tank” series, we will be keeping it going as a recurring monthly event. That means participants at this event will again have a chance to pitch a game idea, all for an opportunity to lead a group of TVGS volunteers in a team effort to develop that idea into a functional prototype over the month ahead. As always, everyone is free to join in. However, we do need to limit the total number of pitches for scheduling purposes. Therefore, if you wish to participate in the event, we ask that you please RSVP in advance using the registration form.

Volunteer Coordination Meeting
Jul 30 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Everything we do at Tech Valley Game Space is enabled by our enthusiastic members and volunteers. We are so grateful for your support, and we’re always striving to find new ways to leverage our collective energy to help the Capital Region game dev community thrive. We believe that the key to doing that is empowering all of you to take on a more active role in helping our local game development scene grow and flourish. With that in mind, we want to invite everyone to attend our volunteer coordination meeting. Many of you have been asking how you can get more involved with our group efforts, and this meeting will be a great chance to do just that. The plan is to hang out together at TVGS, eat some snacks, have a good time and discuss ideas for how we can improve our community. We’ll also be performing a communal evaluation of how we organize our current volunteer efforts, and gathering feedback about how we can more effectively translate our ideas into action. We’ll take a look at the existing process for tracking tasks via our Trello board, and discuss opportunities for bringing in new members to help fulfill “officer” roles and guide the future direction of TVGS. We’ve done so many great things together, and there’s no limit to what we can accomplish as long as we remain dedicated to improving. So, let’s get organized!
