  • Understand the structure and rationale behind the energy code, and know how to navigate it;

TVGS Community, Projects, & Shark Tank
May 24 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Welcome to the community, projects, and shark tank event! Updates from the community are encouraged! Volunteer for events at the TVGS and around the area to be a part of making them a reality for everyone. If you want to be in the know, and get involved, then this is the meeting to attend! If you have a project that you need help with, this is also the time to request any assistance from the community! The TVGS has a goal to help create local games, and there are multiple projects ongoing. Use your skills and help make games! Last month, we held our “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 will be presented. The team will share their results at this meeting, and provide time for feedback and questions. 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. 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: goo.gl/forms/bffPovTE9jG58XLh2

TVGS Community, Projects, & Shark Tank
May 24 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Welcome to the community, projects, and shark tank event! Updates from the community are encouraged! Volunteer for events at the TVGS and around the area to be a part of making them a reality for everyone. If you want to be in the know, and get involved, then this is the meeting to attend! If you have a project that you need help with, this is also the time to request any assistance from the community! The TVGS has a goal to help create local games, and there are multiple projects ongoing. Use your skills and help make games! Last month, we held our “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 will be presented. The team will share their results at this meeting, and provide time for feedback and questions. 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. 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: goo.gl/forms/bffPovTE9jG58XLh2
