Here is the meetup tomorrow I spoke of! Come and earn 1% extra credit.
Come to the nexUX Meetup!
With Mike Capps, strategic advisor to the entertainment industry
A fireside chat with the semi-retired games industry executive
In this fireside chat, we'll all have the chance to ask a prominent figure in the gaming industry questions about his experience, his methods, and anything else you could want to know. Please send us your questions in advance, or bring them to the event!
After a decade running Epic Games, Mike Capps now serves as a strategic advisor for a few interesting and quite varied companies such as Unity, Sphero, and Remedy Entertainment. He also takes on occasional lecturing engagements on topics ranging from leading creative teams to business productivity. He enjoys working with teams that help him learn, are made up of kind people, and have a mission that will make a positive impact upon society.
As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX and entertainment. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.
RSVP and send your questions in advance using the buttons below.
Also, please forward this email to whomever you think might be interested!
Friday, November 13, 300pm
nexUX Meetups take place in the James B. Hunt Library on NCSU's Centennial Campus. Events will be held in the Duke Energy Hall of Hunt Library, with a few exceptions.
James B. Hunt Jr. Library
1070 Partners Way
Raleigh, NC 27606
Directly outside the front doors of the Hunt Library (on Partners Way) is an hourly lot. There is a mechanical arm at the entrance to this lot. You can pay by the hour at $2.00/ hour to park here. Just be prepared, as this lot only accepts credit cards (no cash).
Once parked, you will be entering the Hunt Library on the ground floor. The Duke Energy Room is up the yellow stairs and on your left.
NCSU Wolfline buses also service the Hunt Library on several routes. See the full system map (PDF) or the real-time bus tracking map.
