Queer Code, the meetup for LGBTQ+ people in Scotland with an interest in technology, has announced its next event – and it sounds awesome.
On Tuesday December 1 (19:00-21:00) you can hear from Steven Taarland (co-founder and organiser of the Rainbow Game Jam) and Iain Farrell, both from Double Eleven, which recently launched Minecraft Dungeons in partnership with Mojang.
Of course, releasing any game is challenging, but when it’s a franchise with the weight of expectation and anticipation that Minecraft enjoys, it takes things to a whole new level…
Shipping on Xbox, PS4 and Switch while in lockdown would be challenging enough. Adding to that with 6 updates since April, new modes, 3 new gen consoles, a cloud streaming platform and more added to that. They’ll be talking about what they’ve learned on the project and as a studio, what they think might work for other studios and encouraging lots of questions and conversation as we all navigate the strangest year of our careers.
Too often, the wider tech world doesn’t really get a chance to peek inside the videogames sector, so whether you’re a Minecraft fan, a gamer, a developer, or just interested in the production of such a HUGE title, this should be in your calendar.
The conference will use Zoom, so you can join in from anywhere. You will need the zoom app installed on your computer or mobile device. Please keep yourself on mute when you’re not speaking.
Queer Code is committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, body size, technical choices, level of technical knowledge, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, religion (or lack thereof) and other personal conditions and choices. Anyone is welcome here, the only thing Queer Code asks is that you adhere to its code of conduct. https://queer-code.org/coc
Details of the Zoom meeting will be made available once you have RSVP’d.
