Recap: Corona SDK Meetup (August 4, 2011)

To kick off the weekend, Corona enthusiasts (SDK and/or beer) packed Ansca HQ in Silicon Valley for another mighty fun meetup!

I think we're gonna need a bigger office... Again!


Much of the night could not have been made possible without PapayaMobile, who graciously provided pizza and assorted libations for our beloved meetup brethren. Thanks guys! :-)

The meetup itself was relatively unscripted in comparison to the previous one we had with scheduled demos and presentations. Of course, that didn’t mean that there weren’t plenty of Corona pet projects being shown off by some of our guests!

And, of course, our very own Walter and Carlos stepped onto literal soapboxes to run the gauntlet of questions posed to them by attendees. I might have had a little too much Corona SDK that night to recall specifics, but I do remember a couple secrets being leaked to the crowd at hand! 😉


And speaking of secrets, some of the folks who stuck around late got to see some of the things we’re working on for the next big update!

Catastrophic security breaches aside, we had an excellent time hosting a much larger than expected crowd at our headquarters.

If you were there, feel free to give any feedback in the comments below. Also, if your schedule didn’t permit you to come, you’re always welcome to swing by anytime you’re in the area! :-)

And now, we’ll spend some time recovering until next time…

    Man, I knew I should have sticked around even so I left at 9 pm! Sooo what about this next BIG update? :)


    ps: Hi Josh, it was really nice meeting you.

  3. I’m in Vancouver, BC. Any chances guys to bring you here?
    It’s summer here and that has a lot of meaning when you are talking about Vancouver.
    So let’s not wait until the rain season and let’s organize a BBQ here at the beach.
    Carlos? Walter? Anybody?
