VENUE: Bitmaker Labs
ADDRESS: Toronto Street & King Street West, Cramahe, ON K0K, Canada
Girl Geeks Toronto is back with a hands on game design workshop for women at Bitmaker Labs.
We’re welcoming you into Girl Geeks Toronto’s fall session with a fun, hands-on event on game design. It may be back-to-school season, but we’ll show you that serious gaming isn’t just for kids!
This hands-on workshop event will be led by Brittney Oberfeld, Technical Lead for the Girls Learning Code and Kids Learning Code programs offered by Ladies Learning Code. Brittney will offer up some of the lessons she’s learned teaching girls to design games, introduce us to some of the key principles of good game design, and then we’ll dive into some hands-on work designing your very own game using the web app Scratch.
This is a BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) event hosted in the beautiful workshop space of our September sponsor, Bitmaker Labs. Their space has many outlets, but we suggest that you bring a fully charged laptop so that a low battery doesn’t interrupt your game making groove at any point during the event!
6:30pm - Doors open at Bitmaker Labs
7:00 - 8:30 - Brittney’s workshop
8:30 - 9:00pm - Work on your game & hang out with some awesome Girl Geeks
