DemoCampGuelph Weathers Storm

Brydon

I work on 20Skaters, Band Of Coders, ThreeFortyNine, and a few others. My vanity site is brydon.me.

Last night we hosted our 25th DemoCampGuelph event here in Guelph. The weather did it’s best to slow us down but we still ended up with a full house. Our invited speaker Ben Yoskovitz didn’t fair as well. After starting the drive from Toronto, he quickly made the right decision to turn back. We’ll get Ben out to our next event.

With no invited speaker, we improvised and hosted another founder panel. Sitting on our panel last night was Jim Estill, Steve Holub and John Mammoliti. We all had an opportunity to ask questions and pick their brains about getting started, what you need, what you don’t need, finding mentors and first customers and more.

We then jumped into a great night of demo’s including an unusual amount of DemoCampGuelph alumni. The Crowie award for crowd favourite demo of the night went to Owen Goss from Milkbag Games for his new game Photobomb.

It’s always humbling to host these events and see what a strong community we have in Guelph and surrounding area. Thanks to everyone who braved the weather and joined us last night. We’ll see you next year at #26!

    I’m sorry I couldn’t make it! After almost 1 hour getting about 1km on the Gardiner I turned back. It took me another 1.5 hours to get home in Toronto. It was crazy. Next time!

      Don’t sweat it! In hindsight, we should have made the call *before* you even attempted it.

    I seem to remember Owen Goss receiving great cheer for his zoo game last time? That guy can do awesome things.
