The newest Montreal tech site, NextMontréal, has gone live. As their primary audience consists of local entrepreneurs and individuals interested in forming startups, the content should be of interest and offer insights to independent game developers as well. Check out their gaming section, or browse the rest of the site for op-eds and local tech news.
Sony Networking Mixer
As reported over at the IGDA, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) and Export Development Canada (EDC) are hosting a networking reception at the Terrasses Bonsecours in the Old Port on Wednesday, August 25th, from 18:00-21:00. It’s a chance to network with Sony’s 3rd-party PlayStation team—as well as others in the local community—and discuss business and technical topics. It’s a great opportunity, and open to any and all developers who register, free of charge.
Both Ludum Dare 18 and the August Klik of the Month are happening this weekend. If you’re going to be participating, shout it out in the comments—we might even make it a group jam! Suggestions for venues are always welcome.
And that about wraps it up. As always, stay tuned to this space for news as fast as the wires can carry it.
