August events including AppRochester Junior: Game App Programming for Kids!

Lots of activity in August… in addition to our regular First Tuesday meeting, we have planned a special event just for kids 10-16!  Details below.

Our August 6th meeting will feature our own Andy Knoll, musical genius and member of the Lou Gramm Band.  He will be discussing Web Audio:
– Working code
– Audio examples
– Working oscillators, gain nodes, filters/EQ, and maybe effects like reverb, delay.
RSVP at NextPlex (if you saw an email from them, they had the wrong date/time… ignore the email.  The website is accurate.)
 On Saturday August 17th, 9am to 3pm we will have a Game App Development Class, just for kids from age 10 to 16.  Parents must attend and there is a limit of 12 kids.  RSVP at
Do your kids enjoy playing games on their computer or handheld devices?
Are you looking to spend some time helping your child explore game development and related career possibilities?
Perhaps you and your child have considered learning about making games, but are afraid it might be too difficult a task?  Fear not!
Attend a one day workshop dedicated to introducing kids ages 10-16 and their parents/guardians to the joy of creating games.   You don’t even have to know how to program!
This one day workshop will introduce students to Scirra’s Construct2 (, a free, powerful tool used to create games with little to no programming.
Lunch will be provided and attendees will be required to bring a Windows 7 or
Windows 8 laptop with the Construct2 software already installed.
Each student aged 10 to 16 must be accompanied by a parent / guardian throughout the entire workshop.
It’s free, and attendance is limited to 12 kids, so please only register if you are sure you and your child will attend.
The event is sponsored by AppRochester, Microsoft, RIT, and Scirra.
We will meet at the Golisano Center for Computing at RIT, in the Auditorium (room 1400.)
