Idu 2010 @ gdc

Hey Devs!

If any of you remember we threw 2 IDU (iPhone Developer Union) parties last year. They were pretty successful and a whole lotta fun! We're organizing another one this year for GDC in March. At this point I'm still trying to nail down a venue and a few sponsors to throw in a modest contribution towards drinks.

Also, I haven't heard about what nights other parties are happening (ie: ngmoco's gig, etc) and I'd like to try to not clash with those directly related to us iPhone people. Anyone heard of other parties going on yet?

So far I'm looking at Thursday March 11th for the IDU party.

I welcome any thoughts or suggestions for this event!

Ok guys and gals I think we're going with Thursday March 11 for the party! We're going to go back to the Marriott Hotel Lobby Bar and wing like we did the first time. It seems to be fun that way. Prob start around 7pm or so.

I'll post reminders and updates as the date approaches!

Oh and we're still looking for anyone who would be willing to throw a modest amount of $$ towards sponsoring drinks for the event. Let me know if you're interested!

Wait, doing it Thursday goes right up against the IGF Awards Ceremony, and I imagine most indie game devs will want to be there.

Any chance of doing it on Wednesday evening instead?

Sweet, glad this is happening again though sorry I won't be able to help sponsor this time around

I'd agree with Noel and Superbad that Wednesday would be better than Thur for me, but I'll try to be their either way!
