I've been organizing a weekly game dev co-work meetup in the Boston area about 6 weeks now. I wanted to announce that we've finally found a more permanent home in a really awesome community workspace called Sprout
in Somerville, MA.
If you are in the Boston area and want to check it out drop me a message or email. Typically we've been meeting every Tuesday from around 10am to 6pm (give or take.)
So far it is only 1-3 game devs that have been coming but interest is slowly growing. I figure it will maybe hit 5 or 6 regulars eventually and the space we are in could comfortably support 8. There is a small kitchenette, a refrigerator, great wifi bandwidth, power, tables, and chairs. Tons of cool non-game creators are using the space as well. There is an electronics, machine and woodworking shop, electronics testing gear, musical instruments, and great chances for connections outside the game development community.
The space is also free to use with donations being welcomed. I'm glad we are finally moving out of the noisy cafes.
