Remix: The 12-hour iOS development challenge happening at Mind Camp 7!

Mind Camp 7 iOS coding competition

UPDATE: If you're an iOS developer, artist, designer, or engineer, and want to take part in REMIX, Monster Costume is offering you free access to the entire Mind Camp 7 event! Drop an email to andru AT gearlve.com to get your free ticket.

If you're an iOS developer, designer, artist or the like, you'll wanna pay attention to yet another reason why Seattle Mind Camp 7 is where you'll wanna be on August 20! Monster Costumer, the sponsor of Mind Camp 7, will be hosting REMIX - an overnight 12-hour iOS game development challenge. Teams of three will take the existing source code of a never-before-published, bare bones, functional iOS game. It is then your task to take that code, and mash on it until it's a game of unsurpassed brilliance (or, you know, until 12 hours is up.) At the end of the challenge, the team with the most outstanding finished product, as determined by our judges and Mind Camp attendees, will be named the winner - and all three team members will each receive an Apple iPad 2!

The competition will begin at 9:00pm, so you'll be able to enjoy all the other sessions and festivities during Mind Camp - but overnight you'll be battling to walk away with a trio of iPads, and to show off your stuff. Monster Costume will even partner with your team to publish the game to the App Store.

So, what is the game to be remixed? We figured you'd ask, but unfortunately that's being kept secret until 9:01pm on August 20!

Be sure to get registered for Seattle Mind Camp 7 so you can take part in the competition - and then head on over to the REMIX registration page. There's no extra fee to participate in the REMIX challenge, but this helps us plan for how many people want to take part, who's teaming up with who, who needs a teammate, etc.

Mind Camp 5.0 is on - we need a venue!

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Upcoming, Announcements

Alright gang, I know we’ve been waiting a while to secure sponsorship to move forward with Seattle Mind Camp 5.0. I am happy to announce that we have secured it! Now all we need is a venue. The last place we used, the Tukwila Community Center, doesn’t have a weekend open for us until sometime in November. Even if we went with that, there would be a few rooms that we wouldn’t have access to if we did a 24-hour event. So the question is, are you guys okay with an event that is less than 24 hours (say, around 14 hours instead?) if it means we get to hold the event in a fantastic venue? Or should we look elsewhere for a place that would allow us to return to the full 24-hour format?

If we should look at other venues, suggestions are always more than welcome. Hit us in the comments with your thoughts!


Mind Camp 5.0 to be rescheduled

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Upcoming, Announcements

I wanted to follow up from the email I sent out a couple of weeks ago to those of you who have purchased a ticket to Mind Camp 5.0 already. Since we weren’t able to raise enough sponsorship to cover the cost of the event, we will be delaying it. As it turns out, the usual companies who would sponsor have pretty much all spent their budget on , which takes place the week before Mind Camp would have.

I am in talks with the venue to see what date we can push back to - I am thinking it is going to be mid-March, so about an 8 week delay. This will (hopefully) give us a little more time to firm up sponsorship so we can get things paid for. As far as Mind Camp 5.0 goes, we have so far only signed one sponsor - TrenchMice at $500. A big thank you goes out to them.

If you’ve already paid for a ticket and want a refund, just drop me an email, and I will issue you one immediately. Otherwise, your ticket will simply be transferred and will be good for the newly chosen date. Once I found out when that will be, I will let you guys know.

In the meantime, if you have contacts at any local companies that you believe would benefit from supporting the event, please send them my way. Feel free to get back to me with any questions, and have a happy holiday!
