Klostergatan 2, Lund
Here before 4th of June

As the European football championship draws ever closer, we at tretton37 thought that we should warm up with an epic cloudball event! Cloudball is a fantastic game developed by Giraff in cooperation with Microsoft.

We’ll start out with a brief introduction. I’ll introduce you to the competition, the rules and give you some tips and tricks.

When the timer starts we split into pairs and start coding. During two hours we develop and tweak our cloudball-teams under the guidance of me and other colleagues with experience implementing a cloudball team. After we have tweaked our cloudball teams to perfection-ish we will watch our own Football Championship while indulging beer and pizza.

And yes, of course there will be a prize for the best team! As an added bonus you can upload your team to the real competition in order to win it all!

Please bring a laptop with Visual Studio and XNA installed. If you cant bring one it won’t be a problem, you can just pair with someone else that has.

You are welcome to join us at our new office in Lund at 18:00, we start the introduction 18:15. I really hope to see you there; remember space is limited so please RSVP if you would like to come. If you have any questions feel free to contact Joel Sannerstedt, +46 72 534 13 37.

“…under the guidance of me and other cloudball developers”
You have not participated in the developement of cloudball and you should not take credit for it.

Other than that, a very cool event.

    Thank you Lim! It’s going to be a blast to meet up with other devs and hack Cloudball-teams.

    First of I’m sorry it comes across as we are taking credit for anything. We have enjoyed playing around with Cloudball a lot and we’ve been developing teams during our code-nights just for kicks. What we meant was Cloudball developers in the same sense as someone is a .NET developer or a web developer. In retrospect maybe Cloudball-team developers would be a more appropriate wording to avoid any misunderstanding. Credit where credit is due.
