Tuesday, December 24, 2019 at 7:00:00 PM Denny's Restaurant 1600 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City,

If you do not immediately see us then tell the Denny's staff that you are here for the Kansas City Video Game Developers Meetup group.

Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!

Winter Weather and Campus Closings
Under certain weather conditions — winter storms among them — it may become necessary to cancel classes or close the JCCC campus. When campus is closed, all activities at all JCCC locations are cancelled.
The College announces campus closures, cancellations and weather-related delays several ways:
·        A weather announcement is posted at the top of all pages of the JCCC website
·        Students, faculty and staff receive a text message from the JCCC Alert system. All students, faculty and          staff are automatically signed up for emergency text messages. Learn more at JCCC Alert
·        The closing announcement is posted on the College’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.
·        A recorded message replaces the greeting on the College's main switchboard at 913-469-8500.

Several local TV stations receive and announce closing notices:
·        KMBC-TV 9
·        KSHB-TV 41
·        KCTV-TV 5
·        WDAF-TV 4
