VideoGame Developer's Club Paper


(Waffler) #1

I decided to take an hour or two to write this outline for a paper about the VideoGame Developer’s Club I want to start at my school … Maybe I should just leave it in outline form :-? . It may end up being a lot more pages than I wish to write. :o

If you have any ideas of what I might need to add, please comment. :slight_smile:

Someone wished me luck with the club when I first mentioned it, so I thought maybe this might be interesting for someone.
