***Guest Speaker Jay Freeman (saurik)***

Have you ever wondered how a computer works?
In this talk, Jay Freeman (saurik) will explain, taking nothing for granted other than a belief in magnetism and the most basic understanding of electricity (that it flows through wires ;P), how to build an operational and programmable computer.

Jay Freeman (saurik) is a part-time UCSB CCS Computing Instructor, but is best known as the developer of Cydia, the alternative to the App Store for jaibroken iOS devices. In the past, as a consultant, he has worked on other lower-level production systems, including emulators and compilers.
The Santa Barbara City College Computer Science Club is hosting this talk, and has reserved a large lecture hall, and so this talk is open to any interested parties in addition to their members.
Thursday (Nov 19th) at 4pm - 6pm, SBCC PS101

Great things are happening!

After 7 crazy weeks me and other Unity developers participated (still are) in the Unity alpha with Apple TV's compatibility.

Due on Dec 8th, version 5.3 will bring awesome improvements to the most awesome game engine ever, including in app purchasing (no more third party libraries) and much much more.
