Hmm. Maybe a general class on something that's not necessarily a video
game? I have personally played around with Titanium, Unity, PhoneGap,
Spritebuilder, Xamarin, Intel's XDK, Xcode (for iOS) and Android Studio.
I'm sure there's more I haven't heard of. Maybe we could spend a session or
two going over the available platforms, then we could each come up with 10
or so ideas for an app, pick one, then and choose the appropriate platform
to use. Anyone else on the list want to weigh in on what they would find
useful?
