The QB Exposition
(4/7/2000) Some major players have signed up to make sure that the upcoming QB Expo shapes up to be one of the biggest QB events ever.
Last month, V Planet! talked up a storm about it's latest plans for its second annual QB event. The vision is that there would be an event where different QB gamers and programmers of all skill levels can join together and show off the latest projects being produced in QuickBasic. This event, planned to be uploaded during the Summer, will be called the QB Expo.
After this announcement, V Planet! came to the conclusion that this vision is simply too great for any one webmaster to handle. To gather the latest list of games being produced from such a vast QB community would require the cooperation of every major QB affiliate who is willing to donate a little of their time to make a big dream possible. Since then, V Planet! has been actively searching for major QB Affiliates to help out with the design and format of the 2000 QB Expo. We were pleasantly surprised with some of the big QB sites that have agreed to join forces.
The first Affiliate to show support was none other than Future Software, known as a major epicenter for QB programmers and conversation. This comes as a welcome bonus for the QB Expo, as Future Software is known for their site design and their bread-and-butter development tool, Future Library.
Another key player is AlienQB's QB Dungeon, one of the newest and fastest-growing sites on the Internet. AlienQB will prove to be a valuable addition to the QB Expo lineup because their views on Arcade games show no parralel. AlienQB also offered some of his site space to help host the Expo.
It also seems that you won't find a major QuickBasic event without some involvement from QB Affiliate Master Creating. Merlin has already designed the logo for the QB Expo, and it looks great. But as the QB Expo is an event for QB game previews, Master Creating's big strategy game Imerion will probably have some presence.
The Programming Oasis has also agreed to help organize the QB Expo. This affiliate is most known for having vast knowledge of Basic's history, as well as a pretty good outlook of most programming languages. This will almost certainly mean that the QB Expo will also cover techincal demos and developmental tools, not just games.
Some other big names have signed up to help out with designing the QB Expo. Picker's Games, probably most noted for the game PickMan, is signed up for the event. There will also be support from Abyssware Studios, who are most noted for their game Blur.
There's still a long way to go, as the QB Expo itself is still in planning stages. However, with so many big QB webmasters working at the same time to make sure that the QB Expo is a success, there is a good chance that this event will shape up to be one of the biggest QuickBasic events ever assembled.
