  • “leapfest 2012″ Invades Akihabara!

    On February 18, UEI was proud to sponsor the event “leapfest 2012″ in Akihabara, Tokyo!

    The event included presentation of prizes for the 9leap contest, speeches, lightning talks, and a “9 Minutes Coding Battle”  to make a game in 540 seconds or less using enchant.js.

    And what would an event be without swag? In the middle is a t-shirt featuring the enchant.js source code.

    We’re planning on selling these at many more events in the future, so be sure to get one for yourself!
