Colin Posted April 15, 2007 Share Posted April 15, 2007 (edited) Game Developers' Evening 5 with GRIN April 24. "Don't miss the last opportunity this year to visit one of the highly popular Game Developers' Evenings in Stockholm! Swedish Game Awards and GRIN, developers of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for PC, invites you to an exciting evening Tuesday April 24, featuring interesting speakers, food and drink, as well as plenty of opportunities to mingle with other developers and gamers. Subjects and speakers are as below - and note that all presentations will be in English." - Rickard Johansson, Lead Mission Designer: "Introduction to GRIN", "How to Win Swedish Game Awards" - Erik Pettersson, Lead Artist: "The Art of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2" - Niklas Frykholm and Tobias Persson, Engine Programmers: "Game Profiling and Optimizing" - Simon Viklund, Sound Designer: "Sound: It's Not How You Record It - It's How You Implement It" - Hjalmar VikstrÃ¶m, Lead Gameplay Programmer: "Implementing Gameplay With Scripts" The event is free and open for everyone. If you register for the event, you will receive a GRIN t-shirt when you attend! That looks like it would be a lot of fun. Grin actually helps make these awards possible by being part of it, and an active member. The awards are also linked to the Higher education system in Sweden, which I might add is fast becomeing one of the world leaders in Video games. Education: Sweden has a large amount of universities that has understood what a creative and complex process game development is and therefore added game development to their educational curriculum in some way. Some universities have pure game development programs that are focused on some specific area, such as level design, and some are more traditional engineering programs where games counts as a larger project. The universities listed here are those that have shown their support for SGA. I believe some of the forum members are in this system and have had help directly from Grin. Securing your own future by helping future employees is a good thing. I hope the evening is a blast. Edited April 15, 2007 by Colin Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
