Wednesday was pretty good at the GDC (pictures after clicking more 🙂 ) Continue reading GDC08 – Wednesday
Tuesday was pretty great – I had the opportunity to go to a game development studio (something I am glad I did do!) and saw some stuff later in the day (Click more for report with pictures) Continue reading GDC08 – Tuesday
Tis’ Sunday in San Francisco, and I am back after trekking around the town a lot more (mainly so I can find something to do tonight – I’ve decided to go see a film, because it’s easy and not much is open on Sunday evening 🙂 ). (Read on for my day) Continue reading San Francisco second day
Okay, been packing today, and found out I can’t book in online for my United flight (one mark down for them…).
I also realised I hadn’t finalised what I was doing at GDC. My previous plan is all intact, and I’ve decided to go to a few of the censorship things and miss out on the Fable talk – I realise my Monday tutorial will be based around this so I’ll have had enough of dogs by then I bet 🙂
So this is my schedule now. I’ve only got the two noted clashes, just in case I change my mind. It seems pretty empty, and there are several other things which I’d have not minded going to but can’t – with only 3 days it means there are 7-8 sessions going on in any one slot. At least only one AI thing overlapped, 9AM on Friday, and I decided to go with the 3rd day of AI roundtable/discussion stuff.
I’ve finished printing everything I should need, and my Macbook has the useful information emails I’ve got from various places. I’ve also been informed by David Hayward of a cool travel wiki, so I’m looking at that for some things to do. Finally, Audiosurf should be released today, USA time, so I lament the fact I’m taking a mac laptop and not a windows one, since I won’t be able to play it until I come back now 🙁
My schedule is thus: Continue reading Final GDC08 schedule and preperation
I’ve been looking at the GDC2008 schedule, working out what I want to go to through the days. This is currently my plan with notes (with lots of conflicts too, urg! I’ll be sorting them as I figure out what to see in what order, since some are repeated things). Continue reading My GDC2008/San Francisco schedule
I’ve received the IGDA Foundation’s Eric Dybsand Memorial Scholarship for AI Development, to go to the Game Developers Conference 2008 in San Francisco!
I’m honoured! 😀
I’ve been withholding this up until it was announced on the IGDA’s website, but now that the organisation has sorted the passes and the winners, I can post. I’m still very much busy with exams, but have booked my hotel and flight to get over there and now need to sort what I’ll be doing.
Expect photos, reports and whatnot since I’ll be taking over my Macbook, and will be primarily looking at AI sessions – some very interesting ones are going to be put on, which I’ll be sure to attend.
