With Pi Jam coming up this Friday, I sat down with organizer Anna Prein, a fellow 2013 Women in Games Scholarship recipient and current Vancouver Film School student to find out more about the jam, as well as the history of Hat Jam.
My Vancouver Film School programming teacher, Peter Walsh, was kind enough to pass on a bunch of free tickets to the Unity 2013 Unite Conference to staff and randomly selected students.
Boy, what luck I had. The 3 days of the conference were easily the best time I’ve had in Vancouver yet – hundreds of game developers, programmers and the like from all over the world gathered in one location to hurrah Unity, play with new technology, listen to talks curated by Unity… and indulge in the free food and drinks at the nightly parties.
My blog posts about the event will be focussed on the people I met and the highlights of the conference from the perspective of a student who’s a beginner programmer and is only just starting to learn how to use Unity.
Here’s a few of my classmates standing in the main hallway (from left to right): Nick, Chris and Andrew.
