October Meeting

in Event announcements,Post Mortem

This month at Boston Post Mortem we’re having a panel on Education for Game Development! Since school is once again going in full swing, we thought it would be a great idea to have a panel discussion with local educators about what is going on in the game development education space right now. We’ll discuss the successes and failures of game development education to this point, and what we’re looking towards for the future.

Our panel members are:

Robert Lindeman from Worcester Polytechnic Institute”s Interactive Media & Game Development Program
Philip Tan from the MIT GAMBIT Lab
Eric Braude from the Computer Science Department of Boston University

Ian Davis, who is a guest professor at MIT, will be moderating the panel.

PLEASE NOTE: This month’s meeting is not beginning until 8pm. (There is a scheduling conflict with the Skellig.) Please feel free to show up at the usual time, however we WILL NOT have access to the back room until 8pm. We’ll begin the panel at 8:30 PM and have time for our usual dose of announcements.

Logistics:

Tuesday, October 14th @ 8pm
The Skellig, Waltham
For directions, see here.

(Note that there’s no sponsorship this month, please pay for your own drinks and food!)

Hope to see you all there.

Hello! I just joined igda and am wondering if I’m allowed to come to one of these meetings?

Do I need to bring anything as well?

Thank you! 🙂

Kelly, our meetings are completely open, you are certainly allowed to come. There’s nothing you need to bring except possibly some cash if you want to purchase dinner or drinks at the restaurant!

Yay! Thank you, Darius! I am trying to get into the business and trying to get as involved in the community as I can. I’m very excited for these meetings!

If I can possibly do anything to volunteer or the like, please let me know!

Thank you very much! 😀
