The last year has been so chock full of conferences and festivals my head is still spinning a bit. I wasn’t sure if I was going to attend Eyeo, but I’ve heard nothing but amazing stuff, and it IS local. Last year I remember the price made me balk…I mean OVER $600? Really? Well…this year I’ve learned some interesting lessons, including the fact that this is a bargain for a great conference, and the fact that I didn’t need to pay for hotel or travel it was a downright steal!
Here is the talk I recently did at the Gotland Game Conference in Visby, Sweden entitled Defining the Box: Creativity and Inspiration in the Unknown (click for more details).
I was give the incredible honor of being invited to speak at the Gotland Game Conference in Sweden (video of the talk in my post Defining the Box). They flew me over there and put me up in a lovely hotel, along with a bunch of other incredible speakers and judges that really made me feel like I had to prove something. 🙂 The event is largely organized by Uppsala University’s game development program, so the conference had a high percentage of undergraduates. I decided it was important I gear my talk towards them, and focus on the challenges I’ve personally faced over the years when it comes to my creative and technical career.
