How games are made and why they matter
In the span of a generation, video games have gone from a curiosity to the largest entertainment industry in the world. In this talk, we'll explore why games have been so successful. We'll start off looking at what it takes to make a video game. Next up is game technology and the lessons games have taught us about ourselves. We'll look at how games are used in learning, business, science, and even medical care. Finally, we'll look forward to see where games are going, and give you a chance to try out the latest virtual reality and holographic displays.
NOTE: The DaVinci Institute is interested in offering an 11-week course in game development as part of our DaVinci Coders program. This workshop is a first step in assessing the demand in this area. If a course like this would be of interest to you or someone you know, please let us know.
