Friday LunchLab Game Thinking and Design Mechanics

Friday LunchLab: Game Thinking and Design Mechanics

Description:  We have heard about the explosive use of game techniques to engage users in new and different ways. However, game design is more than sticking points, leaderboards, and badges on your application to engage your users. 

Presenter: Ricardo Leon, Founder at Pactica - Ricardo Leon has more than a decade leading technology ventures. He has been fortunate to work for top organizations like NASA, Lockheed Martin, and Nokia. Ricardo always enjoys applying unconventional thinking to solve complex problems and bringing together multidisciplinary teams to create simple and beautiful products tailored to the needs of people.

    It's a bad time for me, but I actually have a lot to contribute to similar discussions in the future. Maybe we can aim for something after hours?
