Event description

Description

Description:

The AFK (Away From Keyboard) game development symposium is an event designed to provide passionate SIAT undergraduate game design students with a chance to showcase their work to an industry audience. Students are encouraged to submit their game development projects. Of these submissions the four strongest teams will be selected to present their work for feedback from a panel of five Vancouver games industry judges, as well as an audience of attendees. Attendees are also invited to the post-event mixer for a chance to network with Vancouver game industry officials and jumpstart their careers. We are very happy to be returning for a second year after receiving overwhelming support in 2015. Last year we were proud to host over 100 amazing game development students and industry members. We plan to be back bigger and better than ever and would love for you to join us.

In addition to student projects the symposium will also feature a talk from an established member of the Vancouver game development community. This talk will focus on the transition between student and professional game developer, as well as how we can continue to strengthen the connection between education and industry. Free registration is required to ensure an accurate attendee headcount. To register simply visit our Eventbrite page using the 'RSVP' link located in the website header.
