Game Developers Week: Save the Date!

Want to learn more about life and work in the gaming industry from professional developers? If so, then save May 22 through May 25 for Game Developers Week 2018. For four nights, from 6-8 p.m. in Room 6011 of Donald Bren Hall, students will have the opportunity to hear from industry professionals such as:

  • Tim Ford, a lead software engineer at Blizzard working on Overwatch (May 22 at 6 p.m.),
  • Nikki Crenshaw, an associate UX researcher, also from Blizzard, and UCI alumna who received her Ph.D. in Informatics (May 24 at 6 p.m.), and
  • Earl Baylon, a voice actor whose game work includes Tomb Raider (May 24th at 7 p.m.).

Every year, UCI’s Video Game Development Club (VGDC) hosts this series of talks. VGDC comprises students, alumni and industry professionals and aims to help students build technical expertise, create successful portfolios, and network with other game developers so they have an edge when entering the industry. For more information about VGDC and Game Developers Week 2018, see the VGDC Facebook page.
