Best world-events for a technical artist


#1

Hi guys!

I would like to open a thered where we can put together all those events & dates (like siggraph, GDC, or even Demoscene parties!) we think could be usefull in order to learn about Technical Art or game related techniques.

I don’t like to come empty handed so, here come my proposals:

GDC
http://www.gdconf.com/

GDC Europe
http://www.gdceurope.com/

GDC China
http://www.gdcchina.com/

Siggraph
http://www.siggraph.org/

Assembly
http://www.assembly.org/

Autodesk university
http://au.autodesk.com/

Online events :

do you know any other?
please, tell us :smiley:

BTW, perhaps (in fact, very probably) this was covered in another thread I was unable to find :P. so please, don’t hesitate to guide me to it :wink:

cheers!

<ducks/>


#3

I tend to go to city based meetups from http://www.meetup.com/

Especially in Montreal :slight_smile:

There are also the IGDA meetings

Thnks for your replies guys :slight_smile:

I’m adding them the my first post in order to compile them all :smiley:

BTW, this “meetup” thinggy is great!! (I never heard about it before :stuck_out_tongue: )
@Nysuatro: I’m curious… What’s the topic that you use to look for there? tech art?

Maybe keywords like Indie, gamedev, unity, unreal, VR

Eventually meetup.com will suggest interesting meetups anyway :slight_smile:

I even go to startup meetups, Data science, internet of things, …
There is a lot to learn from different kind of meetups. Especially the diversity of people you meet.


#6

yep! I like your initiative :slight_smile:


#7

TA meetups would have been so cool, I’ve only ever worked at places where I was the only TA.

Too bad I’m not in the right area at the moment.


#8

where are you if I may ask? :slight_smile:


#9

Faaaar north in the Swedish/Norweigan alpine, I’m guessing there’s no TA meetups here since there’s no people here :laugh: And before that in China where any such meetups/conferences would been limited by my terrible Mandarin skills

However I’m looking for a new workplace to relocate to now so I’m hoping better in the future :):
