March Gathering - 7th March 2006 - Education Theme

Dear friends, fellow developers! These days there are many game industry specific education programs going on in Finland. We in IGDA thought that the educators and companies should have closer ties since both can benefit from an active relationship. That's why we now wish to offer you a compact overview of who some of the educators are and what their programs offer.

So if you're an industry pro curious about current state of education or maybe a studio head looking for trainees, the IGDA Finland March gathering is the place to be! Students are also welcome!

Here's the program, we estimate it will run about 7:30 - 8:30 pm:

- IGDA: Jyri Ranki - Games & Storytelling / Media Lab: Mika Tuomola - ARTO Pelikoulutus: Juha Vanhanen - Helsinki University, Gamelab: Tomi Pasanen - Questions & Answers - From trainee to designer: Esko Javanainen / Sumea

And of course you're welcome to just join the rest of the Finnish game developers for drinks and conversation again at System Club! Hope to see you all there!

Place: System, Club, Keskuskatu 4, 00100 Helsinki (see map: Time: Tue March 7th, doors open at 7.00pm

As always, bring your handheld consoles for some wireless multiplayer fun! Whether you own a PSP or DS, you're bound to find opponents in IGDA Gatherings.
