January 08 Gathering and Presentation

Hiho again! Santa is knocking on the door already but before xmas holidays and celebrations begin IGDA Finland wants to tell you something before you dig in to the ham and pudding. On January 8th, IGDA Finland will be organizing 2008's first IGDA Gathering, what a perfect chance to get that xmas ham or turkey out of your system! But wait... there is more. In January IGDA Finland is also organizing the second presentation in the IGDA Finland Presentations series!

*IGDA FINLAND PRESENTATIONS #2: TOOLS* Place: Papa Giovanni Showroom at WTC (opposite of System Rock/Public Corner) Time: Tuesday 8th January, 17.30

The second session focuses on Tools. Game industry is under constant evolution. Companies have grown and technologies improved which has made it necessary to evolve work processes and tools as well. Agile methods are widely in use but what else is there? What kind of tools the leading game developers use? How tools fit together with novel design processes and alterable teams? On January 8th, Kai Auvinen and Lassi Leppinen from Digital Chocolate (Sumea) and Sami Vanhatalo from Remedy will talk about Tools in mobile and console game development.

The session starts at 5.30pm and end at 7pm. After IGDA Finland Presentations it is pub night as usual! Welcome! The second IGDA Finland Presentations in association with Remedy will take place on January 8th 2008. This time the place is Papa Giovanni Showroom at WTC -- just opposite System Rock!
