Title: Video Game Developer Roundtable Roundup
Post by: Thygrrr on 31.08.2008, 21:35:29
Hi Folks,

this is the official round-up thread for the Video Game Developers Roundtable; basically the "who were all these people, and what was left to say?" thread.

I counted 35 Furs sitting or standing in the SIG room, which exceeded even my 'best case' attendance estimates by 15%. Whee! Thanks to all of you for taking the time at the con and making the Roundtable a success.


Well, this is me:

Hello (again),

I'm Susanne (Sirana J. Helena) and I was there to get deeper information about the work in this industry. From the 1st of octobre 2008 I'll study "game design" on a private german school in Berlin, the "Mediadesign Hochschule", short: "MD.H". (Maybe the german furs may know it).
The most interesting parts for me were the parts of the authors and artists. Until EF. After I heard that these may be the most unthankful jobs in the game industry I was/am a little scared of them.

There will be other jobs to do there and I just don't know the majority yet. I can't speak Pascal, C, C++, Klingon etc fluently yet just because I had no real possibility to learn it. The lessons I had in high school were a little bit weird because of our teacher who knew much more about informatics than teaching this to his students. To keep it short: We didn't learn nothing helpful and because of other subjects I had no time to teach it myself.
But programming, creating maps and other more technical stuff still sounds interesting for me and maybe I will become a real geek in my time in Berlin. Who knows.. :)
