We were asked to speak at the Monash Boot Camp a few months ago. It’s horrible how quickly these things come to be “oh my god it’s tomorrow I’m speaking” so we hope we did a good job.
The boot camp is run annually for kids (year 10, 11 and 12) and this year goes for a whole 7 days! There’s speakers from vendors such as Microsoft, Adobe and game publishers and studios and sound guys and game comps and a whole bunch of stuff. Seems pretty amazing.
We tried to talk about making small games. We hope we helped them a bit – kept them entertained for at least 50 mins which is good – and got a bit of a haXe plug in there if anyone was listening.
If you’ve never done public speaking before it’s really worth being involved in this kind of thing – get’s you over the fear pretty quickly.
You can now read all about it at Invest Victoria Games Blog as well.
