The IGDA Vienna chapter meeting took place earlier tonight. There were a LOT of people – so much that the room was too small and humid and warm and noisy. In other words: a nice problem to have ;)
My presentation went pretty well except for some technical issues with PowerPoint and the fact that I decided at the last minute to use a PC instead of a Mac, and the PC didn’t have QuickTime or any Windows Media Player codecs installed, so I couldn’t show my videos. But I made it up later when I hijacked Thad’s PowerBook :)
Thad’s lecture, which was way more technical than my “What I did on holiday in Monaco” thing, went well too. I’ll add a link as soon as he’s put the slides on his website. Harald Riegler from Sproing talked about G.A.M.E., the new association of development companies in Germany and Austria, similar to TIGA or APOM. This was also very interesting.
All in all, a good night with a huge bunch of people, and a good atmosphere. Congratulations to Clemens Beer, the chapter coordinator!
Update: Thad’s slides and some pictures (of him) are here.
