- THE BELL TOWER
Today, NestED proudly presents it’s first themed week : Gamer Week! The next five days are all about games, gaming, and gamers. What are your favorite games, whether they be online or on boards? What makes a game fun to play? How does game design work?
With those questions in mind, NestED is bringing in two speakers this week. In collaboration with the PA Gaming Club, we are proud to welcome two people in the tech and gaming industry who speak about design, augmented reality, and their experiences in the industry.
Please join us on Tuesday, November 3rd, at 7 p.m., for a NestED talk by Lisa Stump, software developer and game designer.
Stump works at MIT’s Scheller Teacher Education Program as a software developer heading up the TaleBlazer team. TaleBlazer is a game platform that allows game designers (including students!) to make and play location-based augmented reality games in their own neighborhoods or at their own locations. In addition to game design, Stump runs a programming club using Scratch at her children’s elementary school. She will be discussing her career path as a woman in the tech industry, her experiences working with MIT student coders, and will demo the TaleBlazer game.
Please join us on Wednesday, November 4th, at 7p.m., for a NestED talk by Dr. Ian Lane Davis, an expert in artificial intelligence and the founder of Mad Doc Software.
In 2008, Mad Doc Software was acquired by Rockstar Games and was rebranded as Rockstar New England. Davis had his hand in creating games such as: Empire Earth II, Star Trek Armada, Max Payne 3, and Grand Theft Auto V. Davis earned his doctorate in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University and has been acknowledged as one of the top Artificial Intelligence experts in the video game industry today.
