GameDev 2019 at Wyndham Tech

Our guest blogger is Lynne Telfer from Wyndham Tech

Wyndham Tech School will be receiving high scores with the Wyndham Partner schools as it runs its inaugural Game Development Convention ‘GameDev 2019’ on the 4th and 5th December. This series of taste tester workshops will allow Wyndham District students to find out more about the vast opportunities in Victoria’s and Australia’s fast-growing Video Game Industry.

“Award-winning games will be on display and ready for play as our students learn from the some of the best in the Video Game industry,” said Lynne Telfer, organiser of  GameDev, “We are fortunate to have such a prominent and emerging quality Game Development industry in our city and that spurred us on to bring insightful learning experiences linking the industry straight to our students. The support from the industry has been tremendous.”

“We have a famous Youtuber ready to teach about animation and how to promote your ideas.”

There will also be cosplay, competitions, and esports.

“All workshops are run by industry experts and are linked to the Victorian curriculum, ensuring our students  receive a high-quality experience as they explore the many facets and career pathways in the industry, “said Zoran Vasic, Interim Director of Wyndham Tech School, “We are excited to bring a career opportunity to our students that they will remember for years to come.”

“We are lucky to be hosted by Victoria University Polytechnic and look forward to showing how they can lead to careers in game development and other aspects of future employment. DET Teaching and Learning will be showing their own use of serious gaming using Minecraft as a game engine. ”

There is still room on both days so If your school is in the Wyndham area please contact Lynne Telfer on lynnette.telfer@vu.edu.au to book.
