This week I (Krister) had the oppertunity as a programming and game development teacher at LBS Stockholm [SV] to visit the Nordic Game Conference. The largest game conference in the north.

My first visit to this conference in sunny Malmö.

Epic with Unreal was major sponsor of this event and a lot of other great companies including Unity was here as well. To schedule all the talks was no easy task to say the least. With speakers from major companies to some awesome indies showing us their work or teaching us a plethora of subjects.

Testing all the great indie games was beyond awesome and to see how strong this community is during the Nordic Game Awards showing support to each other.

The conference was great and meeting up new developers are always nice. Overall you can’t have a bad time during these events, everything from what you learn during lectures or whom you meet. The only downside is the Swedish prices of alcohol, not like Vilnius and GameOn.

If you understand Swedish and are interested in education you can read my summary from the perspective of a teacher here.
