About this event

The Annual Ireland Game Conference is here!  It is the biggest student-held recruitment event in Ireland, and helped many students to get started in Game Industry. This year, we are hosting Riot Games, Unity, Romero Games, Vela Games (All the Companies that actually work and hire in Ireland) and AI & Games, run by Dr. Tommy Thompson of KCL who is a researcher, consulant and content creater that worked with Intel Gaming, Jaw Drop Games, and Digital Lode. The companies are going to give talks on both technical aspects and recruitment, along with their company culture, content and all in all, what you need to do to kick-start your career in various field of Game Industry. 

This year we will also have Q&A session at the end of every speech, so you will have a chance to ask your questions and network with the best of the best in the field. 

This conference is focused on Game Industry, not Game Development (although it is emphasized heavily), so if you are interested in Cloud, AI, Cybersecurity or old good plain software-engineering, it is going to help you to kickstart your career. But we recommend a modest interest in Games, well cos... they are fun!

We are then gonna meet for AI & Games GameJam as a Chapter which is the only GameJam that focuses and grade on AI rather than GameDev only. 

This event is a collabration between TU Dublin, LSE and Queen's University Belfast chapters.

Looking forward to see you there!

Ogulcan,
GDSC Lead
