I dropped over to the CNA campus on Prince Philip Drive today to check out their new Video Game Art and Design digs. What a great spot!
Janice and Greg were kind enough to take me through what they do over there and show me the facilities, as well as talking about their ambitions for the program and the community at large. These folks have some big ideas, and I’m glad to have them coming to our first meetup to talk about the state of the industry in the province.
I’ll be interested to find out if any of the devs in the province have looked at the program. In particular, the “capstone” project, which can apparently take the form of a 6-week internship, seems like a valuable proposition. If what I saw today is any indication, this could be a great resource for developers in the province.
