Brisbane games congress to offer aspiring developers a range of workshops

The Brisbane-based World Computer Congress, running from September 20 to 23, will feature a series of hands-on computer game workshops for attendees to learn from industry-leading developers.

The workshops will be hosted by PlayIT, and will look at the shape or design of games, provide insights into the business of writing for games, the dynamic nature of games audio and topics of interest to animators.

Workshops will be run by prominent industry names such as freelance games right, Leanne Taylor, developer Morgan Jaffitt, artist Milenko Tunjic, and audio artistic Andrew Curnock.

In a release, chair of PlayIT, Laura Daniels, said the workshops are aimed at giving computer game developers an insight into the future of a billion-dollar industry, and give a taste of what to expect in a games development career.

As such, the workshops are aimed at high school students, tertiary starters, educators and general public interested in learning more about the games industry.

Workshops are limited to 25 participants and will cost $35 for a three-hour course. Registration can be done here.
