Inaugural lecture for the first IGDA chapter in Ireland

Digital Hub, Dublin, Ireland

The IGDA has a new chapter. At the invitation of Michael Kenna of Enterprise Ireland, Tony Kelly of Intel, and the delightfully-named Aphra Kerr of Dublin City University, I went over to deliver the inaugural lecture at their first meeting, along with a game design workshop the next day. I gave the perennial favorite, "Bad Game Designer, No Twinkie!" It was an overflow crowd and their energy and enthusiasm were infectious. Ireland may be small and new to the business, but they have some very smart and imaginative people.
