A quick trip to the Waterford Institute of Technology

Waterford, Ireland

WITKarl Sandison at the Waterford Institute of Technology got in touch about a workshop and some consulting, and fortunately I was able to squeeze in a one-day visit between Animex and going off to Skövde, Sweden to teach for a week. It was my first visit to Waterford since I went as a tourist back in 1999. There wasn't time to be a tourist this time around, because I only had a single day there and went back to England the same evening, but I did give a lecture, a short game design workshop, and did a little consulting with the faculty about their curriculum. I got a chance to chat with some of the students about their game development projects, and I was quite impressed with the thoroughness and professionalism of their work. I'm hoping I'll get a chance to come back someday.
