November 9 and 10, 2013 in Los Angeles
At the USC (University of Soutern California) campus in Downtown LA.
99 FREE 1-hour sessions
Around 500 developers.
$140K promissed in prizes but the prizes are really silly so if you go, go for the sessions.
It usually happens twice a year.
It’s a great free event but sometimes it’s hit and miss with the quality of the sessions.
We enjoyed a great session on 3D gaming with Unity by a Microsoft Evangelist.
An intro to Unity for creating killer 3D Games
We went to a session on web hacking. It was a disasterous demo and the presenter stopped sharing his screen after 10 min. But he got just to talk for the rest 50 minutes. Neil is a Twitter security expert.
