I have just attended a very interesting meetup. It was organised by Rovio to celebrate their another million downloads of Angry Birds 2. It was a great experience and I have an interesting story that I wanted to share, so I decided to share it with in quick post.
In the morning, me and most of our classmates have attended the Armada event. There were many companies out there, however I was quite disappointed because I could not find the projects that were more relevant to my field of studies. Nevertheless, I gathered the rest of my energy and went to the Rovio event in the evening. I went to the event as a fun of Angry Birds title and a person who likes game industry as a whole. There was many companies and people from game industry, I would say there were mostly companies and people from game industry. However I was lucky enough to meet CEO of the startup which is working with virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). These are the topics of the highest interest to me and are closely related to my studies. I have shared my experience with with AR development, so the CEO proposed me to do my internship or master thesis with them. And this is the great opportunity for me.
