Vancouver was Kung Fu Fighting
Part of Vancouver Interactive Digital Week, Digital Kung Fu 2 is a one-day intensive professional development seminar delivered by industry experts. Kick-start, augment and accelerate your digital ideas into realizable apps, services (or products) and start-ups." - DKF
The Centre for Digital Media is a converted multimedia facility at Vancouver's Great Northern Way Campus that is a collaborative university campus environment between UBC, SFU, Emily Carr University of Art & Design, and BCIT. An impressive little building that is a collection of Canada's best. The Centre offers a Masters Program in Digital Media.
I learned a lot about the BC Game Industry scene the night before the Centre's event at the first Vancouver Indie Game Developer Meetup. Seems Vancouver has a growing gaming (pro & indie) community with game and new media studios popping up everywhere. More big game companies are opening offices in the BC area. Makes sense that the tone of DKF2 would be heavy into gaming.

3. Augmented Reality - What's up with that
I was honored to be asked to lead this panel and present with mixed reality experts that are doing amazing work. The theme of our panel was Augmented Reality but not in regards to the technology, but how we as humans augment our reality with digital data that we view and interact with in a variety of ways.
I thank my fellow panelists and Dennis for putting together a panel that many came up after and said was very informative and inspiring. Digital Kung Fu 2 was an action packed day full of information, great networking, and top of the line technology demonstrations that are being developed in Canada.
