[This post has been imported from my blogspot blog, where it looked a bit misplaced to me considering the fact that I post my ramblings there. Besides, this does the job of first tech-post that I needed to write. For sanity’s sake, I have kept the same publishing date as on the original post. A few enhancements have been made to the post. Have fun.]
I’ve got back from InPyCon’2010. Was my first time being to a Technology Convention, and not too bad an experience. Although I had expected it to be at a different level thinking that this is The PyCon (meaning the International version) but being what it actually was, it was fine, I must say.
Needless to say, being the love of my life; graphics, animation and UX if brought together, I don’t think there is anything more interesting and intriguing to me as a technologist. And that was precisely what happened at InPyCon. (Actually, this was the only interesting part of the conention I actually enjoyed)
There were two things which I came across today which have got me fantasizing (don’t get the wrong idea 😉 ) and kept me awake at 3 in the morning (this can explain how excited I am!) writing this blog post. 🙂
I’ve uploaded this video to make some sense out of all the gibberish I’ve been shooting till now (think: low cost VR and touch panels 🙂 ).
The other presentation that I really had fun at was the one about 3D Game development in Blender which is a Python based gaming-engine-cum-IDE. Think about it. Free. Open source. And allows you to build 3D games. And did I mention that you don’t need to write code for that? That’s right, my friend!
I’m definitely gonna get my hands dirty with it. (Takes a while to get acquainted with the tools, I hear, but nevertheless, worth a shot all the same!) 🙂
Enjoy!! Post comments. I, in the meanwhile, will try to get things moving in the direction where I can put all this knowledge to good use.
Ciao for now!
