Student Showcase

Students are invited to participate in the Student Showcase, an exhibition of student work. These admissions will be viewed and judged by a group of local developers as well as our guest speakers. The Student Showcase will run for two days, with students either demonstrating between 1 to 2 days. More information can be found at the link below.

Network

Previous year's event proved to be a successful networking moment for OHINKY (Ohio-Indiana-Kentucky) developers, and this years event promises to be much the same. Time is set aside for demonstration of games, but there is no expo hall floor. This means that you will have a chance to engage with developers one on one, rather than spending energy on self-promotion to a public audience.

workshops

Workshops

At Vector there is an opportunity to workshop with industry leaders and educators. Day 1 of Vector will be focused on intro workshops for Unity and other technologies, and day 2 will be focused on more advanced workshops on Unity and multiplayer cloud technology, to name a few.
