Yes, I play games, but that is not all I am looking at. Have you ever wondered who came up with the idea for that story line? Who pitched the idea to start your favorite gaming company? What developers helped create the genius that we see on our screens? because I do. Attending #LVPASW gives me a chance to do just that! I get to witness ideas being thrown back and forth. Teams of developers, designers, creators, and students working together to create the next up and coming startups.
Last year at Lehigh Valley Hackathon an event to create up and coming apps, I witnessed the growth and development of a startup company called MenuGenie. Menu Genie lets us order online and search our local restaurants for free, and sends, confirms, and monitors, our delivery to make sure we got our food exactly the way we ordered it.I saw it happen! Now imagine: your favorite YouTuber gets famous, and you start claiming to your friends that you watched his channel before he got famous, so you are a true fan, its the same concept, you were part of something from the start.
I like to be at the edge of technology and progress,knowing about things before everyone else. I mean don’t you just love knowing what games are being released ahead of time? Yeah I thought so, me too! So next time you are wondering what kind of events you should start going to, make startup weekends and hackathons part of your learning experience!
