Talk Description

Ignite is a fast-paced geek event started by Brady Forrest, Technology Evangelist for O’Reilly Media, and Bre Pettis of Makerbot.com, formerly of MAKE Magazine. Speakers are given 20 slides, each shown for 15 seconds, giving each speaker 5 minutes of fame. The first Ignite took place in Seattle in 2006, and since then the event has become an international phenomenon.

In this fast paced talk, I attempt to distill just why games are so powerful and why everyone should understand the fundamentals of game design.

“What all games have in common is that they’re patterns…and it turns out that our brains love patterns.”

Wondering why your company should learn about game design?
