Next month I'm heading to Vancouver for the Canadian Game Developers Conference (GDC). This will be the first conference I've gone to on my own, paid for by myself and I'm really excited about it. I've been to a few programming and industry related conferences for my work in the past, but this will be the first time I'm going to one on my own accord. I've really enjoyed the experience of past conferences so it will be great to learn more about one of my passions. I've always been enthusiastic about games and have been tinkering with them for years. I'm sure my mom can recount many nights back when I was a teenager working late into the night hacking away at modding some computer game and waking her up with the sound of our 14.4 baud modem connecting to the internet. I haven't had the spare time to continue developing games lately, but it's about time I re-ignite that passion. So GDC here I come!

The conference is happening mid week right before my birthday on the 12th and 13th. So I'll be in Vancouver for two days and then back home for my birthday which I've booked off work. It's looking like a great week considering I have the GDC, my birthday and 3 days off work. There will be plenty of time and opportunities to snap some photos with my new camera too.

Very cool!

Also, there are WAY too many "GDC" conferences. This is the fourth one I've heard about.
