EGX 2014 – Trip reflection. (25/09/2014)
Today we went to the gaming convention that is known as EGX in London, as a gaming convention goes it was a brilliant day out and I am sure I will be attending EGX yearly now. We visited the developer stalls whilst at EGX to ask a few questions and understand what it takes to get into the gaming industry. Furthermore I spoke to industry professionals all over the convention floor from companies like Xbox, Twitch, Jagex and PlayStation which was a real asset for me to understand what it takes to get into the career that I want to get into, overall EGX was an amazing event but also eye opening as to what it’s going to take to get the dream job I want.
On another hand I spoke to one of the lead community managers at Jagex, the company that has created games like Runescape and Transformers Universe. I asked her some questions about becoming a community manager and what skills, qualifications I need to be able to get into the business and she gave me some really good, productive feedback.
