Wade Brainerd and Michael Vance, two senior game developers at Activision, are teaching a FREE workshop on video game development at Steel House South for teens and adults! No experience is necessary! We'll be using the PICO-8 Fantasy Console development environment.
Wade has been working at Activision for almost twenty years. He has worked on almost every piece of console hardware in that time, leading teams that provide the systems and rendering libraries used across multiple projects. He has provided technical leadership and innovation on the Call of Duty teams for the past several years. He grew up in Orono and lived in Los Angeles for many years before moving back to Maine a decade ago.
Michael has been working at Activision since 2001. In that time he has led the teams working on the Spider-Man games, and has been contributing primarily to Call of Duty for the better portion of the last decade, in the role of systems and rendering programmer. He grew up in Pennsylvania and lived in Los Angeles for a decade before moving to Maine.
