So today my local IGDA chapter held a sort of Breaking Into the Industry event thingy at a local college. It was pretty cool. I got to sit on a panel with some of the other experienced industry vets in the chapter and answer questions from the audience. We had a pretty good turn out - prob close to 50 people, even some kids that looked like they were from high school. They didn't ask many questions though. Young fools. Of course I handled the programming panel discussion, along with a fellow programmer Nick from Gameloft. It was a fun time, I'd definetly do it again. Hopefully we'll be able to post a video of the event online.
In other news, I've made leaps and bounds on my GUI. Finally got the scrollbars all programmed out. Still have some trouble using boost::bind to get the callbacks working properly, but I'll have to save that for tomorrow. Tonight I cleaned out all the errors except the boost problem, so I just have to fix that and I can test this stuff out. Yey.
