One of the things I love about PhillyTech Week is the opportunity to get to know different companies and learn about the unique ways in which they operate. Many companies have their own events, but the one this year was the Philly Tech Day. We talked to some of the students who attended the event and I learned a few things about them.
One of the students was an intern at Google, and she told me she had been a part of Google’s internal research team for several years, and she said that they were looking into how they could make their engineers more efficient. Google has been looking into the topic of making more efficient employees for a few years now, but they’ve only recently decided to start actually taking action.
In fact, it was Google that first started creating these internal efforts. In 2008 they launched a program called the “Google Academy” where they hired 100 engineers, and over the course of the first three years they brought in over 1,000 engineers with a total salary package of $30,000. The purpose of this is to have a place where people can get a taste of what working at Google is like.
Google has come a long way since 2008, but they still have a long way to go. The Academy has only had a few years of operation, and the first year it was created was so short that they were only able to hire 20 people. It’s also possible that Google decided in the early days to have only a couple of people be on it, and only hire more people later on.
If a new developer gets into a game and you’re going to be using it for something that’s really cool, then it’s probably just going to be a way to get a good feel for what’s going on.
In the case of Philly Tech, the game (which is still in alpha) has been a way for developers and their friends to talk and build something together and see where it all goes. It started with a group of developers from PhillyTech and the game’s first game developer, and by the looks of it, it is slowly expanding.
There is an underlying idea that a game needs a few weeks to really get into full swing and ramp up the features before the game is going to be ready for press. It would be great if this thing were to go down in a few weeks.
Which is cool. The developers are making philly tech week and it is going to be the best Philly Tech week ever. We were invited to a developer event as well as a demo, the new game. It was great to be part of it.
I’m not sure what it means that Philly Tech week is being played by people who are from the northeast, but it was fun to go. It was a quick three hour demo for the game and I didn’t get to go to the developer event, but we got to play the demo. It was a fun weekend, a great opportunity to meet the folks at philly tech, and I’m sure to see them work hard over the coming week.
Philly Tech Week is a three-day developers conference. The city of Philadelphia hosts it every year. The event is held in the downtown district of Midtown, but it can be held in other areas as well. I know Philly Tech is a great place to learn about game development. I think Philly Tech is really important to bring together people from various backgrounds and meet potential game developers.
