I had a great opportunity a few weeks ago to discuss gaming in the Triangle with Chris Perrien on WXDU, Duke University’s noncommercial radio station (Chris also runs Blue Pane Studio, which created this blog).
His show on Feb. 13, aptly named Science in the Triangle, was the first in a series of interviews he’ll be doing on science and technology in Research Triangle Park.
This has been an exciting field to cover over the last year or so, and I’ve definitely learned a lot about why the Triangle area is the gaming’s industry’s No. 2 spot for production. More than 40 companies and 1,000 employees calling the area home.
Check out the interview in three parts here:
You can also subscribe to WXDU’s podcasts on iTunes.
I mentioned a few resources for people looking to get into the local game industry, including the Triangle Game Initiative. You can also find more information for the upcoming East Coast Game Conference, which runs April 13-14 at the Raleigh Convention Center. For job-seekers, there’s also the International Game Developers Association, a nonprofit professional organization with a Triangle chapter.
