In a partnership between Hybrid World Adelaide (HWA) and MOD., US game programmer Amie D Dansby (Amie DD) visits Australia where she will be a speaker at Hybrid World Adelaide (HWA) and MOD.
Joining her on the line-up at the Adelaide Convention Centre from 21-22 July is Steven ‘Bajo’ O’Donnell, who will return to deliver a specialist Twitch workshop after a popular appearance last year.
Amie DD is co-founder of ATAT Tech, a robotics, augmented reality and video game development company based in Texas.
She has worked across both PlayStation and Xbox, and has long been a strong advocate for diversity in the technology industry.
Through the National Videogame Museum in Texas, she created a scholarship for girls wanting to focus on science, technology, electronics or mathematics (STEM) studies.
Amie encourages others to experiment and learn by trying, making mistakes, and trying again. It’s a philosophy she lives by, saying “there’s no such thing as failure, only learning experiences”.
