Months and months of effort by over 100 students, staff, and administration, along with hundreds of industry professionals participating as panelists, expo members, and career fair recruiters, is finally coming to fruition!
We will have heavy weights like John Lilly, CEO of Mozilla, and Peter Moore, President of EA Sports as our keynotes, as well as 10 panels discussing everything about digital media and entertainment. The Expo will feature 17 companies with a first ever "Demo Day" where companies such as NeuroSky will demonstrate some of their new and cool technologies.
The first ever >play Career Fair will feature 9 very diverse and exciting companies, ranging from big/established companies such as Microsoft, AT&T, Yahoo, and Sybase, to startups such as Zynga and StumbleUpon, to gaming stalwarts such as LucasArts and Sony Playstation, to the unique, fun, and innovative Frog Design (for those of you who don't know, they are the equivalent of IDEO in the design world).
All this packed in one busy day! Stay tuned for pictures, tweets, and lots of excitement!
