Siggraph 2012 (in LA) was awesome. Just…awesome. My (too few) 18 hours of volunteer work for the organisation, added to the tons of great hours I spent watching dailies, attending conferences and courses, wandering in the exhibition hall, gathering goodies were just absolutely great, in every part (or should I say pixel).
If I had anything to tell to the people who have never attended a SIGGRAPH conference before, it’s only ”GO! DO IT!” Because it’s soooo worth it! I have learned more (stuff about professional work) in a week at siggraph than during months in school, where they put you in this little comfy little learning space. Siggraph was a jungle of raw knowledge, professional social gathering, parties, (more parties), experiences with new softwares and plugins, new technologies, combined with art… 😀
