SIGGRAPH is quickly approaching. It takes place August third thru August seventh in New Orleans. This is the ?highest quality, most timely educational experiences the community has to offer, presented by the most powerful and most engaging leaders in computer graphics and interactive techniques,? according to the SIGGRAPH Web site.
I am attending for Pearson, the parent company of Addison-Wesley, Prentice Hall, Sams Publishing, Que Publishing, PeachPit, and others. At the event in New Orleans, I will be posting videos and tweeting from the show floor. Keep up to date with these by following my Twitter account (@prebynski) and viewing the InformIT SIGGRAPH page during the event.
