Presentation

Overview

This is a talk about what can happen when your only qualification is to make computer screens flash in interesting ways, and you get dragged off into grand schemes together with people smarter than yourself.

Having built graphics accelerators and helped put them in hundreds of millions of phones, launched the world’s smallest personal computer (unfortunately without putting it in more than a handful of homes), and joined a crusade to fix visual development tools once and for all – Remi still claims he’s never had a real job.

Objective

Show why you might want to give that startup a go. And learn something about the technology underneath all the creative work you do on web and mobile.

Target Audience

Anyone interested in pretty pixels, and anyone who ever considered joining/forming a startup.

Five things audience members will learn:

  1. Where mobile GPUs come from.
  2. A no-nonsense explanation of the (mostly) European demoscene.
  3. The future of visual development tools.
  4. Why you’ll never get rid of the hardcore geeks (and why you shouldn’t).
  5. Statistical proof that it’s good to be in the pixel business.
