Computing: GameDev Society Officer

Hey,

I'm the current DoCSoc GameDev Officer 2018-19 and I would like to be re elected for next year so I can build upon my experience having run the society for a year and improve upon it.

This year, I have organised Academic and Social events such as the Game AI workshop, Health Hack and the V and A Game museum trip and I plan to expand upon what I have done this year with Weekend Game Jams as a focus.

Another key focus, would be collaborating with the other Game Development Society at Imperial, through shared weekly meetings to hopefully publish a joint game.
I will also push for greater publicity for Game Development at Imperial by making a Imperial Game Development website and more events such as talks by the Games Industry.

The greatest challenge that I faced this year was making the GameDev society game as it was essentially another group project on top of all the coursework computing students have to do.
I will try to mitigate this challenge by making Game Dev game simpler in scope and reduce the learning curve for the technologies required to make it as that was the primary bottleneck.

Thanks for reading,
Athi Dharma
