Exhibitors from more than 56 countries and about 370.000 visitors came to gamescom 2018 in Cologne this month. Prior to the gamescom, SMS digital and SMS group took part in the prestigious game developers event devcom.
During various presentations and discussions with several developers, we learned that the trends of the gaming industry are even relevant for the metal industry. Virtual and augmented reality or even artificial intelligence do not only apply to gaming, but also to production in times of Industrie 4.0. For example, the programming language (c#) is an established standard in both industries.
Full-Stack developer Marc talks about his experiences @devcom:
“Game developers are often unaware that their skills are valuable outside of the gaming industry. We talked to a lot of talented developers who were excited to learn that other industries can offer them new opportunities to apply e.g. their skills in virtual or augmented reality.”
