Representing Digital Arts & Entertainment
Every year, the school picks a few top students to represent the school at Brain’s Eden. This year, together with 9 other students, I got the opportunity to do this. We made 2 teams of 5 people with a good balance of programmers and artists
The first team’s name was The Dangerous Arcade Elitists. The programmers were Thomas Kole, Leah Lindner and Thomas de Mulder. The artist side was covered by Nicolas Pirot and Ewout de Vos.
The second team, my team was called DA Eden. We had 2 artists: Samuel de Vos and Sander vander Meiren. I did the programming together with Jonathan Steyfkens and Leo van Steenkiste.
Brain’s Eden was an amazing experience and opportunity where I met great people from the industry.
