Unreal Happenings in Finland and Sweden This Week

By Andy Hess

Unreal Engine Evangelist Sjoerd “Hourences” De Jong will be hosting a number of Unreal Engine events this week. Catch up with us at the Turku IGDA gathering and the Swedish Game Awards conference.

The Turku IGDA chapter meetings on Thursday, April 23rd from 17.00 and onward. Sjoerd will give a presentation on Unreal Engine 4 at Mauno, located at Tykistökatu 6, 20520 Turku, Finland.

On Saturday the 25th of April, Sjoerd will attend the Swedish Game Awards conference, in Stockholm, which we’re sponsoring again this year. His 2014 presentation on UE4 Blueprints in Solus was a big hit, and so we’re sending him to speak again. Be sure to turn up for his latest Unreal Engine 4 talk if you’ll be there.

The conference will be held at Södertörns högskola, Alfred Nobels Allé 7, Flemingsberg, 141 89 Huddinge, Sweden.

During both presentations Sjoerd will demonstrate UE4 features through building a game live onstage, talking through Blueprints, the material editor, and even newer features like our 2D toolset.

Both events are free to attend, and attendees are asked to register here for the Turku presentation and here for the Swedish Game Awards. Registration for SGA closes on Wednesday at 10pm CET, so be sure to sign up today!
