Here is how to programme a game on a QUANTUM computer. Yep, you read that right! That's already happening.

So if you are into video #gaming, or #quantum mechanics, or programming, or just curious how you can use all of this, read on 😀
I spoke to @IBM folks in Zurich who are giving a crowd of game developers & just enthusiasts an opportunity to use IBM's 16-qubit quantum computer to design games.

They'll be doing it next weekend in Helsinki, in a *sauna* & on a Ferris wheel in sub-zero temp (don't ask me why)
So how do you design, say, Battleship on a quantum computer? Here goes:

You have to use Qiskit – short for Quantum Information Science Kit – the open source framework launched in 2017 and based on IBM's quantum computing programme, Q Experience

We need to talk about applying for game dev jobs - I get a lot of CV and emails though about work and I am seeing the same mistakes again and again. Here are my super top 10 tips on what to do and what not to do when applying for jobs, especially entry level – #gamedev #gamejobs
1 – Introduce your self! - When you send an initial email, tell me who you are! What’s your name where do you come from WHATS YOUR SPECIALITY. I get many emails just asking if there are any ‘jobs’ going. If we are not advertising please tell me what you do!
2 – Put your best foot forward - “I am a writer/concept artist/animator” Are you really? Please think long and hard about this one. Chances are you excel in one area. I have yet to meet anyone who excels at more than one discipline that hasn't got 10/20+ years experience

Hello, everyone!

We're going to kickstart our weekly #GlobalEChats discussion thread. This week, we'll talk about #fitness #personal #trainer as #entrepreneurs and how #tech can change everything!

Ready? Let's go!
Let's first start with two possibilities in the future.

1. We no longer need humans as #PT personal trainers at the #gym or #field. All will be replaced by #tech and smart applications! 😲

2. Human PTs will still be demanded but will utilise #tech to improve their coaching!
Do you think #1 is truly possible? It seems a bit far-fetched, no?

Meet @ollinfit! Ollinfit is a set of three wearable sensors and smartphone app that work together as your personal trainer. Say what???

Using Ollinfit, you'll be able to workout without needing human coaching!

As a journalist who has worked with #gaming and #eSports as a subject (though not exclusively), I want to recommend to other journalists one thing: when talking about the gamer public/majority opinion, e.g. "gamers were upset about x", give examples of threads that support that.
If you're going to tell people that an opinion is widely accepted or something is believed by "a majority of gamers" you must give a timeline of that belief. Show different sources, different voices, different public figures who hold that belief. Show people believing it!
You can't just assume an opinion is de facto accepted, and that acceptance is widely known. If you want to say something like "the majority of the x gamer community feels y" you either SHOW that belief or you admit you're peddling stereotypes, lies, and exaggeration.

As a deaf gamer I see a fair amount of #gamedevelopment questions asking how #gamedev's can support the #deaf and #HardofHearing folk.

I've got a few ideas and of course anyone else with ideas can reply to this or share it.

• Directional Waveform HUD

A toggle feature which could hover over the player. Whichever way the audio is coming from the waveform reacts. Would be no different to hearing directional footsteps. Perhaps a The Division tracking HUD for inspiration?

Example with #Fortnite
• Vignette Cues

Could get mistaken for health depletion, but this could indicate sound in specific games. Perhaps a horror/thriller.

An example in the bottom left, ideally, it would follow the audio around the screen. Although maybe not in front of the player.
