Sneak Peek: SIGGRAPH Interview Series

rob-garrott-hero-WEB

Last week I went to the SIGGRAPH conference in Vancouver with Rob Garrott, the Content Manager for all of the lynda.com training in Video Production and Visual Effects.

SIGGRAPH is one of the oldest running conferences in the computer graphics industry. Each year graphics pros from all over the world gather to exchange ideas and demonstrate new techniques and products. 

While I was exploring the SIGGRAPH show floor, Rob was busy interviewing some of the visual artists at the conference—folks who specialize in visual effects, motion graphics, storyboarding, and 3D print design.

Here at SIGGRAPH, the international conference for computer graphics, animation, and interactive design, it’s really fun to walk the show floor and experience the new technology on display—especially 3D printing and motion capture.

I’m on the show floor this week at SIGGRAPH, and I’m seeing some really exciting technology.

SIGGRAPH is the annual computer graphics and animation conference, taking place this year in Vancouver, British Columbia. It’s really a playground for animators, digital artists, interactive experience designers, motion graphics designers, and video producers—and I want to share with you what I’m seeing here.

Android Wear: A New Age of Voice Control

Android_wear_2

I’ve just spent some time living the Android Wear lifestyle, and my big takeaway is that voice control is finally hitting prime time. In preparing our new course Up and Running with Android Wear (using the Samsung Gear Live smartwatch), I was excited to see voice control actually hitting the point where it’s both reliable and usable.

lynda.com Looks at Google I/O

google-io-conference

You don’t have to be a developer to get excited about the announcements to come out of the Google I/O last week. Though the conference is geared toward developers, Google I/O is the place to get a first look at future updates to the Android platform, Google Play store, Chromebook OS, and other fun gadgets.

At lynda.com, we’re excited to get our hands on the new tech—to collect all the information we can and distill it down to great training. Let’s take a look at conference high points to get an idea of what’s coming from Google.

Top group dinner shot, left to right: Some of the lynda.com production team, Andy Ta, Roon Tamuli, Nick Brazzi, Samara Iodice, Max Smith, and Andrew Geibel. Then it's Ian Robinson (author), Megan Read (me), Nigel French (author), and Nigel's friend. Center unicycle shots: the first and second photos are the multitalented author Ian Robinson, third photo is our own Nick Brazzi. Bottom group shot, left to right: Max, Nick, Deke McClelland (author), me, Robbie Carman (author).

Over the last two weeks, we’ve had authors from all over the place in our recording booths. Ian Robinson from Virginia was in-house recording some eye-catching new Motion 4 training, Nigel French was here all the way from the UK recording an interesting new InDesign typography course, and Michael Ninness was here from Seattle recording the must-see InDesign Power Shortcuts.

This week is another busy one at lynda.com! We’ve got Robbie Carman also from Virginia recording some brand spankin’ new Color 1.5 training, Anne-Marie Concepción in from Illinois recording a cool new course about marketing your business with Twitter and Facebook, and of course, Deke McClelland from Colorado recording handfuls of must-see Photoshop training.

Our authors are all hard-working professionals, but occasionally, they get to let their hair down at a nice dinner with their lynda-peeps, or let off some steam with a fun Friday lunch playing on unicycles in the parking lot. Yes, there are actually quite a few unicyclers here at lynda.com!

Enjoy the pix, and as always, the training!
