I was just wondering if Siggraph is a good place to go job hunting in the game industry?
I am planning to go to San Diego the end of next month, but the only game company on the list of exhibitors so far is EA. I missed E3, but will have a new demo in time for July.
So Siggraph seems the next best thing, seeing how the faculty at my school worships it and we have to submit our thesis to it. I want it to be a worthwhile trip.
It seems like the conference is shrinking though and that companies are going there more to show than look. The GDC in London seems more interesting to me. But I've never been, so what do I know?
So, is it worth the money to go? What would everyone recommend?
