    Do not lose this contract - key contract terms for producers of video games

    At a certain stage of the game's production, each developer will have to deal with the preparation of the contract with investor or publisher. Whether we like it or not, the incorrect or unclear wording of some provisions may be a shadow not only of the success of a given production, but also of the company's future. That is why it is worth knowing the most important problems that appear in contracts regarding the production of games, among others related to the reception of work, mechanisms for settling remuneration, contractual penalties, licensing of intellectual property and the choice of jurisdiction. Prelegent: dr Marcin Balicki, chairman of the Intellectual Property Section in Allerhand Institute.

    B Wall - Creating for Mixed Reality with a cloud in the background

    Holograms are no longer a song of a distant future, which we usually admire in Star Wars movies. They are here and now! Microsoft has enabled us to mix reality with holograms thanks to HoloLens goggles, Windows Mixed Reality platform and provided programming tools. In addition, the functionalities available on the Microsoft Azure platform are able to expand the range of Mixed Reality capabilities. During the lecture, the whole ecosystem will be presented, in which such solutions are created and how to start working with it.
