Twenty Years after Doom: John Carmack on the Future of Engineering Virtual Worlds
On Friday, April 25, 2014 at 4:00 PM CST, John Carmack will speak at Southern Methodist University.
Carmack co-founded id Software where he built the graphics engines powering Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake, each of which revolutionized the gaming industry.
Named to the MIT Technology Review’s 35 Under 35, Time Magazine’s 50 Most Influential People in Technology, and inducted into the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame, John’s contributions and commitment to fostering open-source communities has inspired a generation of young people to become computer scientists and engineers.
Now, as the Chief Technology Officer of Oculus VR, he works on the Rift with the goal of once again revolutionizing the way we experience games.
The event is free and open to the public and RSVP is not needed, so please join us to hear from one of the most important technologists of the modern era, as he takes questions from the audience, reflects on his life, and discusses the future of interactive entertainment.
