Call for Applic­a­tions: Fully Sponsored Gam­ing Training with Intel

1 Comment

This past weekend at the inaugural Intel Gaming Challenge, Nairobi gamers got to spend an entire day playing both international games and local games Ma3 Racer by Planet Rackus and African Legends by Leti Games.

We want to see the Kenyan gaming community move beyond simply consuming content developed elsewhere and into developing high quality games with both local and international appeal. We want to see more success stories, and we’re willing to support the creation of these success stories.


It is for this reason that Intel is launching a fully sponsored 6 week gaming training. 90 lucky developers have the chance to learn how to develop Android Games optim­ized to run on the Intel Platform, via training on the Havok gaming engine, a complete game engine solution for creating innovative games from start to finish.  The pro­gram offers par­ti­cipants step-​by-​step train­ing through the devel­op­ment of com­plete games.

Who should Attend?
The course is aimed at any­one who has a great game idea, but who lacks the oppor­tun­ity, skills or exper­i­ence to be able to turn their idea into reality.

Par­ti­cipants must have pre­vi­ous exper­i­ence pro­gram­ming in either C++ or Java and be avail­able to par­ti­cip­ate in a 6 week full time fully sponsored program.

Com­pet­i­tion and Prizes
At the end of the train­ing we will hold a Hack­a­thon and reward the win­ning game developers.

  • 1st Prize - Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Inch device with Intel Inside
  • 2nd Prize - Asus Fonepad with Intel Inside.

Dates and Time
22nd Octo­ber 2013– 16th Decem­ber 2013
From 9: 00 am to 5:00 pm

The training will be run at 3 centres: Strathmore University, the University of Nairobi (Chiromo Campus), and eMobilis Technology Training Academy (Westlands).  Register here to participate, indicating your preferred venue.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS FRIDAY 18TH OCTOBER 2013. Register now to guarantee your slot!

    Will they be giving out the havoc game engine for free, or will it be used for training purposes only…
