For the last few years, I’ve been working closely with Dstillery to develop a variety of consumer tools within the digital advertising space. As we collaborated with data scientists and engineers to create tools for their clients to manage and understand their audiences, it felt like a revamp of the corporate website would be in order. With every new product, we were enabling their customers the ability to effectively understand their data. We wanted to convey to potential customers that same feeling—data isn’t scary.

This year’s Pax West was definitely an exciting one! The ability to get not only one-on-one time with developers but actual hands-on time with each and every title in development is what sets Pax West apart from all other gaming conventions.
I got the chance to chat with a few indie developers about their upcoming titles as well as a couple of innovators who are making waves in 2016.
Whenever I walk into a hands-off meeting during E3, I never know what to expect. Especially when running late and having completely missed the overall introduction to the meeting. When I walked into an E3 demo with the Mojang developers, I was excited to see an opened text editor. This meant that we might be diving into some code and that honestly made me really happy!
CES kicks off every new year with the promise of new innovations and upgrades to existing consumer hardware. This year seemed to be the year for the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as the year to get your kids into programming. iLuv showed us how you can easily make a morning better with just a few connected products while the folks working on the upcoming title Moving Hazard show us that the zombie apocalypse can be tons of fun. Bartesian showed us how easy it can be to create quality drinks at home and, of course, Razer, SteelSeries, and MadCatz gave us a sneak peek at their gaming hardware.
