We’ve announced the finalists for the AltDev Student Showcase already, but we keep talking about the expert judges who are going to be giving their feedback and deciding who will be going home with the Grand Prizes that Unity Technologies have put up. So, it’s time to introduce the judges!
We’ve got an exciting array of talent and a diverse spread of skills and experience lined up to tell our competitors exactly what they think of their projects. We’re going to be running two sessions of the Student Showcase, one on each day of the AltDev Student Summit, and we’ll be changing the panel completely between sessions.
