If you happen to be an educator going to SIGGRAPH Asia this year, then you are in for a treat. The Khronos Group announces their first-ever KITE event geared towards educators. While our DevU events in the past have been successful at helping developers get familiar with our APIs, at this years DevU for Educators, the goal will be to provide you with the insight and understanding you need in order to include Khronos technologies in your teaching curriculum. Including this cutting-edge material in your classes will give your graduating students an edge – the same skills and proficiencies the industry's recruiters are looking for in new engineers. All the details are available on the Khronos event page.
If you prefer to get your news through social media outlets, like Facebook and Twitter, the Khronos Group can be found there too! We've got our main Twitter account and Facebook page covering OpenCL, OpenGL, WebGL and COLLADA. We've got a good selection of videos from our various shows on YouTube as well.
