In hopes of giving attendees real and valuable information, Redmond, Wash.-based video game university DigiPen is hosting Kerry Davis, who has been working as a programmer at Valve for more than 15 years. Davis will talk about his unusual journey into the industry and share lessons learned from his time at Valve. The event is at DigiPen on Sept. 14.
