Maya API Developers Conference: Day 2

Today was insanely amazing too. We started off the day the same as yesterday, and I met Dean Edmonds, the new API Developer for Maya. He is hilarious and very nice, and we are sharing his session tomorrow afternoon.

The lectures were awesome today, and we got some very useful information. The sessions today were:
  • Advanced Maya Python: Dean Edmonds, Autodesk
  • Enhancing the Maya Particle System through the API: Alex Ongaro, DreamWorks
  • FBX SDK: Viviane Rochon, Autodesk
  • Portable Maya Animation Caching: Rob Tesdhal, Cafe FX
This evening we went to the pool and then for the scavenger hunt. We didn't win unfortunately, but the people who won got a huge cool prize!

Then a reaaaaaaally fancy dinner on the patio deck around the pool, the food was amazing, the drinks were good, and the atmosphere was just great. We hung out for ages there, and then headed back to our rooms.
