There seriously is an achievement for attending the Gamification Summit in June, and listening to its impressive lineup of speakers — which today has been announced to include such industry visionaries as Jeffrey Ma and Richard Bartle. If you participate in the GSummit Gamification Workshops with these and other presenters, you can receive “a certification in gamified design.” Also, you get 125 gamerscore.
From today’s press release:
New speakers that will take to the GSummit stage to discuss the latest in techniques for engaging employees and customers in the new economy include Tim Vandenberg, one of the world’s top-ranked Monopoly players and inspiring educator; Richard Bartle, renowned game designer and professor; Jeffrey Ma, card game expert and protagonist of the book Bringing Down the House and movie 21; and more. GSummit organizers have also revealed that the hands-on Gamification Workshops featuring experts Gabe Zichermann and Mario Herger are nearly sold out with fewer than a dozen confirmable spots remaining.
So, get on that!
