Sheridan IMM Alumni TVO Ping Pong App Makes iTunes Front

February 1, 2013

Sheridan IMM TVO Ping Pong mobile app

Sheridan Alumni – David Neumann (2004), Paul McMonagle (2010) and Yohei Yamaguchi (2012) worked on the TVO Ping Pong App available in the iTunes app store at https://t.co/JfyZtoua.  The app was featured on iTunes Canada and has received over 10,000 downloads.  Congratulations!

Neumann is Manager – TVO IdeaShaker Innovation Lab and also teaches Web Design and Development in the IMM program.  He reports that the alumni created the idea for the app, the game play, interactivity and prototyped a proof of concept.  They also created HTML5 banner ads and other campaign assets.  The team including other IMM grads have made apps for TVO (http://ww3.tvo.org/apps) but in this case, due to campaign timing, the final development was outsourced.  What an exciting concept to play ping pong between two players with devices as paddles.

Sheridan Interactive Multimedia Grad Update – Cam at Disney, Club Penguin

February 19, 2011

Sheridan Interactive Multimedia Grad at Disney Club Penguin

Just sent off a little “hello, what’s up – any news for a grad-update blog post?” message to Cam Warnock, IMM 2006 and here a response that is always nice to get 😉

Hey Dan,

Well the last little while has been really busy. My wife and I just moved to Kelowna, BC after I got a position at Disney Online Studios. I’m an AS3 programmer on their Club Penguin product. Club Penguin is a MMO for kids where you create your own penguin and and then proceed to play games, chat, complete quests, take care of pets, etc.. It’s a really great gig! You can find out more at http://www.clubpenguin.com/

Before that I had been going full tilt on developing iPhone apps at Indusblue. I was the lead programmer on apps for CTV, Rogers, MTV, Much Music and CityNews. It was a really hectic year, but I gained a lot experience wise.

Here are some links for the apps I’ve worked on;

MTV 10 Spot – http://indusblue.com/portfolio/post/mtv_10_spot_iphone_app/
Much Concerts – http://indusblue.com/portfolio/post/muchconcerts_iphone_app/

Hope all is well. How’s program going these days?

Cheers,
Cam
