The Games Institute acknowledges that we are living and working on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron (also known as Neutral), Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.
Allen Bevans, User Experience (UX) Research Manager for Stadia at Google, presented "Building User Experiences for a cloud-native gaming platform" for Dr. Lennart Nacke's Design and User Experience of Interactive Games class, DAC 305.
Allen Bevans provided insights gained from his experience working as a games user researcher and UX researcher first at Electronic Arts, then Google play, to his current position with Google Stadia, the cloud gaming platform.
