AMD opens Second Life pavilion

Virtual site for meetings & training

AMD has become the latest technology firm to embrace Second Life, setting up a new pavilion designed for developers in the virtual 3D world.

The company said AMD Dev Central Pavilion provides a virtual space for meetings, lectures, training courses and networking opportunities. AMD has added incentives for visitors by challenging them to take part in a three-month treasure hunt in a bid to win a Dell PC.

"The Second Life metaverse is a gathering place for both new and established developers," said Paul Nolte, AMD project manager and contributing builder for the AMD Developer Central Second Life Pavilion. "Through the interactive virtual experience at the pavilion, we hope to provide developers with an outlet to learn and grow. Additionally, the treasure hunt and future developer challenges provide a creative outlet for developers to express their unique abilities."

The first event at the AMD Dev Central Pavilion will take place on Sunday, 25 February, with prominent members of the SL Open Source movement set to speak about the challenges and opportunities presented by an Open Second Life.
