NVScene 2014 is the follow-up event to the very first NVScene, held in 2008 during the NVIDIA NVISION event, also held at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. We're back, and we are very excited about it!
What is the demoscene?
The demoscene is a electronic art subculture that specializes in producing demos, which are audio-visual presentations that run in real-time on a computer. The main purpose of a demo is to show off the combined effort of programming, graphical artistic and musical skills.
There are over a hundred demoscene events arranged all over the world every year, featuring competitions in which individuals or groups of individuals compete by trying to make the most visually or technologically impressive production.
