The WorldForge project aims to bring professional quality 
Open Source software to the games industry, an area still
dominated by proprietary technology. The very fast pace of
technological progress and the need for creative as well as
technical expertise makes this industry very hard to break 
into. By developing reusable technology and open standards 
members have built a solid base for anyone seeking to develop 
Open Source games, but delivering a product while keeping up
with the ever changing expectations of the gaming community 
has proved to be quite a challenge.

Al Riddoch, a WorldForge developer, will be coming from 
Southampton to talk about the project.
