You are invited to a GCU masterclass with Boyd Multerer, the man responsible for Xbox Live, the gaming and entertainment service now used by more than 46 million people worldwide. 

The former Microsoft employee was also behind XNA programming, which allowed independent designers to develop games for the Xbox 360 console.

More recently, Boyd founded and led the team that worked on the Xbox One operating system, which went on to win a Technical Emmy and a Microsoft Technical Achievement Award.

After almost 20 years at Microsoft, Boyd left in December 2014 and is now working on an as yet unannounced project. 

Boyd will visit GCU on Tuesday, May 12 to talk about lessons learned from Xbox and his predictions for the future of gaming. He will focus on the importance of anticipating changes in technology and culture, and forecasting how they will change in future years. 

Light refreshments will be served in the Garden Café in the Govan Mbeki Building after the masterclass.
