Here we are again for the third time! Iconic *Demobit* will open its gates to members and enthusiasts of the phenomenon called the *demoscene*!
In the early ’80s, the first computer freaks laid down foundations of the community which has gradually developed to the international digital art underground movement. Small regular meetings grew to the several days’ parties – demoparties – full of competitions measuring coding, graphics and musical skills, completed by seminars, workshops, socialization, and party all nights!
Demobit has always connected creative young individuals, important personalities of the IT community, computer graphics experts, game developers, and mainly friendly and open-minded people. The success is about to provide to its guests an exceptional hospitality, unique community atmosphere, sophisticated discussions, and unpredictable fun, all in it!
For the third time of the new history of the Demobit event, now under the title ‘Resolution’, the organizers and partners cordially invite anyone interested in computer graphics creativity and exclusive social experiences.
