In several days, I shall be flying down to San Francisco to attend the Game Developers Conference. I’ll again be a behind-the-scenes volunteer as I was in 2006 and 2008. This means I’ll spend the vast majority of the week working to ensure that the developers who attend GDC have a pleasant conference experience. The conference runs from 9th – 13th March, but I’ll be there a bit earlier for Conference Associate training, and leave a bit later so I can attend the debriefing meeting at the end of the conference. If my work schedule permits, I’ll also attend any sessions relevant to my professional interests. In short, this means that there are no guarantee that I’ll actually be able to attend all those cool sessions I’ve read about. If I’m lucky I might be working at some of the more interesting ones, but again, there are no guarantees.
If you’re going to GDC, I may see you there, though if you want to try and arrange a meet-up ahead of time, please let me know! I’m already committed to social activities on two, possibly three of my evenings thus far, and at least two day time meet-ups. I’m looking forward to meeting friends, old and new.
