The Game Developers Conference is going on this week. A very awesome ex-coworker of mine lent me their pass so I had the chance to check out a couple sessions and walk the expo floor today. I won’t mention the girls working the N-Gage booth at all because it would be inappropriate of me. The two sessions I went to were quite good (as opposed to previous years’ sessions) and the IGF booth was cool to check out (as always).
Since I’ve been working in the industry for several years now I saw many familiar faces and chatted with a couple people I haven’t seen for a long time. This is much different from 4 years ago when I knew no one. It’s a good feeling.
I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Unity3d team and going to their party. It was strange when we first showed up because no one was there but after the food showed up people materialized and it turned out to be a good time.
All in all, GDC has been great this year. Just wish the N-Gage girls would have thrown a party.
