November GameDevDrinkUps

Hi All-

We're at it again, our next GameDevDrinkUp - but this time we have a few announcements to share. We've partnered with Twitch.tv, a growing video game broadcasting and chat community. They'll be providing the first 50 drinks to attendees at the LA and SF event each month. Head to their site and take a look around. We're happy to have them on board! 

 

Additionally, we're moving south! Our first Dallas chapter will lift off this Thursday, headed by Drew Marlowe. Have friends/colleagues in the Dallas/Fort Worth area? Spread the word and help our latest addition blossom into what our LA and SF chapters have become. 

One thing attendees enjoy time and time again are our raffles. We're always looking for donations such as video games, movies, books, etc. If you would like to contribute, please contact the appropriate chapter's point person (contact info below).

IGDA Leadership Forum Mixer

 

The IGDA leadership forum is the premier event for producers, team leaders, project managers, studio directors, and all others seeking to learn and share techniques for leading teams in creating successful games.

They will be having a mixer on Wednesday October 26th from 6:30pm - 10:30pm to kick off the leadership forum.  http://www.igda.org/leadership/us201/lf11-us-schedule/

Here is some more info about the conference:

The IGDA, in coordination with its Production SIG, is hosting the fifth annual IGDA Leadership Forum US at a brand new venue near LAX in Los Angeles, CA!

The conference traditionally focuses on advancing the state of the art in game production and management, and will encompass a broad range of leadership topics.

Sessions will run in parallel tracks and will consist of a mix of lectures, panels, and interactive workshop sessions, with an inspiring keynote to start and end both days.  Those seeking to learn and share techniques for leading teams in creating successful games will find this conference invaluable.  In addition, sponsored parties and other networking opportunities will provide many opportunities to connect.

To make sure 2011′s IGDA Leadership Forum US is the best one yet, your committee is currently dedicated to finding high quality speakers from various companies around the world.
In past years, we welcomed 300-400 delegates from over 12 countries, including the UK, Finland, Sweden and Australia.
