[Event] Roundtable: GDC Tips

March 7, 2018 @ 2:00 am – 3:00 am UTC Timezone

We’re only a few weeks away from the 2018 Game Developers Conference. Many students who are attending GDC for the first time have questions about how to get the most out of the week, how to best network with people, and how to potentially find work.

If you’ve been to GDC before, this is your chance to share your knowledge and experience with others. This event is a discussion for both students and professionals who want to trade their best GDC tips and also learn a few things.

Location: We’ll be hosting this roundtable on our Discord server on the voice chat channel called “Virtual Roundtables.” If you don’t have a mic or headset, you can still interact over text chat on the text-based channel “#roundtables.”

Date & Time: Tuesday, March 6th, at 6:00pm PST. The event will last 90 minutes. Feel free to arrive late or leave early.

What is a Roundtable?

A roundtable is a format for hosting discussions with a large group of people. You may be familiar with it if you’ve ever been to one of the roundtable events at GDC. Participants are encouraged to speak openly, bring up questions, and contribute to each other’s points, while a moderator keeps the conversation organized and on track.

The goal of this event is to allow chapter leaders to share tips with each other on how to best run their communities. This is a great opportunity to see how other chapters do things and to get help with any problems that your chapter may be experiencing.

Who is allowed to attend?

This event is open to anyone who’s interested. The intended audience is anyone who helps run an IGDA academic chapter, or any student club that’s in the process of becoming a chapter.

What if I miss the event?

We won’t be able to accommodate every timezone, but we will try to make a recording that’s available to everyone.

If you know ahead of time that you can’t make it, but would like to see some specific topic discussed, feel free to post questions on the Discord server’s “roundtables” chat channel.
