Video game lovers, here is another summit that you may want to be part of. However, I think that you have to be a game developer or programmer to participate in the East Coast Games Summit, which is to be held in November. This is actually part of a bigger event, the Video Game Expo. Worthplaying has this report:
Co-sponsored by GameJobs.com and GameRecruiter, the East Coast Games Summit is an industry conference that supports a range of programming and networking opportunities. Summit tracks include: “Scrum Deconstructed,” a hands-on workshop for game industry management and technologists; ‘Breaking In’ a single-track mini-conference for students and others interested in making a career out of games; ‘Pitch You Game Idea’ , a session for would-be game entrepreneurs to present their game concepts to game industry leaders; and a number of additional keynotes and panel sessions on hot topics in the game industry.
“The East Coast Games Summit helps the videogame industry grow not only on a management-process level, but on an education-outreach level as well,” stated Fiona Cherbak, Vice President of Marketing at GameRecruiter. “For people not already in the games industry, there is an opportunity to gain a lot of knowledge about the the games making process and also get your foot in the door for a possible career in videogames.”
I am sure that you have been fantasizing about a career in the video game industry. Well, here is your chance! Go visit the web site of VGXPO for more information.
