VGMU!: The End of Place
ORGANIZER’S NOTE: We won’t have the direct link until the evening of June 16, but this talk will be streamed to the Austin Tech Live Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/austintechlive/videos
Whatever happened to Austin as a video game development community, scene or professional and amateur hub where games got made and celebrated? What have the past two years of international pandemic done to efforts to bring developers together in fellowship, and where do we go from here? John Henderson will give a brief history lesson about where Austin has been, where it ought to be, and why it matters even more now that working from home is here to stay, and the stakes are higher than ever even as Austin continues to grow and change.
John Henderson has been a community organizer among game developers in Austin since 2009, including IGDA-Austin, Austin Game Dev Beer Night, Captivate Conference and VGMU!
