While questions abound about the cancellation of European Games week three days from it’s starting event and the Neon Agency’s handling of it, the Developer and Gaming Community have scrambled to put events in place so attendees unable to cancel flights and hotels at such short notice will still see some benefit from it.
There are also some planned events that may be of interest.
Dublin Games Conference:
Raid Studios and Tiltspot have come together with the help of sponsors to run a one day conference on Tuesday 17th
Tickets are free but you should book to ensure you get a space.
Game Workers Unite will be talking and taking Q&A at TechWontBuildIt at TOG hackerspace 7-9 p.m.
Other potential discussion topics will be posted to the #twbidiscuss hashtag on twitter: https://twitter.com/hashtag/twbidiscuss?src=hash
See meet up page for more details.
