Women have always played a major role in video game development. It is an exciting industry that covers a variety of different spaces, including AAA, indie, mobile, educational, and everything in between. And this time we are hosted by the biggest, baddest, awesomest game studio of the Netherlands: Guerrilla Games! By hosting this Girl Code meetup, Guerrilla wants to give attendees a closer look at the field of video game development, and perhaps even inspire them to consider a career in the industry!
/// Open call for speaker ///
As always I want to offer the stage to our community and therefore I have an open call for a speaker. So if you (a woman developer) have a talk about anything ‘Game Development’ hit me up with a title of your proposed talk and an abstract of about 3-5 sentences what it will be about and who knows one of the 10-15 minute spots is yours! Please email me your proposals at [masked] before May 15.
