This is Hypnos, coming to you live from the GDC in the Moscone Center.
For those of you that may not have heard of it, the Game Developers Conference is a very large annual gathering of all sorts of industry professionals from mobile, console, and online games who gather to mingle, network, lecture, and exchange news for a week-long conference and lots of parties.
Our very own Cap'n Cleaver is going to be speaking at a huge number of sessions and round tables and things! He has blogged about what he'll be doing on his personal blog, The Flogging Will Continue.
I did not see as many sessions I was interested in attending this year as last year, but I wanted to attend again because I had such a fantastic experience with the Conference Associates volunteer program last year. I met a great number of sleepy-er, I mean nice-folks and working a chaotic conference of 10,000 attendees to the 300 of you volunteers creates a great close and warm atmosphere.
In fact, I had such a great time that I shanghaied Hermes and Bia into volunteering with me this year! Great hijinks to follow, I'm sure.
A lot of folks go to the conference to network and meet people in the industry and drop off resumes. I'm luckily blessed with a great job (thanks, you guys!) at a great company already, so I will be taking the opportunity to stalk our dear Cap'n Cleaver and One-eyed Jack to their various speaking appointments and showering you with pictures throughout the week.
One bit of trivia for you conference-goers that you may not have realized: those bags they hand you when you check in full of flyers and papers and little bags of jelly bellies? Each one of those bags is hand packed by one of an army of volunteers. We did those yesterday. Whew!
