The program, which you can download here, highlights the panels and speakers at this year’s show, including keynote speaker James Portnow of Extra Credits fame.
In its 12th year, SIEGE Con 2018 will focus on what it takes to “survive and thrive” in the gaming industry. Andrew Greenberg, SIEGE conference director and executive director of the Georgia Game Developers Association, said that SIEGE, more than ever before, is a place for game developers and industry experts to not only learn from one another, but to also invigorate the industry as a whole.
With great speakers like James Portnow from Extra Credits, Hi-Rez Studios VP Nathaniel Blair, Michelle Menard from Oxide Games and many others, attendees will always find sessions that both inform them and stimulate them to make better games.”
From expert panels on community management and team building, to talks on efficient game design and how to Kickstart your indie project, there’s something for both experts and novices alike on this year’s schedule.
For college and high school students interested in breaking into video games, there will be a career fair on Thursday, Oct. 4, from 8AM to 12PM.
