Edmonton Creates Nov. 24-26th

A big thanks to the folks at Walkthrough Entertainment for bringing this one to my attention! A conference involving game development is right up my alley. Edmonton Creates has more than that of course (including a behind-the-scenes look at Gord Downie’s The Secret Path) but it’s nice to see we’re getting game development-focussed content again.

Calling all Edmonton game developers!

Do you folks have the GDX blues?

Walkthrough Entertainment has partnered with NAIT to put together a game development track at the Edmonton Creates (EC) conference coming up on November 24-26.

The EC team has put together a fantastic lineup of business and marketing related sessions that are crucial to any game developer (or entrepreneurial creative maker) to have! We strongly believe that good business skills are essential to being a successful game developer and highly encourage you folks to come on out.

Here’s a preview of a few of the highlights:

■ *Digital Marketing Trends* with Catalina Briceño, Director of Industry and Market trends for the Canada Media Fund
■ *5 Steps to Discoverability* with the Magnify Digital Team
■ *Justin Lassen*, audio guru extraordinaire (VR/AR specialist)
■ *Audience Development Panel* with Lee Guille (Beamdog), Unsanity Live (Twitch Streamer), Erik Johnson (Life Goes On: Done to Death), and Chelsea Lagos (Get Social YEG)
