As a Texas based chapter of the International Game Developers’ Association (IGDA®), we here at GameDev Houston are focused on delivering resources and community to game developers across the city.
IGDA Houston aims to provide value with some of the following:
48 hour hackathons focused on game dev. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression.
WORKSHOPS, PANELS, & TALKS
Learn and grow with others! We hold monthly events that are focused on bringing in industry professionals to share their knowledge for the community. There are always a wide variety of topics covered.
We have a monthly mixer on the last Tuesday of every month. Come join us and socialize with other local developers!
Keep in touch after the event! We have an active Discord and Facebook group that provide a platform for local and remote devs to keep in touch with each other.
