Returning to GDX this year is our signature conference, with relevant content for all developers, from indie to AAA. The conference provides a wide array of professional development opportunities at an affordable price. Our Summits this year will focus around Building a Better Games Industry, EDI, Games + AI, and our newest addition: Indigeneity and Diaspora in Games. Not only are we AI experts, but we are passionate about building a better industry and creating the industry that we want to see as a community. Join us for a vast array of expert speakers and panels in art, voice acting, business & marketing, computing science, and more!
