SF Game Developers mixer--aka Drinks, conversation and shenanigans
Free Drinks? Insane Networking opportunity? Really cool game deveopers? Free $500 Gamification Summit Pass*? Guest appearance by Betty White?
Ok, maybe I made up that last one... but I didn't think you could turn the rest down.
What are your game development questions? Do you have the right network to answer them?
Chances are there are probably few meetups where you can meet a high cadre of game developers, producers, and studio heads. We pride ourselves in being one of those few meetups. Our events have bought out people from companies like Zynga, Booyah, EA, Playdom, RockYou, iWin, Kabam and everyone in between, even a few VCs.**
Come network with the best in gaming
On November 16th we bring you the San Francisco Game Developer’s mixer, the first in a series of bimonthly mixers where you meet brilliant game developers, designers, artists, deal makers and ecosystem service providers. Come network, brainstorm or simply chill out with awesome fellow developers. And I mean it when I say awesome--the last event brought out top industry people; 40% CEOs, CTOs, founders and other studio management, 30% producers, developers, & designers and 30% Business Development personnel.
Reserve your spot now - FREE!
This event is free, but we can only allow 150 attendees. Our last few events weren’t free but they sold out and we had to turn people away at the door. We don’t want to do that to you.
Reserve your spot now by clicking the ticket link above!
As always, if we haven’t met before make sure to come introduce yourself when you see us at the workshop. We look forward to meeting you there!
