What is GDC?
GDC is the game industry’s premier professional event, championing game developers and the advancement of their craft. The conference brings the game development community together to exchange ideas, solve problems, and shape the industry’s future across five days of education, inspiration, and networking.
Attendees include programmers, artists, producers, game designers, audio professionals, and business leaders. Some key features of GDC include a comprehensive selection of lectures, panels, and roundtable discussions.
The GDC Expo showcases the latest game development tools and services from leading technology companies such as Amazon, Epic, Google, Intel, Nvidia, Oculus, and Sony.
