Session Name: Creating And Nurturing Your Indie Game Community
Speaker(s): Jeff Lindsay, Jim Munroe
Company Name(s): GliderLab, GameSetWatch
Track / Format: Independent Games Summit
Overview: In two short, sweet mini-talks, notable independent game community organizers discuss how you can get involved in nurturing the indie community in your local area - or for your particular flavor of independent games. Firstly, SuperHappyDevHouse and TIGJam contributor Jeff Lindsay, who has set up Hacker Dojo in the Bay Area as a permanent base for the tech community, will explain what he's learned from being involved in indie game site TIGSource and his other projects in the tech community. Next, Toronto-based independent creator Jim Munroe, the person behind local indie game-centric events like The Hand Eye Society and The Artsy Games Incubator, explains how the area has grown a strong indie community and how you can mobilize your area to flood out of the basement and into the streets!
