It is time to close the conference season for this year. It has been a very interesting one, although I’ve spoken only at 4 places, they have been all very interesting.
GOTO Amsterdam: A very important software development conference in the Amsterdam edition, they had a mobile track, I guess I couldn’t miss it.
GDC China: My first time speaking at a GDC, where I presented my “Indie Game Developer Survival Guide”. Great experience, great city and great conference.
DroidCon Amsterdam: For the 3rd year in a row DroidCon celebrated its Dutch edition, and for the 3rd year on a row, I presented a talk there. I think I am holding a record on this one.
GDC Taipei: I was asked to repeat my talk from China at GDC Taipei. I am really humbled that they like it so much that they wanted it there. Also a great experience.
And for next year?
One of the great things of being an international speaker is that you get to travel a lot, given the sort of conferences I like and the expertise I have (Android & Game development) GDCs and DroidCons are where I find myself at home.
So, for 2014 I am sending talk proposals to:
GDC and GDC Europe: The bigger editions of GDC, held in San Francisco (largest) and Cologne, are my next targets to speak at. I want to be able to say that I’ve done the whole set and I’ve been told that the one in San Francisco is amazing.
DroidCon London and DroidCon Berlin: These editions are slightly larger and older than the Amsterdam one, and I’d like to see them first hand.
