Comic-Con International: San Diego is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular artforms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.
New for 2017, Comic-Con is introducing the Game Creator Connection, an opportunity for game developers—whether currently working in the industry or aspiring to do so—to receive valuable advice, insights, and mentoring from seasoned veterans of the game industry representing diverse backgrounds—production, programming, art, business development, and so on.
The Game Creator Connection is organized and run by professional game developers, including a former executive director of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) as well as representatives of the IGDA San Diego chapter. The GCC is a perfect opportunity to seek expert guidance on a wide range of topics pertaining to your career path, skill set, goals, portfolio, current challenges, or whatever career issues you’d like to discuss. Participants will rotate at timed intervals between mentors, to maximize the amount of feedback.
