M+Dev is returning to the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin on February 14 – Valentines Day! M+DEV is a video game development conference hosted by the Wisconsin Games Alliance that aims to engage game developers and all the many talented professionals who support the industry. It is a great venue for those seeking to enter professional roles that support the game development industry. This conference provides a gathering place for game developers in the state, the region and beyond to discuss and share the latest information on the science, art, mechanics and business of making games.
M+Dev provides the opportunity for people working within the broad context of game development to engage in professional development and networking activities. This conference seeks to meet a broad diversity of needs. Many think of video games in the realm of AAA entertainment releases, but video games on a broader spectrum also include educational or serious games, and digital training platforms and simulations. To this end, M+Dev works hard to provide great experiences for those working in the entertainment, educational/academic, and professional development/training settings.
M+Dev 2020 will feature Keynote Speaker Felix Kramer
Felix Kramer is a freelance producer, PR, and business developer who has collaborated with indies and small publishers for the past nine years. They work from their home in Canada with teams all over the world, with the goal of making business and production in indie more accessible and available to small teams.
