Questions about the SGDA Summit

The Summit is a single day gathering for any interested student, indie, or professional developers. Its purpose is to provide NETWORKING opportunities for all attendees while allowing them to also LEARN new skills and be inspired.
There will be guest SPEAKERS from a variety of different backgrounds including indie devs, AAA devs, engineers, artists, and businesspeople. Each of the host clubs will also provide WORKSHOPS on useful game dev skills and technologies. Whatever your profession is there will be something of interest to you.
There will also be opportunities to relax, play games and form connections with fellow game developers from across Southern California.
Oh, PLUS there will be giveaways, swag, and food!
NOPE! All you need is a passion for games and a desire to learn about game development. The Summit is geared toward learning so hopefully you will learn enough at the summit to get out there and make your own game!
Parking will cost $4.00 for the day, but the event is FREE to enter! However, monetary donations to improve next year's Summit are appreciated.
The summit is designed with the interest of learning and self-improvment in mind. We suggest you bring an open mind and something with which to take NOTES.
If you wish to participate in workshops, you should bring your LAPTOP as well. We will send out an email letting you know what software you should have installed beforehand, if any.
It will be a long day so dress SEMI-CASUALLY! Although industry professionals will be present, you should not treat the summit like a job interview. You may submit your resume when you register, but you do not need to bring it with you.

Unfortunately, our venue only has enough space and we only have enough food to accommodate 200 people. Members of clubs affiliated with SGDA will receive priority admission to the event. If you want to guarantee a spot at the event register as early as possible and consider becoming a member of one of the SGDA clubs.
After we reach our limit, students will still be able to register for "General Admission" but we will unfortunately be unable guarantee food, t-shirts, or seating at our events or general admission attendees.
Nope! However, if you know for sure you will not be able to stay for the whole duration, please consider registering for "general admission" when EventBrite tickets go up. It is only fair to those who are able to enjoy the event to its fullest.
