Looking to get a start in the gaming business? Learn what you'll need to compete for jobs, get noticed by industry pros, and make a living out of making fun.
Join us for our special September event to learn more about getting into the game industry from industry pro Dana Hanna. We'll also have opportunities for developers to share video and/or playables for one-on-one feedback.
ABOUT DANA HANNA:
Sometime in the early 1990s, Dana discovered that some people would actually pay her to produce and design games. She's spent the twenty or so years since taking advantage of this lunacy. Her experience ranges from CD-i to Xbox 360 / Kinect, from downloadable casual to massively multiplayer, and from software for your robot dog to first-person shooters. She's shipped more titles than she can remember for a variety of publishers, including Electronic Arts, Sony, Valve, and Microsoft.
Dana specializes in the business, development, and community aspects of online multiplayer games across all platforms and genres. She's currently Senior Producer at Hidden Path Entertainment, working on super-nifty but secret stuff.
