There’s only three weeks left to the onGameStart 2012 conference and some info about the venue, agenda and a party was released. My speaking at the conference was also confirmed - I’ll give a talk about the js13kGames competition.
The conference will take place in Zielna Conference Center (Zielna 37) - one of the oldest buildings in Warsaw - which is near the Świętokrzyska Metro Station and in the strict city center.
Most of the speakers were announced today and the list is pretty impressive. The unquestionable star of this year’s edition is Jordan Mechner, author of the original Prince of Persia, but all the other speakers are definitely worth listening to. Before the two-day one-track conference, on wednesday September 19th, you will have a chance to take part in the workshops.
After the first day of the conference, on the evening of the 20th of September, there will be an afterparty in the Black Sheep Store. Free beers and vodka are included.
I will be speaking at the first day of the conference about the js13kGames competition (”13 simple steps to create a compo”), so you will have a chance to learn about it from the different perspective. How it all started, how I managed to get the speakers, prizes and everything, and of course we’ll see the best entries - I’ll announce the winners of the compo during the talk. You can find my bio in the game that you can play on the conference website.
