Last month, on April 7-8th 2022, the JS Gamedev Summit was held online - a conference focusing on web game development, something that rarely happened in the past years.
I'm happy to report that after being awarded the GitHub Star status last year, and going through the verification process at the beginning of 2022, I was renewed for the second year in the program.
I've participated in two online events in January: Web 3 Round Table by OP Games about gaming now versus gaming in Web 3, and W3C Web Games workshop about next generation monetization.
I had the pleasure of joining a panel discussion titled Moving from Web 2 to Web 3 games that was held during the online GamesBeat Summit Next conference on November 9-10 2021.
I wasn't planning much for October, but ended up with a whole lot of online events I've attended and actively participated in over the past month.
Another bi-monthly online meetup of the W3C Games Community Group happened a few days ago, on April 15th, and this time two main presentation topics revolved around Unity and WebCodecs.
The ongoing pandemic and the end of the Mozilla Tech Speakers program accelerated my shift in focus towards more writing and coding, but this didn't last for too long.
I was so happy to see the projects I was rooting for in the first Grant for the Web open Call for Proposals were accepted and announced.
The last couple of months were tough, to say the least. They forced some changes in the plan I had for gamedev-related projects in 2020. The good thing is, given the diversification of our activities around Enclave Games, it shouldn't be that bad, although still an unpleasant shift in focus.
