This year's js13kGames opening and closing online meetups, Kick-off and Awards Ceremony respectively, after a few years of being led by Sascha Depold from eBay, were hosted by me personally.
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.
August 13th is a special date for me tenth time in a row, since it is the day when the js13kGames competition starts. This year, like previously, we've gathered online at the kick-off meetup.
Even though the pandemic is in full swing, there are still some options for online meetups or conferences. And since I gave one talk recently, it would be cool to keep the tradition of posting trip reports afterwards, even though I haven't travelled anywhere.
We had a blast last weekend with eBay Tech kicking off js13kGames 2019 hackday on Saturday August 17th in GameOn Berlin, an arcade machine heaven.
