This weekend - 2-4 September 2011 in Gdańsk, Poland - National Conference on Computer Games Development takes place (see also forum.warsztat.gd topic). It's the first edition of this event. I'm going to go there and I look forward to see if it will be good.
It's impossible not to compare it to the IGK conference in Siedlce, which was already held 8 times. Similar to it, WGK is focused primarily on games programming, includes lectures on Friday evening and whole Saturday and on Sunday there is a competition where team of up to 4 people have to develop a game from scratch during 8 hours. We will see if MrKaktus and others from Gdansk University of Technology succeed in organizing as good or even better conference. Anyway it's a great opportunity for us - programmers from Warsztat and other Polish game developers - to meet live and have a nice time together. So see you in Gdańsk!
