VentureBeat recently shared how the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) plans to help struggling game developers during a crisis, including the ongoing pandemic. From webinars hosted by their 115 local chapters to partnerships with online game developer community GameDev.world, the IGDA is ramping up their support of all developers during these trying times. In addition to sharing details on the upcoming webinars, VentureBeat’s Dean Takahashi highlighted some of the ways the IGDA is providing resources for game developers trying to adapt to challenging new circumstances.
In addition, the IGDA has created a set of resources and recommendations for event diversity. Developers are sharing ideas on how to best work from home, and how to support their isolated employees. The idea is to continue to help developers around the world achieve fulfilling and sustainable careers in game development.
