The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) exists as a global network of collaborative projects and communities comprised of individuals from all fields of game development – from programmers and producers to writers, artists, QA and localization. They bring together developers at key industry conferences, in over 90 Chapters and in Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Whether you’re a student with a goal to become a game developer or a seasoned veteran, regardless if you’re based in the US or any country/region in the world, whether you’re an indie developer or in a AAA studio, whether your primary platform is a PC, console or a tabletop – we welcome you home to the IGDA!
