Mike’s GDC Survival Guide

Last year I wrote a “survival guide” for my students going to the Game Developer’s Conference for the first time. I’ve been going to GDC for about 22 years, and this is based on what I’ve learned.

This year I added to the survival guide and posted it on Facebook, where it was extremely popular. It’s on Google Docs, so I thought I’d post a link to it here too. Feel free to use this and pass it along (without changes and with attribution, please).

The doc is split into these sections:

  • Before you go
  • Things to bring
  • Basic survival in San Francisco
  • Helpful places to know
  • At the conference
  • Be social and professional

If you have bits of GDC wisdom you’d like me to include, let me know!

I hope to see you at the show!
