A career in games is much more than getting a job offer. Join Ashley "Ash" Poprik as she demystifies the process for building a game development career outside of just the job. She will provide lessons on how to learn and teach as a professional game developer along with give advice on how to build a profile that will expand their personal game dev community beyond just their coworkers. Ashley "Ash" Poprik is a video game writer with experience working in AAA and indie spaces. She aims to give a transparent look at her experience working and growing in the games industry in a time of mass layoffs and ever-growing competition.


Attendees will gain a new understanding of what it takes to building a games career beyond the job. This will provide advice for next steps that are vital for a more stable career as well as personal growth. Attendees will also walk away with new tools for how to get their name out without having to jump between jobs. They will walk away feeling inspired to keep building themselves as an individual game developer.

Intended Audience

This is for those early in their game development career who have already gotten a job but haven't established themselves in the industry or those who have no idea how to continue growing when having a stable games job. It will be of particular interest to early developers looking for ways to keep growing their community in the games industry.
