The game industry is one built on passion, however, it's notoriously unstable. Projects come and go, and people go through revolving doors as they move from one company to another. The instability creates an undue amount of stress that eventually results in brain drain and attrition, which prevents the industry from growing as a whole. Layoffs are practically a given and whether or not one has experienced a layoff, it's an eventuality that one should prepare for.
Attendees will learn to recognize the situations that will lead to layoffs, find ways to weather the layoff, and make connections with other attendees to help them survive future layoffs.
Developers who are concerned about the current employment landscape and are looking for some stability in an unstable industry.
