Letter from the ED – February 2023

15 Feb 2023


Greetings Everyone!

I want to let you know that we’ve got some exciting things coming up in the next few weeks. First, I’ll be at DICE in Las Vegas next week. If you’re attending, I would love to meet you and sync up, share some updates about IGDA, and learn a little bit more about what’s going on with you, your studio, or your company. 

Additionally, the IGDA will have a presence at GDC! We will have a booth from Wednesday through Friday and some IGDA Roundtables, which you can find more information on here. If you have plans to go to GDC, I hope you stop by and say hello. It’s a great opportunity to connect with old friends and meet new ones. 

As you know, the IGDA serves as a resource for all game creators. And speaking of resources, we recently launched one of our newest ones called Game Developers Network–a news aggregator that pulls thought leadership from the industry around the world and puts it into one place for you. I’m a big believer in going to one place for all the things that you need, whether it’s news, an email inbox, etc. We’ve partnered with Aggregage to provide a news outlet for your needs. The more you use it and interact with the articles, the more it learns about what you like and it will start showing you some things that are more relevant to you. So please feel free to check it out!

I hope you have a great rest of your timezone and I look forward to connecting with you at an upcoming industry event or setting up a time to meet.


Take care!

Dr. Jakin Vela

Executive Director, IGDA
