The Working GameDev Mother [2014]

30 Jul 2014

Caryn discusses that rare unicorn in the game development wild: the working game dev mother. She’ll talk about her experiences as a woman in the industry who transitioned into motherhood while continuing her career, and how the industry is potentially pushing women away by making it harder for women to be working moms, and what we can do to fix that.

Caryn Vainio has been a game developer for over ten years, a mom for over two years, and a gamer all her life. She’s currently a UX Designer at Z2 in Seattle.
