Organized by the UBM Tech Game Network, GDC 2014 will take place March 17-21 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California. Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech.
My husband had some oral surgery awhile ago and had [even more dental issues on the way to GDC Europe]. However, with a Monday morning lecture scheduled, there were very few options for us. He was a trouper and delivered his talk, then turned to me and said "I need a doctor." We then started our journey to find him health care in Germany. Thankfully, the first person we encountered was an amazing CA named Andre; he brought us down to first aid and upon finding out that we would need to go to a doctor, talked to GDC, then drove us to the doctor and set us all up with an appointment. He came into the room and translated for us, and when our credit cards didn't work (American cards have no chip) he paid for Brian's healthcare, as well as medicine. He then drove Brian back to the hotel, and me back to GDC. Brian required a return visit the next day at 7am, and Andre picked us up at 6:45am and took us to the doctor again. He also brought us back there the following Friday. Andre was a savior, without him I have no idea what we would've done. He was so kind and humble, we are both truly touched. It's the small things, like unexpected kindness that count.
