Passes for the Game Developers Conference 2015 are going fast, and today we're excited to announce a very special session that you won't want to miss.
This year we're kicking off GDC with the fourth annual Flash Forward session, starting at 9:30am on Wednesday, March 4th in the West Hall of San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center.
The Flash Forward offers attendees an opportunity to hear what will be discussed in sessions taking place Wednesday-Friday directly from the people giving the talks, which should help listeners better decide which sessions are perfect for their needs. Plus, audience members can expect to be entertained by some of the biggest names and foremost experts in the games industry.
Flash Forward presenters are hand-picked by the GDC Advisory Board, ensuring that the session will feature an eclectic mix of speakers that represents the full breadth of the conference. Those selected will have the chance to grab attendees' attention by taking the stage for a brief period of time -- 30-45 seconds, tops -- to present a rapid-fire overview of what their session is and why it's worth checking out.
This year the hour-long session will be headlined by industry veterans Brenda Romero (Romero Games, UCSC) and Laura Fryer (Oculus VR), and they'll be presenting their own informal take on the state of the industry before participating in what always proves to be fun, fast-paced event that highlights some of the best GDC 2015 talks.
Still on the fence? Take a moment to watch the video recorded during last year's Flash Forward session at GDC 2014 on the GDC Vault.
All of the announced talks are now available in the online GDC 2015 Session Scheduler, where you can begin to build your conference week and later export it to the up-to-the-minute GDC Mobile App, coming soon.
