Registration is now open for GDC Masterclass Fall 2021 courses

Check out all the great classes available in the GDC Masterclass Fall section.

The organizers of Game Developers Conference are thrilled to announce that registration is now open for the GDC Masterclass Fall 2021 program, taking place at the end of September. This round sees the return of our most-popular workshops and certified courses, along with the debut of a new specialty class.

The GDC Masterclass program comprises of small-group virtual workshops delivering in-depth training around some of the most important work and challenges facing game developers today. These live virtual courses go beyond high-level theory into real-world application, helping attendees acquire practical experience that can be applied immediately on return to the studio. Instructors will teach, guide, and work directly with you on short assignments that help build crucial skills to support your work in the studio or your next job hunt.

Courses include the return of Susan O'Connor’s masterclass on merging story and gameplay, along with our Certified Agile Leadership for Game Development class with Clinton Keit. For those eager for our newest offering, there’s Russell Campbell’s practical course on Unity C# programming.

Here are the courses being offered in September:
