Students of game development, with or without IGDA membership, are welcomed at these events, an opportunity GameCareerGuide.com strongly recommends they take. Attending IGDA meetings gives students greater exposure to the game development community by allowing them a casual and welcoming environment in which to connect with working video game makers. And because the purpose of the chapter meetings to share knowledge about the video game business, developers on hand tend to already be open to answering questions, offering advice, and generally assisting others in the community.
