December is usually less intensive because of the holidays and the end of the year – mine was quite packed though.
After missing out on Mozilla’s All Hands in Hawaii and San Francisco (although I was at GDC 2017 a few months earlier), I was invited to Austin in Texas (planned to be Cancun in Mexico, but was moved because of the earthquakes), and was super excited to meet the “new” Emerging Technologies team.
Let’s quickly summarize two conferences that happened in Warsaw recently: Code Europe on December 7th and GDG DevFest on December 9th. Both events were confirmed very late and both happened just before I flew to Austin for Mozilla’s All Hands.
This monthly report is delayed three weeks – it shows how busy my schedule was. There still was a lot of work with the js13kGames competition, but at least it’s finally getting to an end. Also, the last Gamedev.js Warsaw meetup this year happened.
Last meetup this year was held on Tuesday, November 28th in the same place as usual. It was also the very first one I haven’t led personally, because I had laryngitis and couldn’t say a word.
Please give a warm welcome to Santa’s bravest helper who’s in trouble just before Christmas and have to escape the flood by building up the tower from the available presents.
The Gamedev.js YouTube channel reached 100 subscribers, so I was able to finally change the channel’s url to a memorable one instead of a random string, and the Gamedev.js Weekly newsletter reached 200 issues, so I decided it’s a good excuse to do a little review of other Gamedev.js-related numbers.
Even though the js13kGames competition ended, there’s still plenty of work to be done. I did manage to do some other things in the meantime though.
