#yegfemdev - Professional Women in Games Meetup

Tuesday November 13

Edmonton | Alberta | Canada

Women in Games Edmonton is a monthly meetup where friendly, game-loving female and non-binary game developers and allies can share stories and ideas. People of all disciplines and skill levels are welcome, and you are encouraged to show off your work to your peers. This is our 6th event! Our 5th event at Beercade was enormously successful so we've decided to continue to run our events there... Come hang out with our huge network of female developers, talk shop and play some arcade games! Beercade has more than 80 arcade and pinball games, covering all interests and genres. There will also be $1 tacos, and a huge (more than 50 unique taps) draft beer menu! This month we will also have a special guest speaker - Shanda Wood (@ShandaRecruiter), BioWare's in-house recruiter, will be giving a talk about the recruitment process, how to professionally approach a recruiter, what AAA studios are looking for, what not to do, and more. We look forward to meeting you there! ----- Women in Games Edmonton is dedicated to a harassment-free meetup for everybody, regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, body size, race, or religion. We expect guests to be open and welcoming, and have a zero-tolerance policy towards harassment, bullying, and hate speech.
