The Danish Chapter of International Game Developerâ€™s Association launches Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and you are invited to join!
The Danish Chapter of IGDA (IGDA.DK) continues our work for the danish game development community by launching SIGs in Game Design, Audio Design, Quality Assurance & Game Business.
SIGs are groups of people with an interest in the relevant topic that meets on a regular basis to exchange knowledge, network or discuss developments within the field. The SIGs are coordinated by IGDA.dk. Participation in the SIGs is free and doesnâ€™t require membership of IGDA.
