Past gaming events: devcom digital 2020 (quick overview with social media)

devcom digital 2020 (or #ddc2020) was a very long event in its digital format, with social media posts giving a short overview of what happened in these two weeks.

Taking place from August 17-30, 2020 and already previewed in the Upcoming gaming events: devcom digital 2020 article, I wasn’t sure I could attend due to personal reasons and time management. But I did, and with the help of my EMR’s Twitter page. I’ll give you an idea of what interesting talks were held.

While the number of talks I attended might not seem very high, considering it was two weeks, there was enough interesting content to wrap one’s head around, being a game developer or not. The option to watch re-plays certainly helped with the time schedule. So stay tuned for more detailed information soon!

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
