Game Developers Conference

It’s that time of year again, GDC is this week in San Francisco and PacketZoom will be there! I’m very excited that PacketZoom is co-sponsoring the F2P Forum Mixer on Wednesday (, so come by and see us! We’ll be able to tell you all about our tech and how it will help your mobile game.

Tips for the Week

  • In addition to the expo floor and sessions, the GDC parties abound and we’ve got a few links that should point you in the right direction. A lot of the parties have closed off preregistration at this point, but here are a few that have been making the rounds:

  • Trying to get around? There is no shortage of Uber and Lyft drivers, as well as fairly robust public transportation, most destinations are within walking distance. This is where others might try to get you to use their referral code to download the app.

  • Some of the area right around the Moscone Center can be bit sketchy at night, so it would be a good idea to walk in groups. Better to have a bigger MTU and fewer lost packets

  • Carry around a bottle of water - the days can get long, the stuff for sale at Moscone is expensive and there aren’t a lot of places to buy stuff (expect that Starbucks will have a super long line)

  • Got some downtime? Go to one of the nearby hotels and see the hordes of people ‘doing business’ in the lobby or at the bar. Look for me at either the Marriott or the W. I’ll be the guy with the red bag.

  • This year, it looks like it’s going to be a rainy GDC. Bringing something that keeps you dry would be a good idea.
