Social Games are drawing developers in like never before. There's good reason. Like mobile games devlopers don't necessarilyneed enormous budgets and backing. Small teams can and do make innovative and popular games.

The Social Game Festprovides a forum where you can work with or find other developers, artists, game or application designers to start, build or finishyour social game or application. If you are new to social games and want basic background there are sessions that help with that. If youare an old hand and realisically realize you need to put the time aside and/or find additonal talent, this is also a great place for you.

This event is open to the general public.

Sessions 1 & 2 contain basic background information for those that wish to follow along with a lesson while sessions 3 & 4 are concentrate on game or application making.
