Video Game Panels
If you're unsure what a 'panel' is, just think of something like a class, lecture, or demonstration based on a specific topic of interest. The panel can be about someone's life, a type of culture, or something as silly as a Cards Against Humanity session.
This year's panels at CGF will be exemplary and everything will kick off with a 'Women in Game Dev' panel. Keep in mind these are some real industry types sharing their knowledge and experience working within the video game industry! The list of panels for this year's event isn't super-long, but the 8 different panels selected are sure to make a lasting impression on you as an attendee some do your best to catch at least one or two of them.
