Hi everyone! Visual;Conference 2018 is happening on January 13, and I wanted to share the news here as there are quite a lot of VN fans and devs on itch.io. This is the second year of the conference, and they have fully recorded all of last year's speakers which you can find on their website: https://vnconf.com/
This year's speakers include Christine Love (Analogue: A Hate Story, etc.), Tom "PYTOM" Rothamel (Ren'Py Lead Developer), Agilis (Project Manager, Sekai Project), to name a few. The full list is on the website, and they are looking for more too! Information below, copied from Aginyan's original post on Lemma Soft forums:
(By the way I am not an organizer, that would be Randy "Agilis" Au, but do check out their original post below)
Hi! Some of you may remember that in January 2017, the first Visual;Conference for VN developers happened -- some ~90 participants got together and we shared talks, experiences, and met a ton of VN developers from around the world. Everyone was so excited about how the event turned out, I've decided to run another one this coming January!
For those that missed the event, Youtube videos of the event are available on this playlist: http://bit.ly/VNConf2017playlist
I've opened the submission form for speakers: http://bit.ly/VNConf2018cfs
If you have a story you want to share about any aspect of the VN development process, I'd love to hear from you. No matter how big or small the topic, whether it's programming, business, art, music, localization, tech demos, whatever. The deadline for talk submissions is Dec 1, so you still have some time to think up ideas and submit them (multiple talk submissions are OK, the best one will be chosen, max 1 speaker slot per person).
I'm working on getting a couple of awesome guest speakers this year, but what really makes the event awesome are the wonderful talks submitted by you guys. So please send in your ideas and join us next year!
