How to take part

#notGDC is a way for people who make games to share ideas, skills and things they love with the international games community.



Write Something

Pen us a blog, an essay, a love letter, a research paper, or mix up a great thread on Twitter.


Record Something

Record a podcast with friends, a quick YouTube video, or do a Twitch stream.


Share Something

Open source some helpful code, release a tutorial project, or teach us a weird trick.


Or Something Else

Got a different idea? If you've got something to share, we want to help you share it.
