We've dedicated the two days before PAX Prime to the developer community for the craft that is game making. PAX Dev is about elevating the art and creating a place to share, debate and learn.
A few years ago, a group of developers asked us to host an offsite gathering while they were in town for PAX. That idea took hold, and from those conversations we decided to dedicate the two days before PAX Prime to the developer community. We're shooting for a small, intimate setting where digital and pen/paper game developers alike can focus on their craft. No business. No press. Just sharing, learning and debate.
