Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Editors' Blog If computer game development is your thing, save your pennies and get yourself over to the Los Angeles Convention Centre.

From 18-21 October, the Game Developers Conference is being held in association with the Entertainment for All (E for All) exhibition.

Billed as a game career seminar, the conference will give attendees the chance to learn about the developer tools available, as well as what is involved in working in the industry.

The E for All event will also provide the necessary inspiration by giving developers a chance to play the games. It could, of course, also prove totally deflating by demonstrating that your "stupendously unique idea" has already been done by half a dozen other vendors.

Previous conferences have attracted some 16,000 delegates, so it will at least be a good place for wannabe developers to network. ®
