Lightning Talks, Pub Crawl, DCS's Game Jam, what's not to love?
And I'm back! I'm sure you missed these standard newsletters after whatever last week's was. We've got some cool stuff this week: the start of DCS's two-week game jam, and our lightning talks shortly after the game jam's keynote.
We are also just under two weeks away from our membership cut-off to vote in our upcoming elections, so get yourself and your friends registered. If you are receiving this by email, congrats, you are signed up!
Only a couple more things to pester you about: our server infrastructure is still under maintenance (who knew a bunch of mostly worryingly old servers had problems?), and WASD 2023 has a released schedule!
Without further ado, our newsle- wait, a sponsor spot?!
