GDCbug_2010_200x200The 2010 Game Developers Conference is rapidly approaching. GDC is again this year focusing a special track on iPhone game development, and we’re expecting a bunch of iPhone developers to attend.

If you’re going to be in town for GDC, make sure you hit up the iPhone Developers Union / IUGO party at the Marriott Wednesday night. The party last year was a great time and a wonderful way to meet up with iPhone game developers from all over the world.

Since I’m based in SF, I’ll be around all week and available to meet up. I would love to meet up and see what you are working on, talk iPhone and iPad gaming, or just grab a beer. If you’d like to meet up, please contact me at jeff.scott {at} 148apps.com.
