Syntax Error - Power Up games conference line up

Just like the previous two PDGC events, the third one comes with a subtitle/theme to its ideology. PDGC: Syntax Error brings focus to problems that need solutions.


The entire point of the online conference has always been to help indie and game developers learn from those in the know. Old masters and those new to the industry alike come together to give their advice and wisdom. The thought process is there are a lot of issues, problems, and errors in games, but there are just as many solutions to solve them.
