The 2015 Game Developers Conference is coming up fast, so now's the perfect time to sort out your schedule for the March conference.
To help streamline that process, conference officials encourage you to take advantage of the free, freshly revamped GDC 2015 Session Scheduler to plan out which talks you'd like to attend and ensure you don't miss anything the show has to offer.
If you've never used the Session Scheduler before, it's a fairly straightforward process to get started: simply select "Create Account" from the Session Scheduler page and provide a valid email address, then start adding talks to your personal GDC 2015 schedule.
Note: Due to system upgrades, if you already have a Session Scheduler account you must reset your password via the Session Scheduler website before you can access the service.
Once you've either created a new Session Scheduler account or reopened your old one, you can download the companion GDC Mobile app via iTunes or Google Play and log in with your account credentials to access your personal GDC schedule on the go.
If you already have the GDC Mobile app on your device, it's important that you update to the latest version -- otherwise, any password reset requests you send from the app won't be processed due to the afore-mentioned system upgrade.
The app allows users to view the full GDC 2015 session roster, create and export customized schedules, locate exhibitors on the Expo Floor, and directly request meetings with exhibitors via the app's 'Exhibitors' section.
This has been made possible in association with the GDC business matchmaking service, through which users can identify, contact, and request and schedule meetings with exhibitors. This valuable mobile resource should help make your life a little easier when it comes to connecting with the numerous other industry professionals at the show.
In addition to these scheduling and business matchmaking features, the app also allows attendees to view event photos, check-in to specific sessions and locations, and more.
It's a great way to communicate with your fellow game makers at GDC 2015, which will take place March 2-6 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
