IndieXchange sessions are designed to help intermediate and advanced developers push each other up to the next level. It's a full-day opportunity to network with peers, attend clinics & master classes, and discuss common challenges & opportunities. Past sessions have included topics such as developing successful team management strategies, getting the most out of rapid development, fundraising for your production, starting a business, getting noticed, promoting your game, diversity and legal issues. Additional panels provide specific information about how to develop for the major platforms like Sony PlayStation, Microsoft, Nintendo and more.
