Networking Plan
Social Media Platforms:
In the realm of game development, leveraging social media platforms is
highly important. LinkedIn stands as a professional platform akin to an interactive
portfolio. It enables you to showcase your skills, connect with industry professionals,
and engage in specialized groups that foster discussions and collaborations. Twitter,
a microblogging platform, serves as an avenue for industry discourse and
networking, allowing you to follow industry leaders, share insights, and stay updated with
trends. I have already started the process of setting up a proper LinkedIn Profile, as well as
purging my Facebook page and Twitter page of things that could be seen as less savory in
the professional world.
Participation in game development forums such as GameDev.com (current waitlisted) and
GameDev.net (sign up while you still can) is advantageous for knowledge exchange. These forums serve
as knowledge repositories where individuals can seek advice, share experiences, and learn from the
expertise of others. Additionally, following industry-specific tools and platforms like Unity, Unreal,
DirectX, and OpenGL on social media facilitates staying abreast of technological advancements and
networking within the developer communities.
Professional Organization:
The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) offers a
structured platform for professionals in the gaming industry. By joining
IGDA, individuals gain access to a network of peers, resources, and
events, fostering professional development, knowledge sharing, and
industry advocacy. Joining as a student can save you money as well as
they have reduced rates for students, only $30 per annum. In addition
there are groups like the special interest group for computer human
interaction, https://sigchi.org/. SIGCHI takes a look at the
connections between humans and computers and the way we interact bringing great insight on
upcoming issues with UI/UX.

TEM 202312-12
Networking Strategies:
Networking strategies encompass both online and offline engagement. Online engagement
involves active participation in forums, groups, and discussions related to game development. Offline
networking includes attending local meetups and events tailored to game developers, offering
opportunities for face-to-face interaction and potential collaborations. As an online student most of my
engagement has been online with networking thus far, however through https://devfestl.com/ I have
found there are events that happen regularly within a reasonable day trip drive. I will be seriously
considering attending some of these during my time here at full sail to become better accustomed to the
industry and continue into my professional career.
Conferences:
Attending industry-specific conferences serves as a cornerstone for professional growth. These
conferences provide insights into emerging trends, facilitate networking with industry leaders, and offer
educational sessions and workshops. While conferences are going to be key in the future, for now I have
simply gotten involved in some interactive podcasts and online events. There is a ton of information that
can be garnered from listening to those that are actively involved in the industry speak on trends and
upcoming events as well as the current technology and best practices the industry pros are using.

Immediate Networking Actions:
Immediate networking actions involve optimizing my LinkedIn profile to reflect my skills and
aspirations within the gaming industry. Engaging on Twitter by sharing industry-related content and
following key industry figures aids in building an online presence. Active participation in game
development forums establishes connections and will demonstrate my involvement in the community. In
addition to these public sources, I will continue to use the discord to connect with the community of full
sail students where budding professional relationships are forming. The link to the official Full Sail
Discord and the discord I created during Creative presentations are both listed in the links cited below
come join us. As well the link to my linked in profile.
