    Just a few questions..

    Who can join IGDA?

    I’m a student at the mo, can I join the Irish Chapter?

    If so, what does being a member entail?

    Thanx :D

    Anyone at all can join the igda.

    You’re a student? Great, then you can get a students dicount.

    A full list of benefits and all the information you need can be found here.

    I can’t actually see where it mentions a free subscription to Game Developers magazine, but you will get it. :)

    Welcome to the forums btw!

    Wow, student membership is only 35euro per year! Thats pretty cool.

    I’m in the process of signing up :D

    Cheers Ronny!

    No problem Jono.

    If you need to know anything else about the igda feel free to ask me. Or if I can’t answer it I’m sure someone else here will be able to.

    Best of luck.

    while I want to encourage as many people as possible to join the IGDA, please note that you don’t have to be a member to come along to any of the chapter events

    Speaking of the next event, what’s on the cards for the summer Tony?

    The next event is May 5th and features 2 speakers from Sony Europe speaking on the forthcoming handheld platform, the PSP

    After that, things are looking a bit vague just now – but hopefully after tonight’s committee meeting, we’ll have a better idea.

    It looks like the next event will be in June in Derry, and will feature a weekend workshop. After that, we hope to do something again in Dublin in August.

    Then keeping with in line with our goal of an event every 2 months, further events will happen in September and November – with one of those also taking place outside Dublin

    I’ll post again in a few days when things are hopefully a little clearer

    I should be able to get over for the August one.

    Hold on a sec – events outside of Dublin???? Why would you want to do a mad thing like that :D

    Hi guys I think i’ll be joining, but I’m going to wait until I am back in Dublin this september before doing so, any big events planned for the winter months????

    ps. \I’m generally new to this Irish Game Developers community, but I hope to get heavily involved. I think it’s high time that a good healthy Dev-Co scene sprung up in ireland.

    Anyone know how Kabooki are doing???
    hope they are well

    There are plans for a rather large ‘Awakening’ event to be held in Derry on the 15th of Oct…

    smaller events and shindigs will probably be arranged before that…

    everyone is invited to gd.ie events and IGDA Ireland events.

    You are encouraged to take out membership of the IGDA if you are working in the industry or a student wanting to get into it.

    so far most events have been free thanks to sponsorship.

    Only e35? Hrm, thought it was more but not complaining! Definitly gona join when I get some money and get away from college for awhile. :D

    Hey. I was wondering is it worth a 17 year old student joining who will be looking for a job later next year (hopefuly at Dark water). Is it a good place to make contacts and learn more about the industry etc.
