How do you deal with job application rejection emails? How to you find a mentor? How can you attend networking events? And when you have a job, how do you balance the expectations of the role vs asking for help and feeling like an imposter?

When you tell someone that you make video games, the commoner will often ask ‘oh what kind of games do you make?’ and when you tell them that you also make board games, they will often reply ‘oh you mean like monopoly?” Join us, as we adventure across the common grounds between the two worlds of board game and video game development.
Peter Yang is a game developer and pitch agent who specializes in helping indie board game developers pitch their games to publishers. Also having spent many hours at video game jams and seen both greener sides of the fence, he wants to help change the way both sides of the game making world does development.
