Building the IMB and lessons learned in community building
In this talk, Kelly will be taking a retrospective look at building the Indie MEGABOOTH and the community that surrounds it. It’s been over 5 years and 700+ companies later since the initial Indie MEGABOOTH was run in early 2012 – which means plenty of experiences, success, failures, lessons and anecdotes to share! With a focus on community building and sustainable growth, along with extensive first hand observational views of hundreds of small teams, many of these lessons can be applied to your own community, company or initiative no matter how big or small!

About John Polson, Humble Bundle
Also co-creator and organizer of alt.ctrl.GDC, I fell in love with game devs since we first met at the very first PAX East years ago. I’d never chatted with a developer before then, but it was so inspiring to meet people equally passionate about games AND intelligent enough to make their passion come to life! From that moment, I have been committed to helping developers make their games a reality and I’m so excited and humbled to be in that position.
