//What is the IndieCade Professional Conference?

Now in its fourth year, IndieCade's professional conference is unique in its focus -- by and for -- the independent game creator community, related industries, and their many supporters. The IndieCade conference is filled with amazing speakers, sessions, networking events, and parties that give the community an annual opportunity to come together to celebrate our successes, to get inspired, to check in on what the community has been up to over the last year, and to see what is in store for the year to come. It is deliberately an intimate conference and space is limited.

The dynamic IndieCade 2011 conference is co-chaired by John Sharp, Colleen Macklin, & Andy Nealen.

Somehow IndieCade is both cozy and open, a truly by-the-community-for-the-community event." John, Colleen & Andy
