  • What are the topics of the IndieXchange sessions?

Each of these clinics provides sample contracts, pr plans, and other useful elements. Every developer who submits to IndieCade are eligible to attend these sessions free-of-charge, however clinic space is limited and requires a rsvp for each workshop.
