Casual Connect is one of my favorite conferences in the gaming industry. It’s casual and fun but still provides great opportunities for connecting with new people and moving your business forward. If you are like me, your focus during the conference is on meeting new people and you end up missing most of the sessions. The good news is that the guys at CGA uploaded the lectures to youtube for us and the even better news is that I handpicked the best ones for you. If you are into watching game design sessions in your free time you are in for a treat.

Marc starts his speech with sharing his own experience as a developer and effectively translates that experience into a discussion about today’s funding challenges.
